    Sky have just made public that Ginny Buckley and Anna Jones from the BBC will join Sky News in September

    Ginny currently presents Holiday which is being axed and Anna anchors BBC News 24’s 9am to 1pm slot.

    I wonder how prominent they will be.

    Perhaps Lisa Aziz will not be the only one to jump before the revamp takes place later this year. There is a large number of female presenters with SKY. I wonder if Juliette, Anna, Emma, Viv, Sheila or Paula will play a big part in the new look channel.

    Well we can only assume that Anna will effectively replace Etchers and co-host the 9-12 ‘bit’. As for Ginny, perhaps she will be involved with the evening programming and something that is not ‘serious’ news.

    Sky seem to have loads of presenters, maybe a few more current ones will be leaving?

    I don’t think they will loose any! I think with the likes of JT, Kay and Julie doing there own type of shows and with Five. I think they need some others to fill gaps.

    I think Steve Dixon will go to Five, Full-time. Julie E will stay with Five and only present her own show.

    I think they might run thing a bit like this or should I say I hope:

    Sunrise 6am til 9am with Emmon & Lorna
    Programme 9am til 10am – Julie or Kay
    Today 10am til 1pm – Martin & Emma
    Afternoon 1pm til 4pm – Chris & Anna J
    Programme 4pm til 5pm – Julie or Kay
    Live @ 5pm til 8pm – Mark & Anna B
    News on the Hour 8pm til 10pm – 1 presenter – Viv or Juliette or Ginny
    Newsnight Style Programme 10pm til 12am – JT
    Midnight Hour 12am til 1am – Same as 8pm
    Through the Night 1am til 6am

    Through the Night 1am til 6am

    I don’t think that fits in with the plans announced.

    One thing is for sure I hope that Juliette, Anna and Chris Roberts will get decent roles in the new set up. They all bring life to the studio.

    As for Viv – well we are seeing less and less of her nowadays (dare I say it like Lisa has been off late) She was in at the beginning, so I don’t think she’ll vanish altogether.

    Anna Jones may have a morning co-anchor slot – but Ginny? I really don’t know. Perhaps she’ll be the new Emma. However – EC has a strong hard weight journalism background in finance. What serious roles has Ginny had?

    Forgive me – as I am not informed on this latest signing’s previous roles.

    Some good ideas but unfortunately it doesn’t fit with what Sky announced:

    Kay Burley: 12pm-2pm
    Jeremy Thompson: 5pm-6.30pm
    Julie Etchingham: 7pm-8pm

    i don’t think (or want) steve dixon to be permanent on five and not on sky. he’s certainly not said anything to me about that over the last few days, but i think he’s one of the more popular faces on sky at the moment and i know from the emails i get that a lot of SN viewers wouldn’t be too chuffed if he was moved away… myself included!!

    BE GENTLE FOLKS – PLEASE

    Sky have already announced Kay Burley: 12pm-2pm, Jeremy Thompson: 5pm-6.30pm, Julie Etchingham: 7pm-8pm

    So we only need to guess the blanks.

    Here’s my guess:
    6am – 9am Sunrise with Eamonn Holmes and Lorna Dunkley
    9am – 12pm (maybe Sky News Today with Martin Stanford)
    12pm – 2pm Program fronted by Kay Burley
    2pm – 5pm (Maybe rolling news with Mark Longhurst and Anna Botting)
    5pm – 6.30pm Program fronted by Jeremy Thompson
    6.30pm – 7pm (maybe Sportsline)
    7pm – 8pm Program fronted by Julie Etchingham
