Sky News Tonight...or Overnight is much better again in the summertime than last autumn...

From good (Samantha Simmonds)..... to better (Faye Barker).....to Simply the Best (Lukwesa Burak)....



They all do the NEWS with very kindness and well-con-sidered, especially the last one, Lukwesa Burak!

She's OK but seemed pretty uncomfortable talking to the Fox lady in the early hours. I don't suppose she expected to be having to do that.

Faye Barker isn't very good bless her, monotonous is an understatement. The overnights are not a patch on what they were before the re-launch last year, a real shame. As for Samantha Simmonds and Lukwesa Burak, they are quite good.

What's going on with overnights ? Where has Lukwesa gone ? This week's presenters either look bored or are difficult to understand. Don't say they've made more changes. I agree with classeyham - she's the best presenter. I miss her dimples !

Can't stand Lukwesa, Faye and Samantha are ok, I'll need to watch Orla more and where are the male presenters?

Yer know, I'm beginning to think that's the problem with Sky News, there's no consistancy, it's all over the place. The presenters are on for about 5 minutes then it's cut to sport, or it's cut straight to commercials, two minutes later it's bang, whether and associate commercials again.



It comes across as sloppy and un watchable when there are effectively so many what I would call disruptions. The viewer just about gets into a story when wham, the schedule hammers off to 15 minutes of sport.



It's tiresome to watch, ITV 24 had it much much better, shame it cost them too much.
