The Newsreader & Reporter Thread
This thread was initially created to cover the story of Anna Ford losing her voice and then covered stories such as the Iraq War with reporters on and off location.
Anna Ford had struggled to be heard throughout, with her voice completely going at some points. After her voice seriously faultered for a second time, Sophie Raworth (already in the newsroom) came to the rescue and took over the One from the headline re-cap at around 1318. No time for make-up either!
On the same day, Bill Turnbill was doing the Six as a replacement for George.
Slowly the thread evolved into a thread about shift patterns, which is what it is now aimed at.
It seemed to make sense to me to rename this thread
The Newsreader Thread
It should keep the forum a bit tidier if all posts relating to
Changes of usual presenters
Presenters standing up (a popular one..)
Main anchors on loction.
Additional things newsreaders must do while on air.
I'm sure I will be adding to this list, and PM me if you can think of any obvious things I have missed off!
