Aye, it's 3 or 4 stories and the weather still. Nothing else has changed.
Do you need more than 3 or 4 stories though. They're often scraping the barrel by the third anyway.
My favourite part is when they say “there are currently no problems on the roads to report” on news for a region, yet once I’m in my car the local radio talks about at least 4-5 problems; is it a lack of time to cover or a case of not wanting to tell people in one city about travel issues in another?
In fairness local radio tends to rely more on people phoning in to report issues as they only know about the motorway issues through the cameras of the Highways Agency - anything else is either a major accident or incident or knock-on that's been picked up elsewhere or has been phoned in. And the radio can cut in at any time to say we've just been informed of a three car pile up on the A4123, road is blocked. traffic queuing back to Burnt Tree, please avoid the area. Whereas TV can't do that.
