Sky News announces new programmes for 2022

Trevor Phillips Sky News Presenter

Sky News today announced a raft of new programmes for 2022.

Following the announcement that Political Editor Beth Rigby will host a new prime time interview show Beth Rigby Interviews… from 10th March, Sky News has also confirmed The Great Debate with Trevor Phillips will return from Monday 7th February at 9pm.

In addition to this, from early March, every Tuesday at 9pm, Trevor will try to find Common Ground between two protagonists with entrenched opinions on a topic in the news.

Sophy Ridge is due back from maternity leave in mid-March and will return to her regular slot of 08:30am every Sunday for her weekly political talk show Sophy Ridge on Sunday.

And later in the spring Sophy will host a new show The Take with Sophy Ridge at 9pm on Wednesdays.

The Take is designed to take a mid-week political pulse, using PMQs as a starting point to gauge how well the political parties are landing their points. As well as hearing from MPs, the show will also invite viewers to give their take on the political headlines.

New Sky News 9.00pm schedule from Spring:

Mondays – The Great Debate with Trevor Phillips
Tuesdays – Common Ground with Trevor Phillips
Wednesdays – The Take with Sophy Ridge
Thursdays – Beth Rigby Interviews…

“Sky News prides itself on its impartial journalism. We see it as our responsibility to present our viewers with dynamic, engaging and balanced programming, offering clarity in an uncertain world,” said John Ryley, Head of Sky News.

“These new programmes are designed to highlight the lively debate, discussion and opinion that is a vital part of the Sky News brand. From holding politicians to account to hearing directly from the people at the heart of the stories, our news organisation puts the British public at the heart of what we do.”
