    I noticed a name strap for Anna Jones this morning, not sure if this is a one off, or something that’ll continue.. it was used at 11:15am, after Colin in Jerusalem handed back to London.

    Yes, I noticed this at 04:00 this morning, Lukwesa Burak was presenting World News and her name strap appeared in blue and white.

    It was also used in Sunrise for Steve Dixon, Lorna Dunkley but appeared rather randomly half-way during the bulletin then disappeared after a few seconds.

    A strap like the one’s used by CNN would perhaps be more easier on the eye.

    I wonder if John Ryley is now the head of Sky News. We’ve seen many changes to the on-air look recently, Presenter name straps, Locations in uppercase and on a two way-split screen the studio shot is now on the left.

    Simply put, they are straps across the screen with the name of the presenter on them.

    Basically, their names, as simply put.

    Maybe Sky has finally realised that it is no longer – was it ever? – the leader in rolling news coverage so it is copying the altogether more professional BBC.

    Yeah right. Check this independent link.

    More viewers and now taken Sky’s award, not that these things mean much.

    presenter name straps are hardly exclusive to the BBC. The old ITVNC used them – does that mean that Sky are (post-humously) copying them as well?

    apparently Sky have used them before anyway.

    I still can;t get used to the location straps in capitals though. Hardly groundbreaking but its still a totally unnecessary change.

    that’s old. and for what it’s worth i don’t think news 24 should have won it anyway. sky were in a rocky patch, and werent at their best, but i still dont think news 24 were particularly better. to me it seemed like they needed an excuse to give the award to news 24 being as they had always awarded it to sky.

    anyway, it was just the way you totally disregarded Skt’s achievements in recent years and dismissed them that irked me.

    Old? February 2006. Reckon that’s the latest awards as Sky are keen to trumpet Jeremy Thompson’s.

    I agree with you about awards in general, but viewing figures don’t lie.

    And don’t bother with that old chestnut about Sky not reaching as many homes, it doesn’t wash any more.

    Anyway, how can you take any ‘news’ channel seriously that employs Eamonn Holmes?
