Ben Mundy is presenting his last Newsbeat this afternoon. Sounds like he's been promoted to an off air role or to wider BBC News. Christian Hewgill would be a good replacement for the main 15 min programmes/afternoon bullitens...

Yup. He's been on since at least 2010 reading the weekend bullitens/ deputising on the main programme and weekday bullitens. No doubt we'll be hearing more Christian Hewgill and Calum Leslie from now on

Think something like 4 years as main daytime presenter of the main programme of newsbeat Hewgill Leslie probably will serve for the main show but probably see some new newsbeat presenters. Think with movement of BBC News departments in the long run movement of some presenters and reporters out of BBC. As different programme is created see some new newsbeat presenters coming.

Chris Smith and Tina Deheley both finished as the main daytime anchors in 2018 when Greg and Grimmy swapped shows, so it's been 4 years.. Chris Smith was on the main programme/afternoons for many years before - it was Ben Munday who announced when Scott was being moved off drive and onto lunch

He’s presented on the News Channel before, wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up on there in a more permanent capacity 

He's going into news management according to Steve Holden - his bio says deputy editor.

She's done bullitens before, and she's been doing the Asian Network afternoon bullitens when they split them last year. I assume that means that AN will no longer have the seperate bullitens, and ALL of them will be simulcast again?
