Back to the old insults again I see daved2424. I don't see what it contributes, really I don't. I wish you could find a more constructive way of expressing yourself.

The only confirmed line-up as far as I know Will is Lorna Dunkley & Eamon Holmes presenting Sunrise which will be 1 hour shorter, i.e. 6 am - 9 am.

I also hear that some slots may have 3 presenters, and some only 1. That way the new talent will be able to cut their teeth in the company of the more experienced, whilst heavyweight presenters like Julie Etchingham (the best on any channel in my opinion) will be able to showcase in a dedicated slot of their own.

I think they hope to launch in the autumn, i.e. September.

I'm not sure who you 'phoned, but usually the Press & Publicity Office would be the first port of call, as I don't imagine that the regular wo/man in the newsroom would know. Very often the ordinary worker is amongst the last to know about management plans.

I have heard that Mr. Thompson will be moving from Live at Five, to 7pm, as part of the new lineup, and Sky News Today, will be longer then before.

Yes that makes sense. If SUNRISE will finish at 9 am, then TODAY could well be on-air from 9 am - 1 pm. Maybe that will be one of the shows with 3 presenters.

Mr.Thompson is very much the male on-screen identity of SKY News, and I reckon he would be a definite choice for his own show.

That would free-up the Live at Five position for Steve Dixon, or Mark Longhurst, or Chris Roberts.

Maybe Martin Stanford will stay on TODAY with 2 of the new female presenters? Ha Ha Ha, I'll bet he'd love that.

'Today' can only run until 12pm. Kay Burley is doing the 12 -2pm Shift, Mr. Thompson is doing 5 - 6:30pm and Julie is doing 7 - 8pm.

I'm guessing that Mark and Anna may do 2-5pm and business or sports will be on between 6:30 - 7pm.

I can see what you are saying about the daytime line-up - but who will take over the late evening slot, after Julie's show?

What will become of Juliette, Viv, Paula, Anjali and Emma?

Will there be a set pair for rolling news shows or will it be a orgy of presenters?

I am also wondering if Colin Brazier will be a big name within the presenting squad - after his recent appearances on 8 to midnight shifts.

I like it slinden... B)

... although Sky News First Edition in Australia/NZ is just a rolling bulletin of 30 minutes. Every 30 minutes is pretty much exactly the same repeated over and over again. :rolleyes:

You have to ask yourself why this pointless question requires a seperate thread, it has been covered extensively before. There is a dedicated thread for any Sky News relaunch developments.
