Click for larger image GMTV - First Edition Broadcast
01.01.93
Click for larger image January 1st 1993 "Good Morning. A new day, a new year, a new television station. Welcome to GMTV, Britain's brightest start..." Those were the first words spoken by Eamonn on the first edition. Unfortunately as with TV-am things were not all rosey and changes were ahead!

First Weather Bulletin
01.01.93
GMTV Weather with Emma Jesson. The GMTV weather was first produced from Birmingham by the Weather Department. This wasn't to last!

GMTV - First Weekday Broadcast
1993
Michael and Fiona were to present Monday to Thursday with Eamonn and Anne presenting on Friday. Unfortunately the transition from TV-am was not a smooth one. Fiona soon left, Michael continued with GMTV, starting the successful "News Hour", weekday mornings at 6 am. Eamonn and Anne presented 5 days a week for a short time.
 
Right clip - Of course today we take ITV local news at breakfast for granted, but it wasn't always that way. GMTV introduced the service on Monday 4th January 1993.

GMTV was given a complete makeover in January 2009, following the departure of Fiona Phillips. GMTV announced two new presenters as part of the new look - Emma Crosby, aged 31 poached from Sky News and Kirsty McCabe, as weather presenter (poached from the BBC)
 
"We wanted to freshen up the programme for the New Year," continued GMTV's Peter McHugh. "And the addition of Emma and Kirsty to our already established presenting team is part of that plan. We'll be sprucing up the set too, so our viewers will have a lot to look forward to."
