2pm C. J. Mahony takes charge of ITV branding for the week
This week, it’s the turn of C. J. Mahony to brand the main ITV channel. Mahony’s ITV Creates idents were first aired back in April 2019.
The first of these repeat airings took place in the 1.45pm junction leading into the ITV Lunchtime News today.

The on air unveiling of the new look Studio B (NBH) is now more likely to happen in June. There are also expected to be some set adjustments for BBC Wales Today in June.

The new BBC blocks logo will be introduced on BBC News from 9am tomorrow morning. Nothing else of significance is changing though. The Lambie-Nairn title sequence is not going anywhere for the time being.
As mentioned previously, the on-air launch of the new-look Studio B (NBH) looks likely to be June now rather than May. More than a hint of BBC Wales Today about the new set.
