I noticed that many of you Brits,keep lamenting the resignation of Philip Hayton – a total mystery to us here on this side of the pond.
I am surprised that thus far not a word has been written about the imminent move of a stellar presenter- Adrian Finnighan- to CNN , & lucky for you, the one based in London. In my opinion, he`s been one of the best of the best ranking together with such luminaries as L. Doucet, M. Embley, M. Husain, D. Eades,D. Jessel, N. Pillai, & Z. Badawi.
Those have been the ones that made it worthwhile for us to turn on the BBC news & hope to see,benefit & enjoy their dynamic & vibrant news presentation.
I hope that the CNN – London – will be kind enough to also air Adrian`s prorams in America.
Oh give carlyna a break. Adrian Finnighan is one of the better presenters on BBC World. He was also the voice of the station on all their continuity announcements. There are a few threads on his departure over on another message board. Seems to be the general opinion that he will much missed by BBC World viewers.
I’ve been a huge fan of Adrian’s since I first saw him on CBC newsworld. I live in Canada and have BBC world, and just so you know I’m femal. I’m really sad to see him go. He is so good looking. He always made me laugh if I was having a bad day. I don’t get CNNI on Satellite. I have the American one and I don’t even watch it. I hope one day that I’ll be able to get the channel.
I hope that you do well Ade. I wish you all the best at your new job.
hi to all! i am new here. i am also saddened by adrian finnighan’s move to cnn. i was really shocked when, while scanning the channels, i heard his voice when i passed the ccn channel. i have always admired bbc presenters, especially that for us here in the philippines, the bbc presents global news objectively and with no sensationalization. my wife and i always prefer to watch bbc over the other big-name cable news networks.
by the way, i wonder what has happened to ragi omar? has he left bbc?
Does anyone know what time Adrian comes on? I live over in Canada, and I’m trying to find away to watch him through the internet. I’m really confussed by it. It says that I have to pay to use it, and there is no instructions maybe someone out there knows how to go about this.
I’m a huge fan, and I’d like to be able to watch him again.
I saw him on CNNI tonight. He seems to have settled in well. He seems very comfortable & natural. He did a very good interview on the potential impact of bird flu on businesses and how up to 25% of a company’s employees could be off work at any one time if worst case happens.
