The problem with the South African newsreader is neither nationality or whether English is her first language or not. Her phrasing and syntax is just really odd and she reads the news as though it’s the first time she’s read the information. It’s worse than Howie’s speech reading-out. And that’s saying something. 

It is exactly that.  Stephen Hawking used to have better phrasing.

She is very difficult for some people to understand. My Dad can’t get a word of it so turns off.

Being able to clearly speak and be understood by the people listening is a fairly significant requirement for a news reader isn’t it?

Must confess I have to strain to work out what she is saying sometimes. Which you really shouldn’t have to do.

Me too - and the missus.

'' and the Missus''???? Can you not remember her name???

He just means he hasn't a clue what his wife's on about. That's normal for most of us.

(Ah. I see the site just made me an "apprentice". Ain't that nice?)

Pile back in Woolley.

It is a basic rule that a newsreader should speak in a clear voice. Except at Manx Radio. It's not racist or xenophobic to comment on a newsreader who doesn't meet that basic rule.

Just heard Bogota (Capital of Colombia) pronounced 'Bogotter' by another newsreader. Real amateur stuff up there. Terry Cringle, Peter Kneale, David Callister etc would be wincing at that one.

Assuming this is a different Saffa to the girl that used to be on 3FM in the mornings? 

She used to crack me up mangling some of the Manx place names. 

The rest of her presentation stuff was reasonably good however.
