A Change in the Weather

The BBC is to cancel its contract with the Met Office to supply the weather forecasts on radio and TV.

 

Change in the Weather

 

The BBC will take its forecasts from a Dutch company, MeteoGroup, but will retain some of the existing presenters.

I read it in the Daily Mail.

 

Good to hear Carol Kirkwood will still be around. She makes my morning Smiley

 

MeteoGroup already provide forecasts for Sky News and Channel 4.

Oddly enough its Carol Kirkwood I personally think should go! She's old, wrinkly, not exactly very pretty anymore...

We've got far hotter weather presenters these days.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

I don't spend all my time sat in front of the TV so Carol is the only female forecaster I see.

She is employed by the BBC so will be staying on in the new setup.

Re: A Change in the Weather

The BBC hard at work using licence payer funds to import foreign services instead of using UK based services. Rather a fit of pique to "punish" the politicians who dared to investigate the Beeb's operation.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.
