My year as a morning-show host taught me that 'early' is a state of mind
The night before the big day, I set three alarms: my phone, my clock radio and an old-school alarm clock with a shrill bell that could snap someone out of a coma. But I was still nervous that I wouldn't wake up, so in true nighthawk fashion I stayed up ...

Beep … beep … beep. But I couldn’t hit snooze – I had to get up. I was a morning radio-show host. When I first told my family and friends that I’d landed the gig, they were shocked. My roommate mocked me: “Have you ever even been up early enough to listen to a morning show. She knew I was the kind of person who would stay up late and sleep through my alarm. I’d even begun to rely on her for a final wake-up call. She’d bang on the wall between our rooms to get me out of bed. As a kid, I would read two or three books in bed before finally dozing off. As I strategized on how to make the transition to morning person, I noticed that people have an obsession with sleep. “What time did you go to bed. “Are you tired this morning. Just like we gripe about the weather, we complain that we’re exhausted or feel embarrassed about sleeping too much. Almost every day for the duration of my stint as a morning host, I was asked a very specific question: “What time do you wake up. ”. The job called for me to be out of bed at 3:30 a. m. , sometimes even 3. In preparation, I spent a week leading up... At first, setting my alarm for a number that started with 3.

For Susanna Reid, Tina Daheley and Romilly Weeks, this election has more career novelty. It is Reid’s first fronting ITV’s Good Morning Britain. Daheley’s debut drumming up interest among the young Radio 1 listeners. and Weeks’ first as political correspondent at ITN. Daheley’s Newsbeat reaches 42 per cent of Britain’s 15- to 24-year-olds. ’ Reid, 44, who sips a strong skinny latte as we speak, says her thoughts are already on 8 May: ‘What is challenging for the breakfast programmes is that the answer may not appear on that Friday morning. One of the big developments of this election has been the debates and the not-quite debates. Burley (who is on ‘womb watch’ when we meet, in case the Duchess of Cambridge goes into labour and she has to dash off to stand outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s) says her campaign highlight so far was presenting The Battle for Number 10...
The decision not to charge Lord Janner over alleged child sexual abuse could lead the public to see any investigation into the establishment as a "whitewash", a group of senior politicians has warned. A cross-party group, co-ordinated by Labour's Simon Danczuk, claimed in a letter to the Times that the decision was "damaging public confidence" in the justice system and called for Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders to prosecute. "As long as justice is not seen to be done and the greater public interest is not served, the public will see attempts to investigate establishment figures involved in historic child abuse as a whitewash. "The CPS has acknowledged the case against Lord Janner passes its evidential test, and there are established precedents in proceeding with cases against defendants with advanced dementia. The letter was also co-signed by Labour's John Mann, John Hemming and Tessa Munt of the Liberal Democrats, Tory Sarah Wollastoon, Naomi Long of the Alliance Party and Jim Shannon of the DUP. Earlier Leicestershire Police, which has led the latest investigation against the peer, said it was "considering" contacting the Lords about an official letter Lord Janner signed on April 9 asking for a leave of absence.
