[[Eamonn Holmes]] has signed a three-year deal that will see him continue as host of Sky News’ breakfast show, Sunrise.
The deal puts an end to speculation that he might make a move to ITV Daybreak, to replace recently axed [[Adrian Chiles]].
Eamonn joined Sky News from GMTV in October 2005 to host the new look Sunrise alongside [[Lorna Dunkley]]. He now presents the show with [[Charlotte Hawkins]], sports presenter [[Jacquie Beltrao]] and weather presenters [[Isobel Lang]] and [[Nazaneen Ghaffar]].
“I’ve had a really fulfilling six years at Sky News,” said Eamonn.
“I have a tremendous team on Sunrise and we know from our audience feedback that people enjoy starting their day with the way we deliver the news. I look forward to helping to grow our morning audience and for those who haven’t given us a try, all I can say is “Switch to Sky”.”
John Ryley, Head of Sky News, said: “Eamonn and his Sunrise team are a favourite with our viewers. The show has consistently high ratings and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching it develop over the last six years. Eamonn is a true pro and will continue to present Sunrise with wit and flair.”
Since Eamonn joined Sky News in 2005, Sunrise has seen viewing figures grow by 140%.
