Doesn't Gavin Grey still do shifts on World? His last shift on the news channel was in 2016 as I recall. I also believed he did work for an Australian Breakfast show from the London end, don't know if he still does that.

Liz Pike is now a self employed Coach and Media Trainer. It says on her LinkedIn page she left the BBC in 2010, but essentially she left News 24 in 2006 (just disappeared entirely IIRC), then spent 4 years training new BBC juniors.

I spotted her very recently at a broadcast/media trade show in London, so she's still involved (perhaps)

Can't find anything much at all about Lindsey Brancher. The most recent with any substantial information is 10 years old: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1200078/Former-BBC-presenter-landed-600-000-court-failed-rent-row-Cannes-villa.html

Not been on World in a while but still presents on Australian TV as a Royal Correspondent- Here's a clip from last week

Sheena Mcdonald had a serious accident in 1999 which took a long while to recover from. It pretty much ended her TV career

Whatever happened to......

A couple of BBC newsreaders who were big in the 1980's and then seemed to vanish overnight;

Frances Coverdale - always wondered what became of her. Obviously highly regarded as she was reading the main 9pm BBC bulletin way back in 1982 and I think I recall her doing BBC News Afternoon too. I think she did this for about 4 or 5 years.[/i]



Debbie Rix - who was best known in the early days of BBC Breakfast Time but if I recall also later did a brief stint on ITV's Game For A Laugh with Jeremy Beadle in the mid 80's. (Here from 2m54s)
