Sophy Ridge is pulling in a 5 hour stint from the glass box since 7pm and now on Press Preview.
Not only that, she presented tonight's Pick TV bulletin AND recorded links for a half-hour syndicated programme that's sent to international clients -- all while still in the chair.
The woman's a machine, I tell you!
I take it you were too busy or too famous these days to present the Pick bulletin?
Seriously, Sophy was excellent on tonight's Press Preview with decent guests. Certainly deserving of the dep role for Anna Jones.
I very nearly ended up doing it again on Thursday, actually, such were the logistics... but Gemma Morris from Swipe saved my bacon.
Wednesday was literally a situation of: "We've got to get this on-air. On this of all nights, we can't tell TX to run the backup promo. We've got no presenter or reporter available to do it because they're all flat-out or not in the building, and you've done one or two bits on-screen before, so go ahead and do it yourself."
Sometimes, that's just the way it goes. *shrugs*
I sometimes speak ABOUT my employer, although not FOR them.
