BBC News Fix

  • BBC News Presenter Count 2015: January-June: BBC Newsnight

    Hi once again, the numbers are not too surprising for Newsnight for this half of the year:

    1. Evan Davis - 70

    2. Kirsty Wark - 29

    3. Emily Maitlis - 25

    4. Laura Kuenssberg - 9

    5. James O'Brien - 4

    After finding the replacement for Jeremy Paxman, Evan Davis, he has been presenting the program quite a lot since his hiring. He has appeared 70 times, including quite a few times during the run up to the Election.

    Days were allocated to presenters before Evan joined the team, but since then, it is sort of random choice as to who you could see presenting Newsnight each night. Evan seems to do the show occasionally on Tuesdays but could appear on a Friday.

    Kirsty comes second with her appearance quite a lot on a Friday with 29 appearances.

    Emily Maitlis has now been focusing more on Newsnight then the BBC News Channel and has appeared on the progeam 25 times now.

    Laura Kuenssberg seems to have found her feet since her move back to the BBC and the producer seems to use Laura as presenter as a last resort on the show.

    James O'Brien is drifted in to present if neither of the 4 current presenters are available.
