Sir Trevor reads final bulletin
Sir Trevor McDonald

Newsreader Sir Trevor McDonald has presented the ITN late-night bulletin for the final time.

He signed off by saying: "That brings to an end my association with the news at 10.30. Thank you for watching."

Sir Trevor, 66, who has won more awards than any other British broadcaster, has worked for ITN for 32 years and anchored the show since 1990.

He will still front current affairs show Tonight with Trevor McDonald. Mark Austin will anchor the late bulletin.

Sir Trevor received the Richard Dimbleby Award for Outstanding Contribution to Television from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in 1999. In the same year he was knighted.

He began his television career in his native Trinidad in 1962 where he read the nightly news.

He became ITN's first black journalist when he joined as a reporter in 1973 from the BBC World Service.

He took over presenting the channel's flagship News at Ten show in 1990 and became known for quipping "and finally" before reporting a light hearted story at the end of news bulletins.
