    When the new look was presented , we read explanations why 3 presenters are required in major shifts and what is the importance of this new system.
    In the last days , we see long hours with one sole presenter.
    What is the real logic? one presenter ? two? three?
    and why in weekends and holidays we see different patterns than in weekdays?

    Because there is less ‘news’ happening and fewer people watching.

    And Sky News presenters are entitled to a holiday as much as the next guy!

    to be honest its the best its been since the move to the new studio,no fancy hour long shows for the so called stars of the channel,just news delivered the way they used to do it.no jimmy rubin,no kay burley and it was great.and as for kay burleys ego trip on xmas day ‘hey look at me im a true pro cos im working xmas day’if my boss gave me a week and a half off for working 4 hours on xmas day then id do it aswell

    and if kay didn’t work on christmas day you would say “oh look, all the ‘stars’ of sky news are too wrapped up in their own ego to want to come to work”!

    Oh come off it!

    Working Christmas Day does NOT make you a hero, and I suspect that Kay Burley knows that as well as you do.

    My sister does it every year, she doesn’t moan or complain or even brag. Yes – Kay Burley does have a higher ego than some other members of the presenting team – but in reality she is no different.

    I suspect she worked Sunrise on that day so that she could be at home with the kids for Christmas lunch.

    I also suspect that if Kay Burley were to leave Sky News, you’d be saying “oh look, Kay has left Sky – maybe her ego go too big for the channel.”

    Seriously – get some perspective and stop ranting about the same thing over and over.

    she’s done Christmas Day sunrise for the last 3 years if i can remember.
    Chances are she was asked by her bosses to do it again – what exactly has she done wrong here?

    I still can’t understand what makes you think that working on Christmas Day is ego driven. It’s starting to become a part of life. Thousands of people across the UK do it – Kay Burley is just one.

    Simply because it was the only day she worked for 2 weeks,she could have done what the like of Etchingham and Dunkley did and stayed away altogether
