Noticed in one of the tabloids yesterday,a story about an alleged feud between Kate Garraway and Fiona Phillips, brought about by some focus group research saying that Kate was more popular with viewers than Fiona.

I might be wrong, but I think Reuters provides GMTV with its news.


Actually, recently, ITN won the contract for GMTV News, meaning that it supplies news for all the terrestrial commercial broadcasters! Talk about monopoly


It's hardly a monopoly when they had to bid for it in the first place - other bidders had the chance but evidently weren't good enough. If ITN wins the bids, it wins the bids. Nowt dodgy with that.

Kate Garraway really is fab - although I'd prefer to see her on something other than GMTV, maybe ITV News or something. I loved her on Sky News, one of my fave presenters they've had.

I agree that she's the best GMTV have to offer. I could see her anchoring a relaunched BBC Breakfast alongside Bill Turnbull or Michael Buerk maybe.

Kate Garraway is exactly what BBC Breakfast needs. Although she won't go anywhere else I don't think, she seems to like the lite news/entertainment hybrid style of GMTV.

So there are people out there who think Natasha and Dermot are great! I admit, Natasha is great, but Dermot should be doing something completely different.

However, this is a GMTV thread, there is a Breakfast one where these matters are extensively discussed!
