Sky generally have the best rolling news operation - unlike BBC or ITV because their bulitins, i.e. Breakfast, Six O'clock News, the Evening News, News at 10.30 are seen as more important, whereas Sky doesn't have any bulitins like those mentioned.

ITV News Channel - they are strong on regionality. Although the Beeb has access to local news rooms, ITV uses theirs better.






Those bulletins are seen as more important by the people who watch them. Conversely, Sky News is more important to those who watch it.

I think the only reason that ITV use their regions so much is because it is a resource that is already available. I don't think that they use the regions "better", rather they rely on them to help fill air time.



I'm not a great watcher of regional news, but I'm of the opinion that BBC does it better than ITV, on the whole.

It's a gripe of many people on these forums and I'm going to take this opportunity to air it again. Sky could have programmes such as the BBC1 main bullietins, if they chose to. Indeed, I believe that they should have those peak, hard hitting bulletins.

I meant that within BBC News/ITV News those bulitins ARE more important - eg. on the BBC Six O'Clock News - they would have a live OB from a correspondant first - then they would go to N24.

Eg. for ITV News - the NC goes to another studio, (CSO/London) to rehearse for the Evening News etc.

Whereas Sky News doesn't have any focused news -roundup bulitins. They could - they could also do analysis - but they don't. They focus their enery on one operation - BBC/ITV don't.

Yes I did misunderstand your previous point, apologies.

It does bring up the question of what happens when Sky begin producing Five News!

No probs mate!

I imagine when Sky begin producing the news for Five - there will be a dedicated team to actually produce Five News, but they will still use the same materials - newsgatherers etc.

Well they will have their own team of producers and reporters. They will share correspondents by all accounts.

This thread has moved away from the original topic! Let's get back to it. Emma Crosby would struggle to work on local radio. It's beyond me how she gets away with all the fluffs. And her ad-libs are desperately dull, while they are such good value when other presenters do their little fillers. Maybe she could move into admin or something, but get her out of the studio. Vote her off in the "big brother" poll!

Or maybe you should just leave it to experienced Sky bosses to know who's good enough and who isn't...

I like Emma Crosby. My Dad comes in from work and flicks on CNBC and I thought she was amazing at CNBC and I think she is great at Sky too.

There's no accounting for taste, that's all I can say.
