I have just watched Rob Butler give a very tearfull sign off in what I think is his last broadcast.
I also saw Katie Ledger on the ITV News Channel yesterday with Chris Rogers @ 2pm, so I take it she’s staying with ITN, but where are the other going i.e. Rob Butler?
I also noticed that Sky are getting a bit carried away. Yesterday when I pulled up the Sky Guild, the information said that Five News @ 5.30 was presented by Julie E and Five News @ 7 was presented by Kate Sanderson.
Whats going on? I would have thought Sky would have kept the likes of Rob Butler and Katie Ledger!
Some presenters have been kept, some others haven’t. It’s the same across all staff. For example, technical people will be used at Sky as they are familiar with Sky’s set-up, although they will still need to be trained in the new studios, so some bodies from Five may be hired/have been hired.
