What did Bob say at the start today?

The official line is "ITV News in Central", it wasn't Bob who said it today or last night.

Just heard again the intro at 22:30, "ITV News in Central". Sounds a bit odd. Confused

ITV News Central have stated (over FB message) that some viewers said they didn't like 'from Central'... Rolling Eyes

I think they should just say "from ITV News Central"

It would be the simplest thing wouldn't it?

Well not really no. Then you'd be repeating yourself - Here is the news from ITV News Central...?? Still doesn't sound right. Granada said yesterday something along the lines of "This is ITV News from Granada Reports" - Granada Reports being the name of the show under the strap line ITV News in the titles. Therefore, why can't Central say "This is ITV News from Central" - in the same way Granada wouldn't say "This is ITV News in Granada Reports".

Which idiot Mad said they didn't like "from Central" - that sounds awesome, that being the old name of the regional station? They used to say in the Central idents from 1996-1999 "Time now for the latest news from Central". Surely it can be used again and still incorporate "ITV News". "In Central" sounds weird... Exclamation

Yep even "from Central" sounds good. In fact, much better. I think they may change the "in Central" soon. - I'd like to hope so anyway.

Not from what they said on FB in response to my message.

I suggested changing the script to 'ITV News from Central'

"Welcome to ITV News, this is Central!" Not bad, although sounds more like a continuity announcement altho it sounds better than " in Central".

Can they not use "This is ITV News for the Central Region"?
