Not sure why Shaun Ley's presenting tonight... he's heavily stumbling and pausing excessively in almost every sentence, and it's kinda difficult to listen to a news bulletin when you have so many pauses and stumbles like that, as you won't get the gist of the story.
Earlier on the News at Five, he had a large tongue tie over a sentence in the bottom of hour headlines, and just now while doing a live interview to a journalist, he took a long pause in the middle of the sentence to take breath... perhaps a bit of flu or something?
IMO, if presenters are feeling quite significantly under the weather, they shouldn't present the bulletins and instead delegate to someone else who is available, because it's just so hard to watch when you're seeing the presenter struggling with what seems to be more and more like a bout of flu live.
Yes. I happened to have that channel on this afternoon and noticed he was stumbling and pausing during sentences.
I've never seen him before, as I normally prefer to watch Sky News and CNN. But this guy was awful this afternoon.
It is so distracting and makes the viewer feel uncomfortable and is awkward to watch.
