“I’m looking forward to being part of a talented and ambitious editorial team that gets under the skin of the stories that really matter to London.”
The editor of London Tonight, Faye Nickolds said: “Donal will be a fantastic addition to the programme. With the general election looming and a buzz around London ahead of the 2012 Olympics, Donal will bring his unique brand of journalism and presenting to up to a million viewers a night.”
