Many social media users took to the comments to wish Ria well in the next step in her presenting career.
Ria gushed, as she replied: “Thank you, Char! I still remember my very first day and @HannahEmersonThsat at the prog ed desk.

Ria is known for her reporting and news reading skills across regional and national channels.
Last year she was given a spot on Good Morning Britain, presenting reports on incidents in London.
Charlene recently opened up on how she had been mistaken for fellow Loose Women panellist Brenda Edwards on countless occasions.
The ITV News presenter admitted that at a recent event she was mistaken for Brenda five times.
Posting on Twitter, Charlene wrote: “I’m used to being mistaken for my other black @loosewomen ladies. We all are tbh. Some ppl are too lazy to work out black women don’t all look alike. (sic)
“But I’ve spent today at a do with my LW fam where multiple times I was called Brenda. My response? ‘No, I’m the other black one’.
“You have no idea how many black women in the public eye get mistaken for each other. It happens routinely.
“Not just us, too many minority women & men on a daily basis.
“It upset me more than usual today, probably because it happened to a few of us at the Pride parade on Sat too.”
