At long last the Island gets what it deserves: a capable supper-hour news interviewer. Sara Fraser was an excellent newsreader, but one always got the impression that she wasn’t comfortable on the fly.

Bruce Rainnie comes into his own on the improv stage: tonight’s political panel was the best example of this yet. I look forward to more of same.
