    Perhaps because E in Emma is before in the alphabet than S in Steve??

    Elizabeth is right on this one, I think. I can only ever remember male anchor followed by female.

    I can certainly remember occasions in the past year or so when both Juliette Foster and Viv Creegor have had their names announced before their male co-anchor…

    I can also remember back to the days of Selina Scott on Live at Five and she had her name on first.

    Yes, this is by no means the first time this has happened. I noticed it too, but I didn’t really have a problem with it. One thing I was certain of, though, is that there would be a thread here about it

    Maybe they are trying to be PC and are introducing gender equality.

    Go Sky!
