He has been doing the sports reports lately, probably because they have some presenters out at the WC

I've never liked Faye. Why are they putting her on air at all?

There are only two presenters who I do not like. One of them is homophobic and the other is up her own arse.

Apart from that, I am okay with the presenters, including Faye. She is simply new to this ball game and is in a VERY downbeat atmosphere at the moment.

Sadly, the two who I don't like are still there. That along with Juliette's exit has also left me plain disgusted and fed up of a news channel that is becoming a joke amongst the industry.

I doubt the new leadership and scheduling will do anything to prove me wrong!!

Did Sky News need to move into a new studio? They have admitted they messed up changing the format so could they have stayed in the old studio?

Lucy worked until 12.30 and then they showed CBS for half an hour and then they had some new guy on for an hour and then he was replaced by Georgie Bingham. How can they let presenters like Ginny and Juliette go and then take on new presenters for nights?

Good point, I thought there were laws preventing that sort of thing. Still, I'm sure Sky lawyers know what they're doing.
