As Paul Barry continues to recover from his cycling accident, veteran journalist Janine Perrett will be taking the lead on next Monday’s episode.
On this week’s episode, Jeremy Fernandez was at the helm, but next week’s honour will be bestowed upon Janine Perrett, as announced by Media Watch on Twitter.
These temporary fill-ins come after Paul Barry was knocked down by a driver on his bicycle on his way to work. He is expected to be off hosting duties for a further three weeks.
When Jeremy Fernandez was announced as his fill-in this past week, Media Watch stated,
“We are pleased to announce that Jeremy Fernandez will be presenting Media Watch this week while we find a longer term fill in.”
It is unclear at this stage whether Perrett is that longer term fill in, or whether her hosting stint will also be one episode. James Valentine could be another contender, who filled in for Barry on Media Bites this week.
