Weather Presenter Bob Crampton retires after four decades at ITV
Coming face to face with the Taliban in Afghanistan after the Russian occupiers left; seeing Fred and Rosemary West's faces in court when they first faced mass murder charges in court; reporting on the Penlee lifeboat disaster, and presenting the weather forecast live dressed in knight's armour on St George's Day. I got into journalism through a work experience week at my local radio station in Hull when I was in the 6th form. I was a newsroom assistant -tasks included recycling tape, it was in the pre-digital era, compiling traffic and travel reports, answering phones, taking down copy from reporters, getting everyone tea and coffee, getting their lunch orders etc.
I absolutely loved it! I listened and I learned and I was fortunate to be around people who had the patience to pass on their experience to a teenager.Bob's Christmas Rave (Granada TV 1990)
What do I like about Calendar? The buzz, the adrenaline, the fun. I love meeting people and am always grateful that they are willing to share their stories with us and the viewers.
Reacting to breaking news is challenging, but so exciting. I love to write. And I am lucky to work with a fantastic team - you could not meet a nicer and more fun-loving bunch of people. It is impossible to choose what my favourites stories to work on have been.
ITV Border: Meet the team
Following the story of young Ben Smithson, the boy who went to America for an operation to help him walk, was wonderful to cover. The access he and his family gave us was amazing, but there are so many other stories too. I have trained and flown with the RAF, sailed on a Royal Navy warship and I have even dressed up as a goose and had a conversation with Sooty and Sweep! As for the funniest thing that has happened to me whilst working for Calendar…again it is difficult to say. I do not have a natural affinity with animals - and I think they can sense this.
I once had a dog pee in my bag in front of a whole bunch of press as we waited for lottery winners and a hamster once caused much amusement as I tried to hold it - but the least said about that, the better!
