One reader believes local programmes would benefit from a shake-up. What do you think?

I would be very interested to hear from other readers as to their views on the standard of local programmes on BBC1 and Radio Norfolk.

I feel programmes, such as Look East, have become dated and stale and urgently need a new format and new presenters. It seems the current two main presenters have become complacent over the years and the constant insistence of one of the presenters to put on a false laugh after every article (even when the article is not funny) is incredibly annoying.

Why can’t a different couple present the programme every now and then? It seems that once you become a presenter/reporter at the local BBC you have a job for life no matter how good you are. Nice work if you can get it.

Radio Norfolk once had an excellent phone-in discussion on a different topic at 9am each weekday morning. Here again, the programme has now become boringly predictable, politically correct and uninteresting.

Please BBC, can we have some new presenters who will brighten up the local programmes and make them interesting again.
