Jane Veitch, from Ashfield House, Lisbellaw, will be contributing to the new Daybreak programme when it begins broadcasting in its new format from Monday, September 6. There is much anticipation for the new breakfast TV programme which will replace GMTV. With Christine Bleakley and Adrian Chiles both switching from the BBC’s One Show to present the new ITV flagship morning programme, there has been strong media attention.
However locally, Jane Veitch will be making her own headlines as she has been selected as one of the local presenters of news bulletins broadcast several times each weekday morning.
A daughter of Ronald and Betty Veitch, Jane is well experienced in the broadcasting world, having worked on many TV documentaries. She has already been presenting news bulletins for GMTV since last November. Until now, she has been presenting news bulletins on Monday and Tuesday mornings however the new format has not been published yet.
Jane is a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin in English and Drama and moved to Belfast where she worked as a research and assistant producer for six years with Michael Beattie Media and Hot Shot Films. She has been involved in many leading TV documentaries over the years, travelling throughout the world on location.
Last year, Jane returned to studies, enrolling at Belfast Metropolitan College to pursue a journalism course and during work experience with Michael MacMillan Media, impressed her employers with her talents. She was offered a job and began broadcasting for them as part of their contract for GMTV last November. She continues to work on documentaries and corporate work as well.
“I have been used to being around cameras but not in front of them, “ she said. “I do like to be in the centre of things but I’ve found its a new skill. You might have to condense all the news stories of the day into a package of just over two minutes. You have to get across the news in a short time.”
Something she will have to get used to is the early morning start, probably around 5.30am to be in the studio in time for the first bulletin.
However she said there will be a team of journalists working on the new programme locally and a lot of the preparatory work will have been done the night before.
“I love this type of work and I’m looking forward to Daybreak,” she said.
Christine Bleakley’s father, Ricky is originally from Enniskillen and later lived in Ballinamallard before moving to Co. Down. Christine’s mother, Mina is originally from Trillick.
