    There are rumours circulating that Moira Stuart may leave the BBC (whether these are true or not I don’t know).

    If she does leave BBC, do you think she will move to another news broadcaster and would she be welcome on Sky News?

    I for one would quite like to see her on Sky News, she would add a greater level of authority in the news reading.

    I cant really see Moria doing a live 2way.

    But it would be nice to see her there.

    It would be a crime if she was forced out. She’s the only presenter I remember from a young age, I always thought her voice reminded me of a bumble bee (immature I know). She looks ageless and BBC Breakfast wouldn’t be the same without her.

    I hope its not true, and worse still that terrible rumour that Sophie Raeworth might take over from Fiona Bruce on the Ten.

    I dunno, I think Moira would be alright on interviews, the are other presenters around who would be and are less competant/adequate.

    Yeah of course she would. She’s been working in journalism since 1981, and presented both the Six and Nine O’clock News throughout the 80s and 90s, and she’s never gone down that sexy root which most female presenters do these days.

    I think she is under used at the BBC, I know they have these new regulations about qualified journalists presenting main news or something, but her experience is greater than a lot of the drippy twits they insist on using.

    Well Kaplinsky isn’t qualified, after graduating with an English degree she did one of those crash course tv presenting courses for ?500, I don’t think she’s ever fielded a single OB yet, its always been about studio presenting with her.

    Moira Stuart has been presenting the news on the BBC for as long as I can remember and she is good at her job. She must of done something right, or indeed wrong to have managed to get where she is today. It shouldn’t matter whether she is fully qualified or not as a journalist as to whether she gets to read the news or not on TV. She’s been doing it for long enough. Her experience should get her on presenting the news. I was reading about Natasha Kaplinsky in the newspaper at the weekend. I didn’t realise she’s only 32. I thought she was older than that. These two are both capable of reading the news, and do a good job of it, and that is all that counts.

    But Moria has the dignity lol. Wouldn’t catch her greasing her way up to Brucie the way Natasha does on Strictly Come Dancing.

    “Brucie baby” live on television.

    As long as Natasha is happy presenting and being on Strictly Come Dancing that is all that matters. How do you know Moira wouldn’t be like that towards Bruce Forsyth on Strictly Come Dancing?

    I liked Natasha when she was on Sky News, although I think she has been tainted somewhat lately with newspaper articles and Strictly Come Dancing, but as long as she reads the news properly and enjoys what she does and does a good job of it, that’s all that matters.

    I did see that programme on Moira’s family origins, very interesting.

    Because Moria’s never gone down that root. She seems really done to earth and without ego which is rare these days.

    Well being journalist does help – but it has never been the only way to become a news presenter. Moira Stuart is a national treasure, and I hope she stays with the BBC or any other channel for as long as she can.

    I could see Moira doing a live 2 way, and while I can’t see her in the middle of the floods and ruin of New Orleans doing a live location broadcast, she is extremely capable of studio presenting.

    As for her being aloof to lighter shows – well she was on a kiddies show in the eighties and is not above making a spectacle of herself with Children In Need.

    But unlike many other news presenters Moira WILL be remembered by many generations to come. After all she is a legend!

    Moira would be good presenting Sky News’ World News Tonight programme.

    While I am a great fan of Moira – I just cannot see her fronting a programme like World News Tonight. Perhaps former Beeb bighitters Peter Sissons, Michael Buerk or Kate Adie would be good for this slot.

    But as Moira – I think she’ll see out her news days with dear old auntie.

    She probably will.
