    Why bring him back? Sunrise is far better without him such that I’ve stopped watching News24.

    It would cost too much to get rid of him?

    Sunrise last Friday-Sunday was a lot more refreshing….

    …I’ve even took to Martin Popplewell presenting it the past couple of days!

    just don’t get the logic, I really like Lorna but they need to find someone who she can work with, either that Steve and Emma are great at the weekend.

    i think the hiring of Eamonn Holmes was a vanity appointment on behalf of the previous channel controller, in order to show off the relaunch and get the maximum publicity. I don’t think it’s worked though, considering he’s only ever been part-time and just looks bored and self-interested when he does turn up.

    Isn’t it time for someome to admit that Eamonn Holmes was a mistake, as SSLuke suggested? It seemed a very odd appointment from the beginning; he just doesn’t seem to come up to the standards of seriousness and credibility that most Sky people have.

    Sunrise with Lorna and Martin Popplewell has been a breath of fresh air. I was hoping that reports of EH being in Celebrity Big Brother would turn out to be correct, so that his return could be delayed, but no such luck. I am sure that he is better suited to that sort of programme, where the the emphasis can be on him as a person, rather than having to put content (the news) above personality (his!).

    Martin Popplewell would make an ideal replacement; he really seems to relate well to Lorna. Both seem to be paired with the wrong people at present, Lorna on Sunrise and Martin on weekend evenings.

    Martin Popplewell was very good the past week or so, I agree, he also doesn’t seem to be missing his cue to speak like previous.

    My only gripe about him now is that he has developed the habit Steve Dixon has, of smiling a bit too much, even when the story is serious.

    Maybe Sky will see the light in the end, how long was his [Eammons] contract?

    Sky’s problem is it makes, or tries to make, superstars of newsreaders. EAmmons a joke, as was Rubin and Kay Burley is a waste of 2 hours each week day. It makes me laugh the way that these ‘stars’ vanish at weekends and Bank holidays. Burley will barge her way in if theres a big story so she can hog the limelight, like with the whale story, and her hero slot on Xmas Day Sunrise, after which she had the rest of the week off. I bet someone like Colin Brazier would jump at doing 4 hours on Xmas morning if he got the next week off

    I agree that Holmes doesn’t seem to take it too seriously, and doing lots of quiz shows means that viewers might regard him as less convincing as a news reader.

    Holmes – not a seriously news reader…

    For me it isn?t the person Eamonn Holmes. I like “Prince Charming” in front of my Television – but I agree with you “jk80” – he doesn?t seem to take his job seriously. He doing lots of quiz shows, and we (the viewers) might regard Eamonn Holmes as less convincing as a “news” leader.

    Jeps. I understand you, “jk80”!….Friendly Classeyham……..

    And this new Sunrise is….well I just hope weekend Sunrise doesn’t go the same way….

    It reminds me of Breakfast a few years ago, where you would have two presenters such as Bill Turnbull and Sian Williams on the sofa/chairs, whilst another newsreader [Suzanne Virdee did a few, so too Moira Stewart] would read the headlines….

    Eamonn now appears even more monotonous….all they need is fake flowers, croissants on the table…sofa and we’ve a blue GMTV :rolleyes:

    Saturday Live it works fine as the presenters are quite spontanious, something he no-longer isn’t.

    so yet another single-headed show on Sky News. Perhaps they thought Eamonn works better on his own (and maybe he does) so why did they go and hire someone from outside to read headlines?

    she must have been on air 3 mins per hour maximum.

    what with the constant paper reviews it reminded me of the short-lived Scott Chisholm Show on the ITVNC, which I thought was great because Scott never seemed to take it seriously.
