Sky News to open new business studio at the ‘Baby Shard’

From next month, Sky News will start broadcasting from a new business studio in The News Building at London Bridge, the building formerly known as the Baby Shard.

The new state of the art studio, based on the 14th floor, will be home to Sky News’ flagship business show, Ian King Live, which airs Monday to Thursday at 6.30pm.

“Our new home in the Baby Shard places us in the heart of Europe’s biggest financial centre as the UK economy grapples with the opportunities and challenges created by Brexit, allowing us rapid access to all the important players that will be shaping the story. It’s going to be thrilling,” said Ian King, Sky News Presenter

The new studio, with a stunning backdrop over the City, will also serve as a hub for the Sky News business unit and will be used by key members of the team including City Editor, Mark Kleinman and Economics Editor, Ed Conway.

John Ryley, Head of Sky News, added: “As the challenges of Brexit and the changing economic story unfolds, our commitment to invest in a new studio dedicated to our business coverage will ensure our specialists and contributors are best placed to bring viewers all the latest news and analysis that matter to them.”
