I no longer watch Sky News Overnights, they have really made a mess of it.

Bring back Gordon Radley and a bit of stability back to the nights and I may tune back in. Alistair will do fine for now!

That's my thoughts exactly. Although I like Juliet Errington alright she is at the end of the day a reporter. Martin Popplewell I thought was a reporter too but that confuses me. You're right Robbbo the last two weekends have seen pre-recordings of the midnight hour repeated. It's a mess and like I said Sky News should realize that 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'. Gordon Radley did a great job and I think they should bring him back to stabilize the overnights. He and Michael Watkins were doing a good job alongside the others who also worked alongside them. Until things improve then I'll be watching either Karin or Alistair on News 24, or O'Reilly and co at Fox.

Good to see Brian get to present from News Centre. Is this his first broadcast from there? Good to get cross-over of personnel. A British Sky News reporter covered holidays for SNI during the summer-time. I'm sure this is benificial. Wondering if Brian has left SNI? But best of luck whatever his future is.

Any ideas why he went on to do the first hour of Sunrise with Emma (looking very uncomfortable, I thought)? Steve Dixon showed up at 7 o'clock, his hair a bit more ruffled than usual. Car wouldn't start in the heavy frost?

No mention of his name @ 1am. Do they normally name the newscaster on overnight?

Angela Corpe is on the overnight tonight.



Angela joins a line of reporters to take up (temporary) presenting. Samantha Simmonds, Juliet Errington and Brian Daly have also presented the overnight in recent weeks

They HAVE to get Radley back. We need some stability on the overnights, and soon!

I know me and Glenn, keep mentioning it, but the overnights are a JOKE.



I used to watch everynight, and I believe Glenn is a regular overnight viewer, but the shift has gone to the dogs, I will say it again, Bring Back Radley!

I thought brian did very well across the water It was good to see that S.N is making the most of their talent - fair play to him for doing so well, i can only imagine that it must be very nerve-racking to present in front of such a wide audience as S.N! Keep up the good work!

Sam Simmonds is presenting the overnight with the light-beams as her background - Chris and Gillian were still on after midnight. So is this a new thing for the overnights or just a temporary thing.



It's a nice change.

I think Chris and Gillian probably stayed on for the Tony Blair press conference. As for the background behind Samantha, perhaps this could be what they're gonna do from now on so they can switch the videowall off between 1am and World News? Like how they did it in the old studio.

I think you're right Glenn with the press conference, because there was someone else in the studio commenting as well as the presenters. Although i could swear the video wall was on all night one night last week with Georgie on the overnight......

I hope she gets a chance during the day, Samantha and Faye have had the chance and now Lukwesa, a far better presenter in all areas over the above two, should get that same chance. Come on Sky!

Miranda Schunke is presenting this morning.



Is this the first time she has done so?
