Mike Neville

RIP Mike Neville
king of local TV.
Born in Willington Quay.
Look North was never
the same once you left.
Never too serious,
always real and relaxed.
Happy to chat
when all things broke down.
Briefly you made national TV,
but never moved to London.
Like your predecessor, Frank Bough.
There was no succumbing to
the capitals delights.
Instead you saved your best
for Newcastle and its environs,
for Northumberland, Durham,
Tyne and Wear, Cleveland,
Cumbria and Berwick on Tweed.
