News Biatches

During the Winter and Spring terms of 2004/5 the flagship news programme YSTV Week was mainly produced by Kate Rushworth, Kat Sutton and Lucy Watkins, who quickly acquired the group description of 'The News Biatches'. Notorious for quality journalism and extended cake breaks, YSTV Week's output was particularly prolific during this time, often stretching to a 40 minute programme every week. Kate and Kat also had a habit of turning up in identical outfits when producing the news on a Thursday. Their efforts were rewarded in the Summer of 2005 when YSTV Week won 'Best Show', Kat Sutton won 'Best Presenter' and Lucy Watkins won 'Best Newcomer' at the YUMAs.

Kat then went on to be a News Biatch in her own right at the BBC, whilst Kate also went to the BBC but in the television archive. Lucy flew the News Biatch flag for another year, and went on to be Controller of News and Current Affairs with Kev Larkin.
