Sky News is launching a new evening news show in July, in which members of the public can take part by phone, by webcam and by 3G mobile. We will be sending out a daily email which will let people know what subjects are coming up that evening.

So we?re going to get about 100 reminders a day telling us about the new programme and how to contact it. Great.

A Email from Martin Stanford reads:



Hello, this is Martin Stanford with news of a new mid-evening programme for Sky News.



From next Monday, 10th July, I will be anchoring a new look to evenings here at Sky and I welcome your contributions to the programme.



From 8pm each weeknight I'll be here with two hours of news and conversation. There will be all the elements you expect from Sky News: live reports on the people and places making the news each day and interviews with the key newsmakers and experts.



But this show will be going further to include your experiences and your reaction to the stories we cover. For several years our daytime shows have encouraged you to send us comments by email or text message. For my new show we are going to take that a bit further. We will be inviting some of our viewers to join us by their 3G video mobile or webcam to add their thoughts to the topic under discussion and to put their questions to the key decision makers.



To take part, you can stick to the usual email address (mailto:news@sky.com">news@sky.com) or text number (84501) but let us have your videomobile number or your user name for your webcam service and we will contact you.



We want you to take an active part in breaking news, by breaking the news that you see and telling us all about it.



I?ll also be keeping in touch with you during the programme. I?ll be updating our programme?s page on the Sky News web site and you?ll be able to contribute there too.



Plus, on Sky News active, you?ll be able to see exactly what is going on in the studio via camera 11, which will be live throughout the programme - even during commercial breaks.



I hope you can join me on Monday at 8pm!



Martin

Martin Stanford, not been harsh but I dont think its fair how he has his own shown weekdays between 8pm and 10pm, at the end of the day he will be working 6 days a week, and no wonder we dont see the other presenters like Allan King, Emma Crosby & Paula Middllehurst apart from weekends, & Gillian Joseph starting at 10pm until 12am waste of time. The schedule should have been 8pm until 12am, with various presenters back in the olden days

Sounds ok. But i'll have to watch before a judgement.



Hopefully they don't fill it up with 'contact us' promts and use active.
