She's been doing a bit at CNN. I'm not too sure if she's still there at the mo.



I have to agree I do like her, she would've been good on Sunrise.

Well, she was on free-lance work at Sky and probably got a better offer at CNN. As I recall she was presenting World News Europe 5 nights a week. Finoula (sp?) Sweeney was on another assignment.

Until June 2002, she was a presenter for the ITN News Channel, from its launch in August 2000. She joined ITN in January 1999 as a presenter on News Direct, the London-wide all-news radio station.

Alison's broadcasting career took off in the New Zealand capital of Wellington, where she was a top rating breakfast radio personality. She also hosted her own mid-morning show on the city's Number One commercial radio station.

SNA should try to get her to front their channel, although I doubt she'd except a demotion.

I really think SNA should become "Sky News Australasia" and broadcast LIVE from Sydney to NZ, Fiji, New Caledonia, PNG, East Timor and Singapore. Of course keep its primary role as Australia's news channel but expand its presence as they're the key nations in the region.

Just saw on Sky News Today that Alison Bell has been arrested on drug charges with James Hewitt.



If its true, who would have thought?

I'm stunned Seriously.



I can't believe this. She must've been duped by this Hewitt character. I hope. Or just falsely accused. Somehow.



She hasn't been on CNN recently, has she?



Ah, now I realise who this Hewitt character is... I'm not British, so I'm not familiar with your "celebs" as much. What the hell was she doing with this sorry person anyway? :angry:
