Lynda Bryans makes dignified farewell to UTV
TV presenter Lynda Bryans presented her last UTV Live bulletin last night.
Lynda, married to broadcaster-turned-politician Mike Nesbitt, exchanged banter with colleague Paul Clarke as the curtain came down on her 14-year career with the media company.
Paying tribute to her teatime newsdesk co-host, she said that she had enjoyed working with someone so “courteous and professional” as Paul Clarke.
Lynda joined UTV as a newsreader in the mid-1990s and regularly co-presented UTV Live with her husband Mike until he left the station in 2006.
It is understood Lynda was told by UTV bosses that she was not being rehired due to ongoing financial restrictions within the company.
