I thought this was too important to go in the New Studios thread and warranted it's own space!



From mediaguardian.co.uk:



9.45am: Sky News has hired former GMTV presenter Eamonn Holmes to present its breakfast show, Sunrise, with Lorna Dunkley when the channel relaunches later this year. More soon...

Very surprising, but what a great move by Sky News.

But why would Eamonn go from one breakfast programme to another when he said he was tired of getting up so early? I can't see how this makes much sense what with him trying to become a BBC man, although it a coup for Sky.

Well he was critical that the news content within GMTV wasn't nearly as good as what it was years before - and GMTV probably weren't offering him as much money as he wanted.

Eamonn left GMTV due to problems with Producers according to this http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/article/ds21060.htmlnewsline from Digital Spy. So 'tired getting up so early' comment was probably only half the reason for leaving GMTV.

Steve Dixon's an awesome presenter and deserves a good place on the schedule. I'm surprised but pleased to hear that Eamonn's been hired, but it's not good to hear that when Steve works on Sunrise from June that it's only temporary. I wonder if he's heard yet. Poor guy.
