Alastair Stewart joined ITN in 1980 and has been a news anchor since 1984. He's now been demoted to the weekday lunchtime slot where he will join a roster of other news presenters.

This is nothing more than ageism, as ITV has promoted younger presenters like Tom Bradby to News At Ten. What a disgraceful way to treat an ITN stalwart.

Alastair Stewart has received heaps of messages from supporters.

Since taking over News at Ten last month, Tom Bradby has increased viewing figures by more than 2 million, overtaking the BBC's Ten O'Clock News.

I've actually warmed to Tom Bradby, but I do miss Alastair Stewart at teatimes.

I've always preferred ITV News, some of the presenters are way better than the BBC's. There are several ex-ITV News presenters I have always been fond of:

Nick Owen, Trevor McDonald, John Suchet and the late Carol Barnes.

Trevor McDonald was indeed a Character but at the end of the day they are all autocue parrots.


It's all fake!!!
