Six years ago today, 24th October, Sky News begun broadcasting from their new Studio..
I wasn’t going to make a post about this, but after tweeting the above info on Twitter, a few Sky News staffers replied with their memories of the move from Studio 2 in unit 5, to Studio A in unit 1.
[[Lorna Dunkley]] (@SkyLornaD), who presented the first programme from the new studio with [[Eamonn Holmes]] said: “Blimey! Feels like it was only a year ago. How things have changed!”
Marcus Payne (@nowtro), Former director at Sky News said: “It was me keeping the old channel on the air for the previous 2 months while everyone else was rehearsing over the road!”
And staffer, Gareth Stanley (@gmanistan) said: “I remember being in at midnight the day before desperately trying to build graphics that hadn’t been finished! We made it. Just!”
