Claudia-Liza Armah is to join 5 News as presenter of the 6.30pm bulletin from the new year.

The Sky News Presenter will replace Matt Barbet, who announced he is leaving 5 News next week.

“It’s been an incredible decade, and I’ve been privileged to spend a lot of it fronting @5_News, witnessing the World change,” said Matt.

“It’s time to make my own change though, and next week I will present my last 5 News Tonight. New things in the New Year.”

Armah, who has previously worked at London Live, ITV and the BBC over a ten-year career, said: “I’ve long admired 5 News and how it puts people at the heart of the story.

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining the talented and creative team, particularly as we chart the largely unknown political landscape for our viewers.”

Sian Williams will continue to front the 5pm bulletin.
