BBC Look North replaces dismissed presenter
6:12pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
A NEW presenter has been appointed to front BBC Look North in Yorkshire after her predecessor was dismissed.
BBC Three 60 Seconds News presenter and Amy Garcia will co-present the regional programme with Harry Gration from November 25.
The appointment of the 32-year-old, who is on maternity leave after the birth of her first child, follows the dismissal of long-serving presenter Christa Ackroyd in July for what the BBC described as a breach of contract.
Ms Garcia, who was raised in Wakefield, said: "I am absolutely thrilled to be returning to the North and can't wait to share the sofa with the Yorkshire legend that is Harry Gration."
The head of BBC Yorkshire Helen Thomas said: "Amy will be a huge asset to our team of first class journalists on Look North.
"Her natural warmth and empathy, combined with her track record in TV news, really shone out for us."
