Sian Williams leaves BBC Breakfast

It was a sad day for early morning viewers this morning, as BBC Breakfast presenter Sian Williams, after over a decade on the famous red sofa, hung up her microphone and waved goodbye to breakfast television. A competent and professional presenter, Sian has been a delight to viewers waking up in the morning, with her co-host Bill Turnball. Today, she gave her final summary in a tear-jerking show that saw her reduced to tears as she looked back on her favourite moments on the programme.

The programme, the most watched breakfast show in the UK, is relocating to Salford this year in Manchester, with a new studio and new producers. Despite criticism from the Media and the public at the move, the BBC have gone ahead with the plans, meaning Sian's fate was inevitable. Preferring to stay with her family down South, Sian decided to resign from the early morning starts.

Sian will not be disappearing altogether however. Soon to be presenting on Radio 4, along with her commitments to the Olympics and BBC News summaries, the presenter is dedicated to the BBC, telling the Daily Mail "the BBC is in my blood."

As an aspiring journalist, it is my dream, one day, to get the chance to present a news programme, and Sian's legacy has really inspired me. Her warm-hearted touch, together with her co-presenter Bill Turnball, has delighted over 2 million viewers in the country. She will be missed.
