ITV Meridian News

I’ve received some news, via email, regarding the ITV Meridian News Region. As you know, Meridian East, South and Thames Valley will form one big ITV Meridian region.

The new presenters for this region will be Fred Dinenage and Sangeeta Bhabra. The rumour around the stalled official announcement is that Ian Axton and Fred Dinenage aren’t best pleased with the decision.

The email goes on to say that, the current morale in the newsroom is “abysmal”. Staff have been restricted from taking annual leave for 3 months now since December. There is still no start date for the new service and the staff that have accepted redundancy are now leaving, so its becoming a skeleton team working each day.

ITV is cutting the number of regional news outputs in England and the Scottish borders from 17 to 9.
