I don’t recall a regional programme that has gone through so many lead anchors. Laurie Mayer, Bev & Giles, Bev & Geoff, Rob & Polly and now Rob & Natalie. The only constant is the ever superb John Young!


ITV News West Country... phew!

Kylie is returning to Brizzle in 2020?

When her "secondment" to Cardiff began, I wasn't sure if we'd actually lost her forever.

To give Kylie Pentelow credit, the single headed format of Wales at Six suits her delivery a lot better than as a co-presenter in Bristol. It'll be a shame when Andrea Byrne returns to be honest.

If anything Kylie should be offered pres duties on ITV News London which is largely being supported by two freelancers currently with Charlene White on maternity leave and Lucrezia Millarini largely training for Dancing on Ice.

Since when? I thought Duncan still does BBC World News shifts in addition to covering ITV News shifts?

ITV News London has four presenters: Duncan is freelance whilst Lucrezia, Geraint and Charlene are ITN only.

Did Vanessa Cuddeford ever co-host SET or did she freelance as a presenter/reporter only?

Vanessa has presented alongside Rob on a couple of occasions I’ve seen.

I don't think SET even has a permanent in-house weather presenter? They either seem to hire John Hammond and Sara Thornton from Weather Trending, relief from London such as Sarah Keith-Lucas or Nina Ridge who is also a school teacher in Kent.

Like Polly Evans, Rachel Mackley went off, came back and then went again.

It was a crying shame they let the marvellous Kaddy Lee-Preston leave!
