Sky News' Viewers' Editor Paul Bromley has confirmed that Sky News is "working on a change to our graphics look."

He said, "It is no secret that we are working on a change to our graphics look. It will concentrate initially on what we call the "lower third" of the screen. Our current plan is to make the change in the next few weeks - but not January 29."

He said other changes to the titles and look will not be installed until the spring at the earliest.

I think the glove should come back, and then all of the Sky News presenters faces should appear too, when opening to the show on the hour

Latest from Paul's blog...



Sky News' design changes for the "lower third" of the screen have now been approved.



The changes will involve:

|colorc a new way of alerting you to breaking news

|colorc a redesigned ticker

|colorc a "richer" on-screen look



You'll be able to see the new look on air by the end of February.



The exact date depends on some technical issues still to be resolved.



Other changes to on-screen look, like the TOTH opening sequence will be made later.

The current graphics i think look very 2D. Sounds to me they are going to be more like Fox News graphics taking up the bottom 3rd rather than the bottom 4th. And also sounds like sky are gonna have a Sky News Aert! Best thing Sky have done all year.

Sky have had a 'Sky News Alert' since their relaunch, if you mean in terms of the name of the strap. They use it to tell you when news conferences are broadcasting etc.



Or do you mean a fullscreen news alert graphic, kaylover?, in which case i agree with you there.

Well all these changes sound great, if rumours are true the graphics sound alot more professional.

One rumour is that the new graphics will involve a Traffic Light system, changing the colour of the graphics for the importance of a story. I've also heard that the ticker will change colour.

so its either Monday 19th January, or Monday 26th January. Can't wait!
