I seem to recall a facility, maybe radio, in Bradford City Hall, though to be fair this was some time ago....and I'm not sure I want to remember how much time ago!

Yes that’s where it was before it moved to be a living exhibit in the then revamped National Media Museum.

I recall Radio Leeds used to broadcast some shows from Bradford to show they weren’t just all about Leeds

Yes they did even from City Hall, all of the programming for the Asian Community for example and the Breakfast Show at one time was double headed with a presenter in Bradford and one in Leeds.

For a while that Bradford based presenter was Jon Hill, who went on to report for Calendar. I don't think I'm making this up but after the breakfast show from Bradford he would co present the lunchtime news from the Halifax studio.

Once the studio at the museum opened it seemed like as many programmes came from there than from Leeds at one point. That may have been while Radio York was getting a refit and were camping out at Leeds.

Funnily enough once Sanjiv Buttoo arrived as Managing Editor they re-established a basic facility in Bradford. Several years earlier he had been based out of City Hall and then the Museum as Asian Affairs Producer and presenter before moving to the Asian Network.

Duncan Wood has been off our screens for quite a while now, and I don’t think there has been a mention on air of why. I hope him and his family are keeping well.

He appeared that first week when they went single headed and they made a lot of the fact that out of him and Christine, one would be in the studio, and one working from home across the week, and then he hasn’t been seen since.

I just checked his Twitter and he has not posted or retweeted anything since 31st March

It could just be that plans have changed as the virus situation has developed. I think the original idea was for him and Christine to alternate who was in the studio and who was at home, which as the advice developed is perhaps not the right approach to reducing risk.

Is Look Leeds still two headed?

Noticed the camera is in a very odd locked off position for this evening's Look Hull by the way. We're just having a selection of mid-close and mid shots to Shirley Henry (not that I personally mind the closer shots!).

No it’s been single headed since the start of the pandemic with either Phil Bodmer or Amy Garcia presenting the main programme mostly.

Unless i imagined it the lower thirds also animate now a bit jittery compared to the real deal but it’s definitely animating.

A suitably qualified guest to discuss a news story of regional importance then. I'm sure radiolistener would have preferred Darren Lethem, but they got Tony instead.
