    General thread for day-to-day discussions on ITV/ITN News.

    A New Topic should be created in the first instance. Often most comments don’t warrant a new thread.

    This thread is mainly for general discussions, day-to-day operations, graphic tweaks, correspondents locations, up-and-coming programmes, and other pieces of information.

    The ITV News looks great in widescreen on the ‘coming up’ promos on the Lunchtime and Nightly news. Is their a particular reason as to why they won’t switch to widescreen?

    Ah, I thought it was, she seems to have a new hair style.

    Becky Mantin suffered a head injury after a surfing accident.

    ITV weathergirl Becky Mantin was in hospital last night having brain scans after a horrific surfing accident.

    The 25-year-old had cracked her head open on a surfboard.

    Becky was treated in hospital but then collapsed, unable to move, a week later. She was rushed to hospital for brain scans.

    Get well soon Becky – I had no idea.

    So this is why Jo Blythe has been presenting 7days a week for the past couple of weeks or so. I take it Martin Davies is doing other work? What happened to Sian Loyld I rarely see her now.

    Martin has been forecasting since Saturday or Sunday, with Sian on duty today. Get well soon, Becky.

    They, along with Jonathan Wills were made redundant, I think.

    Just to let the mod/editors of TV Newsroom know that, Harry Smith and Helen Wright are no longer reporters for ITV News. They were axed/paid off not long back.

    You seem very quick to add Natasha Kerplunk to the fiveNews section..

    and you still haven’t added Phil Gayle to the ITV Morning News, in presenters in the ITV News section.

    Thanks.

    I’ve noticed the EPG (sky) now as the ITV News headlines and Regional News listed at 11:10 and 11:15, Before it was ‘This Morning’ from 10:30 – 12:30.

    I was just going through some new year recordings and found a clip of Mark Austin with a large hole in his stomach

    EDIT: Oh, I’ve just realised why the scripts on ITV News now end with a sheet of dark red paper.
    Mark is probably holding a sheet of white paper in the image above, and the green floor is shinning up on to the paper causing it to display part of the backdrop (CSO style)

    Why isn’t the lives and reports from Washington in Widescreen?

    I noticed when Trevor was teasting NaT from Washington last week, the shot was in 14:9. yet the news at ten was in 16:9. John Irvine and Bill Neely’s reports were also in 14:9.

    Did anyone else think the ending to Richard Pallots report on the use of autotuning in the x factor was really funny? He signed of in the usual way but his voice had been altered so it was really squeaky.
    Itv news is the best, I was brought up in the Mark Austin and Mary Nightingale era and its still as good as ever.

    Just wondering are you going to update the Itv reporters page any time soon?
