Hi

I'm interested to know what times presenters actually work. Not specific presenters, but times for the programmes. ie what time do the Sunrise presenters arrive for work, and at what time do they leave each day?

If anyone has any ideas for the times covering all programmes, I'd be interested to know.

Thank you,



Matt

(great site by the way)

Just a guess for afternoon slot 1-5 (Kay)



I'd guess she needs to be in at least 2 hours before air so 10 maybe 10.30 then i'd guess she'd be able to leave pretty much straight after her slot has finished so maybe 5.15-5.30.

As i say just a guess so no flaming guys if i don't get it right, after all i'm not perfect, coloro:redyetcolorc but i'm working on it.

As I have mentioned in another topic, a neighbour of mine leaves home about 2 hours before they're due on air and is usually home again within an hour of coming off air. So, I would guess, they arrive 1 hour 45 minutes ahead of going live and leave almost immediately after coming off air.

Im nearly positive that ppl do 3hrs prep work and 4hrs presenting,the majority.



so martin and julie/sheila would start at 7am



kay and mark at 10am



anna and jeremy at 1pm,as they rewrite their script and it is only 3 hrs presenting.

Hope this helps-John

Who exactly is your neighbour?

What about the sports presenters, how long before they are on air do they have to be in?
