Ha! I take it it's the way the reporter turns to "look" at the newsreader? I've never seen anything like that before.
Nor me but I quite liked it, think it works well.... I'm probably alone in that though.
I imagine it's a bit of a faff to do in practice - to get each reporter to look in the correct angle and turn at the correct time
Wasn't there a BBC region which had a set where the two presenters were sitting facing each other either side of a desk? Looked really odd and must have been a nightmare to shoot
