I know we've had this thread before when 2 female presenters present together but today we've had it twice:



Emma and Juliet Errington on Sunrise, Viv and Anjali on 10am - 4 pm, sports by Jackie and weather by Hazel... just thought I'd point that out.....

Has Juliet Errington done any presenting before? She didn't seem that comfortable.

...she has only done night shifts so far! I guess we can forgive her for being a little uncomfortable!

I hope Allan will break this "women circle" soon,...there is too many women in studio at the same time! It scares me!

I thought Emma seemed a bit nervous - maybe she is worried by Juilliets competition.

This has not been done for some time, they have used double shifts at other times so there is a male and female presenter on.

My impression was that Emma was "pulling out all the stops", as she felt pressured by Juliet's apparent newsreading limitations.



Viv and Anjali were an interesting combo....cut glass accents et al



The 'senior' presenters seem to occupy the left [on screen] seat, is this usually so?

I am not sure there are "senior" presenters, the male presenter always sits on the lift when there is a male and a female presenter and the all the male presenters are not "senior" to all the female presenters.

Does it matter if it's two dudes or two chicks, or a dude and a chick?

Snatched a glimpse earlier and saw that Viv and Anna were both presenting Live at Five. What is it with periodic shortages of men at Sky News? Do the ladies gang up and threaten them with their handbags every so often? Or do none of Sky's pool of overnight chaps feel up to the job of sharing the screen with one of the lovely ladies Sky employ?

Allan King is on 20:00 - 00:00, if there is no male presenter for Live at Five he often does a double shift, he has not done that this time though.

Who has been presenting the weather and the sports? I bet it was a woman!



So presumably Juliette Errington and Anjali Rao are no longer graveyard shift presenters?

I think this girl power has taken over in the Newsroom is due to the fact that all Sky News's heavy weights have buggered of to the US! Ian Woods must feel that his patch has been overtaken by the infidels from over the pond........poor Ian.

Talking of girl power, where is Karin Giannone these days? Is she on much? I haven't seen her on for a few weeks at least. Any idea where she's been hiding anyone? <_<

More than a few weeks? I'd say more than a few months would paint a better picture.
