Sky News is getting a brand spanking new news studio and building as well as revised evening schedule. Knowing Sky News’ usual trend, I would imagine that they will have new idents/logos and graphics.
As for presenters, doubt they’ll dump any, but they might bring in new ones, if they do revise their evening schedule.
It has been a while since Sky News has had a major overhaul (excluding the minor studio refresh earlier this year). Their usual trend was every couple of years or so; 1995, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001…So I think another one is overdue in my opinion.
Well there are 2 things that spring to mind. BRING BACK SIMON McCOY AND NATASHA KAPLINSKY AND When there’s a breaking news story would the presenters please stop the “it’s far too early to speculate”.. then spend the next half hour doing just that! Apart from that i’m quite happy with their broadcasting.
I’m looking forward to Sky news next year. Its a bit exciting, a new look in a new studio and the arrival of Five News in their new studio too.
The prospect of a multi level ‘stage’ including perhaps a lift or spiral staircase is intriguing, it could bring a new slant to the term ‘ Breaking News ‘ ; Stunt man lessons for the entire news team may be necessary. As well I,d like to see some interchange between the Five news team and Sky and have presenters guesting on each.
