Viewers tuning in to ITV News West Country from next week (Monday July 8th) will get their first glimpse of the programme’s new presenting partnership.

Kylie Pentelow will be joining Ian Axton in the studio to bring viewers the latest news from across the West Country. Prior to joining ITV News West Country, Kylie worked as a presenter and reporter for the BBC in Nottingham.

Kylie said her very first job as a Journalist was in the West Country, and she fell in love with it then and always thought ‘one day I'll come back!’

Little did I know that I'd come back to probably the best job I could have in the region. I can't wait to present the news with Ian Axton and work with the whole ITV team. But even more than that, I'm really excited to be part of our fantastic region again. I am going to be getting out and about, meeting the people who live here and discovering what stories you want us to cover.”

I'm proud to have worked with such a great team, both on and off screen, since I joined ITV News West Country three years ago. Establishing a new partnership with Kylie is the next chapter for me and we’re both really looking forward to working together.”

Kylie and Ian are both passionate about the West Country. Together, their experience, both as presenters and as Journalists, will make for a winning partnership.”

ITV News West Country can be seen weeknights at 6pm on ITV.
