Yes, it is actually possible to enjoy a news bulletin

I really enjoyed the 5.30pm news on Radio Four today. “Enjoy” is not a verb normally associated with listening to news bulletins, admittedly. But Ben Maeder read it. Who he? The West Cumbrian reporter for BBC Radio Cumbria. He read the news beautifully, kicking off “Accent week” on PM. Each day they’ll be featuring a newsreader with an accent not normally associated with the PM news.

Presumably they won’t have a Nord Iron accent featured, because they normally do have the Belfast tones of the superb Kathy Clugson.

Oh, and they won’t presumably has a Scots accent featured because they normally do have the Scots tones of marvellous Susan Rae.
