Sky News opens City Studio

Sky News is to move Jeff Randall Live to a new studio in the heart of the city.

The half-hour business programme, which airs Monday to Thursday will come live from
30 St Mary Axe, better known as ‘the Gherkin’. Special programmes like the budget and other business related programmes will also emanate from the new studio.

Executive editor for Sky News, Chris Birkett, said: ?The recession has undoubtedly been the most dominant recurring story of the last 18 months and will continue to be, as its effects reverberate in businesses and homes across the country.

?The City of London is at the heart of the UK economy, it?s where the banking crisis happened and it?s where the key players ? from monetary policy makers to top executives and analysts ? are based.

?The new studio will provide Sky News viewers with a visually stunning backdrop for business news, and with the launch of the HD channel in the spring, it will bring them even closer to the business stories that matter to them.?
