    The Daily Mirror is reporting that Dermot Murnaghan is joining Sky News, Apparently he’s been offered a 7 figure sum.

    If he is joining, where will he go? A seven figure sum presenter isn’t going to do cover or weekend shifts.. so, with the new schedule full of top names does this mean one of them is about to give way? or are we going to see some double headed shows again?

    Is Dermot suppose to present on Fridays? He hasn’t done one full week yet.

    More money than sense?

    How does that expenditure fit with the virtual sidelining of many exisitng presenters who are equally if not more capable ?

    There must be some departures, but the BBC won’t need them after today’s announcement of the streamlining of News.

    They have all these presenters doing very little and then waste more money luring BBC presenters on big bucks.

    They already have Colin doing nothing while Andrew Wilson, who has been a presenter for 2 minutes, gets his own show and now they go and bring in someone else who will obviously get some special role.

    Sky News, run by complete idiots

    Media are getting all excited by reductions in News staffing at the BBC – A pity it is only a cull and not genocide!

    That was the good news but the bad news is that Sky will be contaminated by the biased beeboids deserting the sinking ship.

    I cant remember but did Dermot present Breakfast when Julie was working there. Looks like Dermot will be presenting Sky News Today between 9am and 1pm, so could be carrying on presenting the news together.

    There’s a Interview with Dermot in today’s independent: http://news.independent.co.uk/media/article3313043.eceLink

    Jeremy Thompson, walks into the room. “Oh, it’s JT,” exclaims Murnaghan, before the pair, greet each other like a couple of luvvies. “We got you in the January transfer window, fantastic,” says Thompson,

    Dermot and John Suchet discussing the return of News at Ten:

    JS: “Only four nights a week!”, DM: “Yes God, it’s News at Ten, don’t keep trying to fix it!”, JS: “They’ll never get it right will they?”.

    It’s a good interview.

    Does anyone else think that Dermot isn’t quite suited to presenting the show on his own? When he was at auntie, he always had someone with him in the morning, or if he was presenting the news, it was only half an hour long. I think they should bring back Martin Stanford and make 9-1 similar to afternoon live. It was good in the old days when Martin and Julie would stand and use the Newswall a lot more that it is now.

    I’m a fan of Dermot however he comes! But I think you’re right he would be better bouncing off someone else.

    But I’m not loving the single-presenter format at all on Sky News at the moment…it’s very un-Sky News! And doesn’t utilise some of their best people: Colin Brazier, Emma Crosby, Martin Stanford, Anna Jones, Lorna Dunkley, Martin Popplewell and Paula Middlehurst to name but a few!!!

    BBC News 24 is far easier to watch these days…so now you get better coverage, better presenting teams and less annoying graphics on News 24! Not really sure what Sky are trying to achieve at the moment…
