BBC/ITV South West/Channel Islands News - G Honeybun - 21-08-2022

After 17 years, presenter Sabet Choudhury presented his last edition of BBC Points West on Friday night

Just a short goodbye from Seb, usual banter with weather presenter Ian Fergusson, then a pre-recorded wave goodbye from staff in front of a plasma screen with the message 'Good luck Seb!!'

Looking at the Twitter comments he's not going far Wink

I think he might replace Jonty Messer on ITV News Westcountry, it’s a theory

Late Spotlight bulletin seemed to finish early just now and we had a minute or so of the News Channel.

Do we know who’s replacing Jonty Messer?, it’s been Bob Cruwys & Claire Manning and David Wood lately, a female line up would be nice for a change. Have Victoria Davies with Eli Louise Wringe

Are they waiting for Kylie to come back off maternity leave before making any announcement for Jontys replacement?!

Sabet Choudhury confirmed as Jonty's replacement on ITV News West Country:

Had a funny feeling it would be him to be honest

Since when have Spotlight removed BBC Spotlight and replaced it with BBC News on the on screen graphics when the interview people, always used to say BBC Spotlight under peoples names but seems it’s gone to generic BBC News now?! Is this the same for other BBC regions ?!

I think this is an unintentional change, as I've noticed this happen on Spotlight a few times in the past and it is always corrected after a few days. It's a strange one.

Lovely tribute tonight on BBC Spotlight and throughout the day on BBC Devon to broadcaster Gordon Sparks who passed away this morning following a battle with cancer.
