John Humphrys will chair tonight’s Question Time for David Dimbleby who was injured yesterday in a minor farming accident.
The BBC Said: “David was loading a bullock on to a trailer when the bullock reared, resulting in David being briefly knocked out. He also received a cut to the head that required stitches.”
CNN’s John King will take over Lou Dobbs’ vacant 7pm slot on CNN from early next year.
John said “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity, at this busy and consequential time, to have a platform to discuss and explore the big issues of our time.

I’m looking forward to combining those conversations with top newsmakers, smart reporting and expert analysis.”
