Worser News Presenters? , thats easy.

Phil Gayle of ITV, He's sounds constantly drunk with that lazy loud droal of his.

Peter Sissons, clearly a man not built for dealing with breaking news. We all remember the whole Queen Mother incident, and he's been bumbling away ever since.

Can't think of anyone terrible on Sky, unless you count Anne Widdercombe's one week stint on Littlejohn. Maybe Alan King could be replaced or become a Reporter, nothing against him, he's voice just sends me to zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Hi, you asked about Michael Wilson too...last seen doing business reports and looking very relaxed.

Sky like Kay. They wouldn't have given her the "interview" with whatserface with the you-couldn't-make-it-up-surname who bonked Becks otherwise (as someone else has said). That got more viewers than just about anything on Sky. Sad but troo fact re wot the Brit public wants to watch.

Btw did anyone else see how much dosh Sky NEWS loses each year? News is always a loss leader but it's sad. It means no 'expensive' (world?) coverage - or limited coverage. Pity. If the leetle old grey cells remember rightly it's something like 7-10mill p.a. Saw it in an article about the launch of an English language version of Al Jazeera ie the bloke that owns that channel's got more money than sense as everyone knows news doesn't make money.

Maybe they pay the presenters too much?!! )
