Ross still makes the headlines

It seems the media is still keeping one ear on Jonathan Ross's BBC Radio 2 show as a news bulletin which helped contact a coastguard made headlines in various papers.

The story, which originated from PA, made it to the Daily Mail and BBC News homepage on Saturday.

And even though the show is pre-recorded, Ross is credited with helping the Coastguard broadcast a message on Radio 2 to a ship which was blocking a communication channel.

A Dover coastguard could hear the station on in the background so contacted Radio 2 to ask them to make an appeal to the boat. A special announcement was then made during the midday news bulletin.

Comments on the [link=]Daily Mail[/link] quite rightly asked: "Is this really news?" and "Ross wasn't to the rescue, I doubt if he had any knowledge of what went on…..".
