It looks like SSN has followed Sky News in cutting back on presenters,instead of 2 pairs working from 7-10pm and 10-midnight,the first pair are working right the way through

I thought it was different on Monday cos of the world cup squad naming,jim and kelly did 10 am to 4 and then georgie and dave did 4 to 8 and the next pair did 8 to midnight but it was the same on Tuesday aswell.I have seen on here about the Sky News boss quitting and the head of Sky One has gone aswell so its cut backs all round

no there's no cutbacks - it looks like they've just introduced a new shift in mid morning. I was off sick yesterday and i think this was the schedule:



6am-10am - Mike and Alex

10-1pm - Dave Clark and Milly Clode

1-4 Julian and Clare Tomlinson

4-8 David and Georgie

8-12am - Jim and Kelly



Pretty strange moves - up till now Julian Waters has been doing evenings since the channel started.

Yesterdays shift is the same as today except Paul Boardman is on the 8pm shift with Kelly.



Maybe this is the Summer Shifts or changed altogether

Yeah I didnt see the 1-4 slot the other day,makes sense really,that 2 hour slot at the end of the day was pointless

Has anyone seen Alex on at any other time than 6-10? and until this new schedule were David and Georgie on at any other time than 3-7. They seemed to be the only ones with regular hours. Probably will still have regular hours. All the others appear to be in a big m ixing bowl.

They usually change at the end of the footy season,Kelly usually does Sat and Sun afternoons as there will be no soccer saturday,unless shes doing the golden league athletics.Its nothing drastic,its just a tweak of the hours to get rid of that pointless 2 hour slot at the end

As far as I know, with the exception of David Jones and Georgie Thompson, all presenters have flexible schedules - for example Kelly may pop up for the Morning Report one day and then be on duty for Through the Night the next. As a result, I wouldn't think that Julian will stay with the afternoon team permanently.
