I was just wondering if anyone has ever e-mailed any of the presenters of Sky News and received a reply? If so, what address did you use to contact them?

Thanks.

One of the replies, I emailed them one night and when I came home from work the next day the reply was there waiting for me, and the other reply took a couple of weeks to get after I sent the original email. It really depends on who you send it to. Some of the presenters are on all the time and others are only on from time to time.

When he returned from a long illness I sent an email to Bob Friend at the normal sky news address and a few weeks later I received a reply from him thanking me.

I e-mailed Kay after she asked a question, she replied and thanked me within a minute. You could hear her tapping away at the keyboard when Mark was doing his link.

The presenters are trained to talk and listen at the same time. Writing a note or an e-mail while still being aware of what's going on around them comes naturally to them.

Well, if the current state of these forums represents Sky's viewers, then typical emails will probably be;



"Are you single?"

"I love you."

"You're the bestest Sky News presenter eva!"

"You're so sexy, all the other girls at Sky are crap."

"What underwear are you wearing?"



Etc.

Tee hee - now that was something worth discussing. Non of this "hair, blouse and skirt" malarky.



Those were the days, eh?

I e-mailed Martin once when he made a real hash of pronouncing the name Bouygues (it's pronounced "Bweeg") in some business headlines - it's the leading French construction company, which he might not have known, which also owns France's leading channel, TF1, which I reckon he should know. Anyway, he wrote back within seconds to say he'd been rehearsing it all morning, was dreading saying it, then blew it when the time came. Curiously, he didn't re-read the item the rest of the morning!

Without having received a reply, I also mark up a minor victory over the Queen Mother's funeral. In the early minutes of coverage by the presenters, the term "casket" was used, but this then became "coffin". I claim full responsibility for this shift, resulting from an e-mail I sent in entitled "a-tisket a-tasket" in which I pointed out that "casket" was American usage.
