    General thread for day-to-day discussions about Sky Sports News and Sky Sports.

    A New Topic should be created in the first instance. Often most comments don’t warrant a new thread.

    This thread is mainly for general discussions, day-to-day operations, graphic tweaks, correspondents locations, up-and-coming programmes, and other pieces of information.

    The website promotion at the end of Sky Sports programme’s has been changed. They’re now done by a man with a very deep voice and not Georgie Thompson.

    has Dan Lobb been on all day? He was on this morning when I first turned the TV on and he’s still on right now with Ian Payne. Very long shift if he has been!

    He had an hour off from 10, Millie stayed on for that hour with Payne and then Dan came back at 11

    that makes sense. still a very long shift indeed – doesnt really make much sense when there are 2-hour slots during the week and some going on for 6-7 hours.

    Ian Payne has been on in the afternoon with Georgie Thompson recently. They seem to get on very well, and are a lot better to watch than when David Jones – who always comes across as bland and serious – is there.

    I agree I like Georgie without Dave Jones, although i like Georgie with anyone. I see they have another new dark haird girl presenting, she was on through the evening, not sure, not really suited to sports news, maybe the bbc or some other news but she was a bit manly for my liking & i doubt I’d tune in to see her.

    I am also disappointed Alison Bender has not yet learnt how to read properly. she is going down like a lead balloon on the capping site invisionplus. If Kelly is doing work for sky still, she may come back & hayley is doing so well on man united tv i just don’t understand how they haven’t been properly replaced, so bring them back. I wouldnt have minded seeing hayley grow on ssn over the years like georgie & kelly have done. ( I’m stuck on a night shift at work, bored, obviously).

    i think you’re talking about Alex Hyndman who was on a couple of times lat week. She was on Sky News today – she has an Aussie accent. Oh yeah and there was a ‘Lee McKenzie’ on the other night too, quite well built, with a Scots accent.

    all the women on SSN are so dull anyway, it’s hard to tell the difference.

    she has an Aussie accent, that much is clear, so you’d better jump in that Popemobile, gaz.

    Are Dave Clarke and Di Stewart done with Sky Sports News now? I haven’t seen them on SSN lately.

    I know Dave’s presenting Boxing, Darts and Di’s presenting Golf…

    Rob Wotton is presenting tonight’s championship football match. IIRC he is the fourth person this season to present league football, Jeff Stelling, George Gavin, and David Jones presenting previous games.
