NAGA MUNCHETTY, BBC Breakfast host alongside Charlie Stayt, addressed the departure of her BBC news colleague, newsreader Carrie Gracie, who announced she was leaving the broadcaster after 33 years on-air.
BBC Breakfast star Naga Munchetty, 45, sent her colleague a loving message after she announced her last day on-air as BBC newsreader on Tuesday. Carrie is best-known for being China Editor for BBC News, until she stepped down from the role in 2018 over "pay discrimination issues", returning to her former post in the newsroom.

Taking to Twitter, Carrie shared a sweet message with her followers of her final goodbye from the news desk after 33-years on-air.

"My last day on air. After 33 years, time to do something new," she wrote.

"Proud of a few things: told the China story, fought for a fair workplace, gave away the back pay I won, wrote the book.

"But most of all grateful to audiences and brilliant colleagues. THE BEST. I’ll miss you."

The comments section was flooded with messages from fans, all wishing her well on her next endeavour.
