That's strange. I can't even remember the last time she was on in the morning. It must have been in the BizNews era.

She always looks a bit sleepy when anchoring in the morning.

I think Fionnuala is very good at her job, whatever is anchoring, covering corrent events and intervieing.

I think people sometimes don't give her the credit she deserves. Maybe because she seems to be a more reserved person, even shy sometimes. I bet she is a real nice person. There is this warmness in her eyes. Besides she is Irish. I havenít met yet, an Irish person who wasnít nice. :wink: :D

Here's one recent pic of her in nice outfit. I liked here hair before, although I'm used to this short bob now.

Her hairstylist needs to be fired. The fringe is horrendous, does Fionnuala no favours.

She conduct a fantastic interview with an unionist lawmaker from Northern Ireland last week, considering her birthplace sensitivities and all.

Loving the London background as well. Hopefully it is for the long haul. :)

I have had a change of heart towards Fionnuala! When I get home from school, she is hosting WNE and Headlines and such. Good voice, but she does rush herself. She doesn't wait for the images to change on the opener to talk about it, she just keeps going!

I'm afraid I don't really like Fionnuala - I don't greatly dislike her, but she really lacks the charm that most other CNNI anchors have. And since the thing that really makes me like CNN much more than any other network is that the anchors have so much fun, Fionnuala really doesn't fit in. David's example of her rushing through the intro sequence in about 12 seconds is the thing that really annoys me - other anchors space it about a bit so you can see them smiling, and hear the great music. But she just has to sound as if she's desperate to go home! And Fionnuala (that name's hard to spell!), PLEASE change your hairstyle :lol: .

Nevertheless, she's always very clear and efficient - she's an OK anchor, but just not on CNN. :D

Whats up with the hair? She needed a makeover but not as drastic as she did. Everyday is a gothic look. She doesn't have any color in her closet? Hardly see her smiling. If she is that piss with her job why is she there. Maybe as you said she doesn't think she fits in or probably she is going through mid-life crises (just realized what she missed during her teenage years), now she is reinventing herself.
