From looking at the ITV news website, I'm guessing there are 3 weather hubs on a weekend covering all regions

Emma Jesson did Granada, Yorkshire x 2, Tyne Tees and Border

Helen Plint did Central x 2 and Wales

Philippa Drew did Meridian x 2 and Westcountry x 2

Where does Anglia, London and Channel fit in with this, there are no videos on their sites, and which regions are the 'hubs' based in (Emma Jesson will be at Granada)

Think Channel do their own and London use the ITV National presenters. Not sure about Anglia.

London would've had Helen Plint.

Bit of an odd occurrence off the end of the regional news just now on BBC1, looks like they tried to play a pre-recorded weather by John Hammond before cutting to what I assume was a live forecast by John.


I saw that too, was it because the News Channel is the sustaining service, and they were coincidently also showing a recorded forecast that started at exactly the same time as the network BBC 1 one ? The regions opted back to network, before Ericsson had switched away from the NC ?

Because of the new contract for weather forecasting provision the BBC moving from the Met Office to Meteogroup?

Meteogroup have their own graphics systems, and its possible the current system the BBC use, is in someway tied in with the Met Office.
