In sure it will stay, as they are investing in new ways of news reading and presenting.

Are there some new reporters and presenters on News beat at the moment?

Chris Smith is on a video journalism course at the moment, could that be one of the new ways?

Also, yes, a few new names have popped up on Newsbeat over the last few months. Think the newbies include Stephan Powell (legend), Cat Collins, Anna Collinson and James Waterhouse (all of the names I can think of that I hadn't heard until recently).

Also Nesta McGregor and Steffan Powell read the afternoon news on Friday??

As stated above, Chris Smith has been on a video journalism course in Leicester for the past couple of weeks and will return on Monday 28 July so Nesta and Steffan have only been sub newsreaders. Frankie McCamley read the news from 1330-1630 yesterday as Steve Holden (main stand-in) was preparing for a big outside bulletin at 1745. I've actually always wondered how they select the newsreaders for the 1330 bulletin and overnight duties. Chris Moyles asked Maddie Lown that question a few years ago and she said it fell to 'whoever was last in the office as the rest were off to lunch'!

I've noticed over the past couple of weeks that whoever does do the 1330 bulletin also does the 2200 bulletin and weekend news. Anna Collinson enjoyed that role last week.

What are the full Newsbeat times of the day? And which are different on 1xtra?

For a weekday I'm pretty sure it's

06:30, 07:00, 07:30, 08:00, 08:30, 09:30, 10:30, 11:30, 12:45, 13:30, 14:30, 15:30, 16:30, 17:00, 17:45, 22:00

1Xtra's the same although I don't think they run a bulletin at 06:30.

1xtra has a 6am bulletin during the week

Yes, but this is not a sign of cutbacks this is because Nomia was a reporter at a scene- which Newsbeat was reporting on. And Tulip Mazumdar is the BBC News Global Health Reporter and with the big stories in Africa she was

Reporting (I even saw her lots on BBC World News).
