Editor's Viewpoint: Victim of ageism?
Yet another well-known and much-loved face of UTV is about to bite the dust.
Pamela Ballantine, who has been |associated with the broadcaster for |almost 30 years, has been told her |job no longer exists, although she has been given a short-term freelance work offer.
An experienced broadcaster and a successful |ambassador for the independent television |company, it is hard to believe that Pamela could |be a victim of ageism. A regular on the Northern Ireland social scene, she has an age-defying zest |for life. UTV is very premature in pensioning off one its most popular and able presenters.
