    Hi everybody,

    in the last weeks we have seen a lot of anchor rotation – does anyone know about a regular anchor schedule in the future? Or anything more about anchors at SKY News?

    Thanks

    Just wondering what the situation is with regards some of the line-up.

    The latest brochure we got at the Sky News Ireland press conference states that Greg and Lorna are the Sunrise presenters. Have to say I’m happy about that.

    But does that mean that Emma is now without a regular role and will become one of the part-time presenters on weekend Sunrise and on the 8pm – midnight Monday to Friday? Strange because when she joined they made a big issue out of it.

    Strange because the brochure states Viv, Allan and Juliette are the presenters of the 8pm-midnight – no mention of Chris Roberts.

    Also notice Juliette hasn’t done much more than weekends and business shifts in recent weeks.

    Lisa Aziz has been presenting Thursday/Friday for Kay quite a bit recently too.

    It would seem they don’t have any shortage of females with Karin, Paula and Sheila also in the mix. Presumably with all of these being new or fairly new Mums they’re happy with that? And Steve Dixon, David Foster and Allan King are also presenting news shifts Monday-Friday

    Well, it obviously didn’t work out how they would have liked it to. She’s still young and perhaps a while on some of the less high profile shifts will tone her skills?

    Strange because the brochure states Viv, Allan and Juliette are the presenters of the 8pm-midnight – no mention of Chris Roberts.

    Perhaps those 3 are the permanent staffers?

    But it is strange about Chris Roberts; I could be wrong but I reckon over the last 2 weeks he has been on every weekday evening shift.

    Also notice Juliette hasn’t done much more than weekends and business shifts in recent weeks.

    Well when Michael Wilson’s away they need somebody to cover, and that’s Juliette and David Foster – what more can be said on that?

    Staff rotas change you know. People are redeployed, on leave, sick. Let’s face it, in the fast-paced world of 24-hour rolling news it is not surprising that things are constantly changing, including the rotation of anchors. I hope this draws a line under the matter.

    Hi; this week Monday and Tuesday was Chris and Paula;;Wed was Chris and Sheila;;Thursday was Chris and Viv ,

    However Allan and Paula replaced Anna and Jeremy on live @5 on Wed.

    Yes,Juliette Foster i have not seen on 8pm-0000 for ages–probably on business.,

    But on another note;you know the way the business news comes live from the London Stock Exchange-well is the studio actually in the stock exchange or is it in Millwall studio??

    Surely it is in the Stock Exchange. Sky News couldn’t lie about a thing like that, could they! Perish the notion.
