Words and phrases Samuel’s Persiflage #10

Capital Radio News Holiday?

November 13th, 2006 at 07:38pm

That was a tad odd…the 2CA/2CC newsroom had both the morning and afternoon newsreaders missing in action today…firstly Jane Turner wasn’t there, and Kris McKenzie was filling in (no complaints from me…I think Kris does a great job), and then Francis Keeny (or however his name is spelled) was absent, with panel operator and other jobs extraordinaire Duncan McRae filling in.

I suspect that Jane and Francis have taken leave at the same time…and that would explain why WIN News’ James Creegan Goodwin (Creegan left for Sydney a long time ago…don’t know why I thought of his name instead of James Goodwin) was presenting Sunday morning news on 2CC and 2CA…but it just seems a bit odd that both people would disappear at the same time.

I wonder how long it will be until we hear from Jane or Francis again?

    Jane Turner is a gem.
    She has a genuine ‘unisex’ voice, which is clear and concise.

    I agree Cynic…one of the best newsreaders to grace Canberra’s airwaves!

    Is Jane related to Tina? She also has a great “unisex” voice!

    I went to uni but I never had sex. I did get a really bad headjob from a unisex hairdresser that made me look like a lego man with a perm.

    From newsreaders to hairdressers in four comments…that must be a record!

    I don’t know Loki…maybe it runs in the family.

    Was the salon unisex or was the stylist a she-male, Roger? My missus is a hairdresser and hasn’t given me a bad headjob yet. Won’t do cats, though, unfortunately.

    I agree Samuel … a very odd juxtaposition (regarding newsreaders to hairdressers – I still don’t know if Tina is related to Jane).

  • 8. Samuel  |  November 15th, 2006 at 10:02 pm

    Neither do I…but I know that Jane is back from leave, and Duncan McRae is still filling in for Francis Keenie (that spelling looks like it could be correct) who will return on Monday.
