I grew up in Tyne Tees land, and wasn’t fortunate enough to be able to pick up any neighbouring regions. The first glance I saw of another region was YTV, and I was shocked by the lack of IVC or even a female announcer in that era.
Of course, thanks to the web I’ve now seen presentation for all regions and it is fascinating to compare and contrast their on-air image and branding. It wouldn’t be fair to pick a favourite but of course I have a soft spot for the region I grew up in.
