Would that have been from a packaged news report though?

I wouldn't have thought so. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe ITV (like Sky) use iNews as their live-to-air CMS. If I'm right, the upshot is that a certain code has to be invoked to generate a particular type of strap. (i.e. *cga OPENER or *cga TEN, followed by whatever text needs to go there). It's entirely possible that the London VT was re-purposed and they simply forgot to change the coding.

I suppose that's the price you pay when you cut services to the bone and have presenters hopping between two different shows based in the same studio with near identical music and look. They will get confused sooner or later.

But no doubt a more experienced presenter would have picked up on the mistake before reading it out loud.

I do like Charlene however.

It was hardly a massive mistake, 99% of viewers wouldn't have noticed. What's more, the 'mistake' is technically accurate considering the ITV News team are based in London.

Sounds like you've taken it too seriously.

NONE. OF. THIS. MATTERS.

I've said it before. We all screw up at work. Yes, presenters have many more people to pick up on it and it comes with the territory, but not to the level of one minor incident becoming a prolonged discussion. If Charlene's moved on from it, and being a mature professional, I suspect she has, shouldn't everyone else?

How many viewers do you think noticed then? (Hint - not many)

Did it have any impact whatsoever on the quality of the news bulletin? (Hint - no, it didn't)
