Bob Warman - Presenter
I’ve been on your screens almost 40 years – according to ‘Steve Wright in the Afternoon’ the longest serving anchorman on the same programme in the world!
Born in Walsall, and educated at Wrekin College, Wellington, I worked on several newspapers and in radio before joining ATV in 1973.
I am President of the Birmingham Press Club, the world’s oldest Press Club, and an honorary Vice-President of the Journalists’ Charity. Also President of the Acorns Business Club which supports the Acorns Hospices, and Regional Chairman of Coutts & Co, private bank.
Sameena Ali-Khan - Presenter
I was hoping to qualify as a doctor but instead I got a science degree, an MA in TV and more importantly some life experience.
I began presenting in commercial radio then moved to BBC Asian Network, BBC GMR, WM and London and 5 Live.
Then came the screen test. Since then I’ve worked as a reporter/presenter for BBC North West Today, Inside Out, Midlands Today and now ITV News Central.
I host many high profile events/award ceremonies and away from TV, I love my family, swimming, cooking, and shopping!
Kate Fisher - Daybreak Presenter and ITV News Central Correspondent
It’s great to be back in my native Midlands after living in the north of England for several years.
Usually I get up at 4am to present the ITV News Central headlines during Daybreak but sometimes I’m allowed a lie in – that’s when I am presenting ITV News Central with Bob. I'm also regularly out reporting on stories all over the Midlands.
Before moving here I worked at ITV News Tyne Tees & Border where I covered the West Cumbria shootings and the police hunt for Raoul Moat. I also put Noel Gallagher and Russell Crowe through their paces!
In my spare time I enjoy cycling around our region’s beautiful countryside (with a good pub lunch in the middle).
I also love swimming, afternoon naps and trying to improve my terrible cooking.
Matt Teale - Presenter
I was born in Worcestershire, raised in Herefordshire, educated in Nottingham and I've also lived in Peterborough and Birmingham making the Midlands well and truly home.
I used to front sport on ITV News Central before joining ITN in 2007 as a presenter on Setanta Sports then as the main anchor of London Tonight.
I continue to front network news for ITV and I return to ITV News Central after spells with Sky News and the British Forces Broadcasting Service.
So far my career has taken me from Washington to Kabul and from Jamaica to Johannesburg.
While away from work, I'm a cricket-obsessed father of two and organiser of the Shobdon Food Festival, a charity event in north Herefordshire.
Lucy Kite - Weather presenter
I started my career at ITV News Central 13 years ago as a Producer on network and regional programmes before joining ITV News Central as a Presenter and Entertainment Correspondent.
From Robbie Williams to Sarah Jessica Parker I've interviewed some of the biggest stars in the world and even trained to dance on ice with Torvill and Dean!
I have presented helicopter series Sky High and won an RTS Awards for Best Entertainment Show with Rock Legends.
Before moving to the weather desk, I presented the late news for three years and still step in as the main anchor of ITV News Central. I love being out and about and present our monthly strand Country Calendar.
When I'm not presenting, my other big passion is yoga. I'm a qualified teacher and practice daily which keeps me nice and relaxed!
