Sky News Presenter Michael Watkins is leaving Sky after 5 years with the Company. Michael who started freelancing with Sky in May 1999 has presented coverage of the Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraqi conflicts.
Michael told me earlier today
“I’m leaving Sky of my own accord, to give myself the drive to explore pastures new. I also quite like the idea of sleeping at night.
I’ve really enjoyed my time at Sky News and although
i won’t be doing regular night shifts anymore, I may still appear
overnight very occasionally to cover emergencies! I hope to return to
Sky at some point in the future. Best wishes, Michael Watkins”
This is a shame. I like Michael Watkins as a presenter. The younger presenters make a refreshing change from the Allan Kings and David Fosters who seem to be on all the time. You would think after 5 years they would have used him in the daytime. I would be sick of nights after 5 years! When is he leaving? Is it possible to contact any of the presenters by e-mail. If so does Michael have an e-mail add?
