I received an interesting tip today claiming that Peter Leonard is about to retire and Phil Small is set to take over his position. Whilst I don’t doubt for one moment that Peter Leonard is about ready to retire, I do have a small doubt about Phil Small taking over as anchor, mainly because Phil is very knowledgeable when it comes to sport, and if he were to take over as anchor, somebody would have to fill his void.
If Phil were to take over as anchor, I suppose he could continue to oversee sport, but somebody else would have to do most of the sport reporting. I also have a slight niggling doubt that Phil would want to take over as anchor…I’m sure he’d do a great job, but I’m not convinced that he would want to do it.
If Tony Lynas was still with Win, he would have the anchor job in a flash, but he isn’t there, and Jessica Good is his replacement. I am getting the impression that Jessica’s current fill-in anchor role is a trial for when Peter Leonard does retire, and so far I think she has put in a solid effort and, if Phil Small declines the anchor role, she will most likely get it.
Anyway, thank you to the nice person who sent me the tip, it is most appreciated.
