It's an end of an era, in a way. Kay has been doing the afternoon shift for such a long time, certainly since the 2005 revamp though a bit earlier back then with Lunchtime Live. Not sure which slot she had before 2005?


If I recall correctly, prior to 2005, she did the 2-5 shift.

Bloody hell... this just proves you can polish a turd! Shocked

The fact that background exists and the chose to use the random stripy blue thing says a lot about the decisions being made there... would look so much better and add some much needed consistency. Add a large desk to it and you’ll have a more respectable studio for an international broadcaster.

Maybe an unpopular opinion but I regret that Sarah Hewson did not pick up Mon-Thu afternoons, her delivery and tone on Fridays is brilliant. I'm not quite too sure why afternoon slots have become slightly geared to "and finally..." stories on a few news channels now but at least when she does them, her tone is less "wow that's amazing!" with no attempts at cheap gags, it's more calm and succinct (even on the "and finallys"). I don't watch afternoons much but when it's on in the office, it's easier to pay attention and feel 'up to date' when something's happening when she's on than when her peers appear in that slot.

How long has that “Brexit Countdown” been in the corner of the screen? Don’t often watch Sky News.

Back in 2001 she did the afternoon shift with Mark Longhurst.

I noticed that Sophy Ridge: The Take now comes from the glass box rather than Studio 6 presented by Sophy rather than a Sunrise presenter.

Good to see that change has been made - the previous format was clunky to put it mildly

Appears Kimberley Leonard is presenting from a CSO in Osterley with a live feed of the Millbank newsroom.

It's not CSO it is the actual Millbank studio

I do sometimes wonder about the on location reporting. Sometimes it looks like the anchor could just be stood in front of a green screen - for example Hong Kong.
