With the itv News Channel closing what will happen with the news presenters they had?
What happens when the likes of Andrea Catherwood and Katie Derham come back from mat leave?
They can’t keep Lucy Alexander just to present London Today for 10 minutes. Andrea Catherwood usually covers for Mary Nighingale and Katie Derham, so they can’t keep Leyla Daybelge. James Mates and Bill Neely normaly cover for Nick Owen and Mark Austin, so why do they need Steve Scott.
I think they will keep Nina Hossain, dont know why but I think they will and Felicity Barr will stay to present the sport on the new nightly news
And the others, Andrew Harvey, Owen Thomas, Chris Rogers, Joyce Ohaja!
i know it sounds a bit selfish,but i breathed a sigh of relief when the itn news ship sank.they had pinched my local presenter charlotte hawkins,and i would have been gutted if she had moved under that desk for good.but at the end of the day anyone worth there salts will move on to bigger and better things.plus i recorded an hour from a few days before they shut down,put it on continuose loop and its like having the real thing.cool.
they may not have any choice in the matter – i don’t think the amount of minutes on air would deter them from working! No doubt they have mortgages to pay, families to support etc. and can’t exactly be turning things down.
Added to the fact that BBC/Sky/Five might not have any vacancies so to speak.
