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.

Charlene gave out the wrong website address at 3:00 - she said itv.com/london rather than"/news"


I noticed a couple of ITV News London straps on the Evening News the other day.


Another blunder last night with her sign off - ''from all the London team''

Bring back Ranvir!

Technically not incorrect, but if anyone should be bought back it has to be Alastair. IMO he is the obvious choice to be first choice cover for Mary.

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.

You keep telling yourself that.

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)

I think the word "blunder" is so over-used these days.........
