Breaking news in Yorkshire! Calendar presenter, Christine Talbot was born on this day in 1969. The broadcaster has been a fixture on our screens since she joined Yorkshire TV in 1994 as a Calendar reporter. She then hosted the documentary series “Tonight” in the late ’90s, before being promoted to anchor the main 6pm show in 2001, alongside Duncan Wood.
