New presenter Ian White is set to co-host ITV News Calendar for the first time.

The former BBC presenter, who was announced as Calendar's new permanent co-host last month, will make his debut on the main 6pm programme on Monday, 14 November.

He will anchor the programme alongside Lara Rostron, a fellow former presenter of the BBC's regional news programme Look North, who joined in April. Kerrie Gosney, who became the permanent weather presenter in August, completes the new-look lineup.

Ian said: "After much anticipation, I’m very excited to present Calendar for the first time. I've been made to feel extremely welcome already and I'm looking forward to sharing the studio with Lara again having presented together in the past at the BBC. 

"I've long been an admirer of Calendar. Now I get to be invited into the homes of our viewers – what an honour! I'm raring to go."
