Christine Talbot has anchored ITV’s Calendar News full-time since 2001 but was already a well-known face in the Yorkshire region after hosting the magazine and lifestyle programme Tonight for four years. She came to Yorkshire from the BBC after cutting her journalistic teeth on local papers and was quickly standing in on Calendar with the legendary Richard Whiteley. Christine has fronted many ITV Yorkshire programmes, including the investigative series Xposed, Silent Killer and Christine’s Big Trip which took her to far flung corners of the world. Christine has twice been short-listed for the Royal Television Society Best Presenter Award.
Christine has hosted the annual Yorkshire Young Achievers Awards and launch for many years.
Duncan Wood has anchored Calendar since May 2003 after joining ITV Yorkshire from Britain’s most watched breakfast show GMTV where he was North of England correspondent and sofa presenter. His career in journalism spans almost 30 years going from cub reporter on his home town paper to his own current affairs series on ITV 1 “Wood You Believe It”.
Duncan has reported from around the world but likes nothing more than telling a good, down to earth tale about real people in real life situations. He’s hosted several prestigious events across Yorkshire, and has hosted the Yorkshire Young Achievers Awards for many years.
