Question of the day: disability on TV

Here is my question of the day.

CBBC and CITV are pretty good at having presenters who have disabilities (and not just for programmes that are actually about disability or specifically for disabled people).  This is great.

I also saw lots of disabled presenters on TV when the paralympics was on.

But here’s the thing: why aren’t there more disabled TV presenters on regular TV?  Why aren’t there lots of newsreaders or weather forecasters with disabilities? Why don’t we see more people with disabilities presenting documentaries (about things other than disability!).

So, that’s my question of the day. Please leave your answers in a comment. Thank you!
