People appreciate news reporting that is honest and comes from the heart.
So it’s no surprise BBC newscaster Simon McCoy’s 2020 highlight reel is really resonating with people.
A highlight can refer to just an important moment or detail. It can also mean the opposite of a lowlight—the great or happy events versus the not so great.
McCoy apparently employs that second definition. With the announcement of the segment, even McCoy seemed tensed to view the dumpster fire that was 2020.
McCoy started his intro to the piece with a sigh, his lips tense.
“Um … I’m just going to show you a special programme. We’ve put up the highlights of 2020, let’s just have a look.”

The highlight reel lasted zero seconds.
McCoy, who had glanced down to his monitor as if to watch the thrilling reel, looked back up to camera.
“Exactly. It’s farewell 2020.”
He then pitched the show back to his colleagues for the next story. The entire segment lasted just a few moments.
Heartfelt and honest reporting.
