Sky News has signed up former Labour MP Oona King and Michael Howard’s former political secretary Rachel Whetstone as contributors to Julie Etchingham’s new weeknight programme.

The show will air from 7-8pm.

Nick Pollard, head of Sky News, said that the duo were important signings, “at a moment when we are making significant changes to the way 24-hour news is covered.”
