    Anyone know what this is about? … &week=213#

    Surely it cannot be correct.

    Looks like a one off for that week.

    Dont know what is the problem

    But why such a dramatic change for 1 week?
    I think its significant that it is the only page to be updated recently,if you notice in the top its says "last updated 12th Sept" whereas the others were all updated in August.
    I think it is a new schedule.

    "Surely it cannot be correct?" I agree, but we have got used to these eccentric schedules in recent months.

    Kay Burley all afternoon? I can avoid Sky News between 12 and 2 with little difficulty, but needing to avoid it all afternoon would cause real problems.

    And KB in the afternoons following Julie Etchingham in the mornings? Too much "personality" in the afternoons following too little in the mornings?

    It would be so sad, if justifiable, if the really talented journalists of Sky News began to look elsewhere for employment! (We can all supply our own lists, so I won’t name names.)

    Strangest thing is to the new schedule is Jeff Randall is not on that week and next week he is only at half past 7 once next week.

    Is Jeff Randall on only once a month or something. Sorry if this one is on the wrong thread

    Kay Burley just said on Lunchtimetime Live something along the lines of "If you keep an eye on that page
    over the next couple of weeks or so,you will notice a change first,i cant tell you more if i do i would have to
    kill you"

    I presume she could only have been talking about the extension and renaming of LL.

    Further updates to the schedlue.

    Andrew Wilson to present Live at Five on Saturdays and Sundays.

    Steve Dixon to present Sky News at 7 on Fridays,Saturdays and Sundays.

    New slot called Weekend Lunchtime between 12 and 2 on Sat and Sun.

    Saturday Live with Chris Roberts.

    Sportsline moves to 7.30 on weekends. … chan=NEWB#

    i think that is stupid i think sky news will be losing all the veiweres
    why r they doin this

    i could be wrong but digitalspy is showing the new line up to be:-

    if it does go down to 1 presenter, i think Sky have forgot what they are all about (bob friend and anna botting great news with a personal touch)

    6am: Sunrise with Eamonn Holmes
    9am: Sky Today with Julie Etchingham
    1pm: Afternoon Live with Kay Burley
    5pm: Live at Five with Jeremy Thompson
    7pm: Sky News at Seven with Anna Botting
    7:30pm: Jeff Randall Live (Monday); News (Tuesday – Friday)
    8pm: News, Sport and Weather (30 minutes)
    10pm: Sky News at Ten with Anna Botting
    11pm: Sky News Tonight with Anna Botting

    Maybe martin will be at the newswall all day to expand on the stories, Anna could be updating viewers on their emails and breaking news. Colin could be presenting from out in the field, on location of the top story? A Sky Tag Team event?…. although i expect im getting ahead of myself and overestimating the creative capacity of Sky. However this move does seem like a step back to appointment to view programs. Lets hope they get their own branding and maybe even graphics????? PLEASE!!!!!!!!

    Yes, this all looks daft, but perhaps we should not get too worked up about it. Knowing Sky there will be yet another complete change round in a few weeks.

    When I was a young trainee teacher we were advised never to chase after a bus, a woman (or man) or a new educational idea, since another would soon come along. Has it become exactly the same with Sky schedules?

    It is such a shame that the ITV News channel doesn’t still exist, in order to keep Sky on its toes. At present it has no real competition, so we will end up watching Sky despite wall-to-wall Etchingham/Burley. Surely the heavyweights (Martin Stanford, etc) will get fed up with being sidelined and will look elsewhere!

    They always have to mess things around. The thing is, they dont change the bad things, they just change EVERYTHING, good and bad.

    As for Kay Burley on for 4 hours, thats 4 hours I wont be watching

    i think we should wait and see what happens on that week first before we start second guessing whats going to happen with the other presenters. They were testing using only one presenter a few weeks back, when Julie was presenting 3 hours in the afternoon on her own.

    On the new schedule Anna Botting is presenting at 7:00pm. so who is doing Sky News At Ten?

    #35225 Reply


    Im not cetain but i think Martin and Anna will present together in the evenings,the only certainty is Martin presents the 7.30 show and Anna the 7.00 show.I dont think the fact Anna’s name is in the info for News At 10 is significant because the weekend one still says its with Chris Roberts and Gillian Joseph.

    Its slightly all over the place.Looks as though Colin and Emma’s roles will be similar to Charlotte’s on Sunrise.

    Well at least I don’t feel so bad that I can’t get Sky News during term time anymore…
    Looks like it’ll be BBC News 24 for me from here on in.
