Not a newsreader, so already this thread is going off track, but I remember the ITV Weather presenter Martyn Davies had a beard for a brief time before his bosses advised him that he had a beaver on his face.
So did Alex Hill...(remember him?)
Isn't he quite high up in the Met Office these days? I seem to remember him being interviewed on ITV News a few months ago, probably talking about climate change or something weather related.
Also... Just remembered Nick Powell who had a rather tatty beard when he was on Calendar...
Clearly his new bosses at Sky weren't keen on the hirsute look, and it was out with the razor...
