Good for news

Really enjoy the Newscasts and especially when the hosts let their guard down a little and show they’re human!
It’s part of my morning routine to catch up whilst walking the pup but could I ask that Danny Dyers sweary “no-one’s got a ….” is dropped now.

Too short!

Jane Garvey’s version of Newscast seemed way shorter than usual! She is such a brilliant presenter. Adam is SO professional too, I’m happy with either. Reliable, warm, human both. Broadcasting at it’s quintessential best.

New intro

Shame you have chosen two of the most disliked females of today to comment. Doubt it’s going down well.
