Kate Silverton

I think the BBC News presenter Kate Silverton is much underused. You normally only get to see her on News 24... and as we don't properly have Freeview (we have a digibox but the signal isn't great), she only appears when covering someone on the breakfast slot. Yesterday was a rare treat for me, I was up early enough to see BBC News 24 on BBC 1 and she was presenting it. Bliss.

She comes across with genuine warmth and a pleasant nature when presenting, although there was a recent story in the press over a co-presenter quitting within a week of working with her. She's pretty smart too as she has a degree in psychology and has studied Arabic and middle eastern politics. Interesting CV. I personally much prefer her to Natasha Kaplinsky.
Below are two clips of Ms Silverton (one from a humorous moment on BBC Breakfast and the other featuring her role as Moneypenny in the BBC Newsreaders 007 Children in Need

Update as of 17th November:

It seems I am not alone in this. Ms Silverton presented BBC Breakfast this morning and since then, by what I'm sure is no coincidence, I have had about half a dozen hits from Google searches... simply with her name in the title. The BBC must have read my blog and surrendered to my will! Such is my influence.

Update as of 9th January:

OK fellas, this is crazy. This is by far the most visited entry on my blog. As attractive as the fair Ms Silverton may be... I'd sure appreciate it if you'd be kind enough to browse the other stuff. Do you know I'm still getting about 10 hits a day purely on the search term "Kate Silverton" alone? This is two months from when I originally posted this, I wonder how much longer it will carry on?

In all seriousness though, you are welcome to browse by to this page as often as you wish. Have a flick through while you are here though.

    Hi Nick,

    I know you posted this a while ago, but just to let you know you are not alone in your appreciation of Kate Silverton. I've posted about her today - it's rare to find an attractive and intelligent newsreader these days. All too often they seem to be either one or the other!
