Steven is only including the well known newscasters.
I really think that Paula Middlehurst,David Foster,Karin Giannone and Martin Popplewell should be in his list—but he feels they would get voted out too quickly.
With the current number of presenters included in the poll it would have taken about 3 months to get to a winner if evicting 1 presenter per week. This is the reason why I’ve said that 2 people will be evicted this week.
If there were more presenters this would slow it down even further.
There just aren’t enough members of this forum, that are actively taking part, to sustain such a large vote. In round 1, 6 presenters didn’t receive a single vote. With more presenters it will just becomes too cumbersome.
The reason why the 4 presenters that Newsroom mentioned aren’t included are as follows:
Karin Giannone, Martin Popplewell – They aren’t making enough appearances. They can not be classed as regulars. Martin is doing reporting more than presenting at the moment.
Paula Middlehurst – she doesn’t actually appear as often as you think. She only covers the evening shift when Viv, Sheila, Emma or Juliette aren’t available.
David Foster – similar to Paula, and it is pretty likely he wouldn’t get any where near the final stages (that was a ‘production’ decision)
Juliette Foster was added this week simply because I read another thread and she has more fans than I originally thought. I am open to suggestions on this poll. Should anybody feel that I need to change any part of it then please PM – lets try and keep this thread dedicated to the actual voting!
