Most of the presenters are on holiday so people will pop on at different times in the next couple of weeks, according to Paul.

I really do not know what the hell is going on at Sky News. Its clear to me that there needs to be a change of leadership at the channel as the current one is not pushing Sk News forward to be the best Brittish News Channel, what would Rupert Murdock think if he was to see the channel as it is?



It seems they are trying to copy BBC news 24. It must have been unnerving for the leadership at Sky News when BBC News 24 overtook them in the ratings for the first time ever. However we do not need two BBC News 24's. The reason News 24 has been behind Sky for to long is that there show formats are boring and dull. Maybe a possible reason for more people putting on News 24 is due to Sky News always changing who is on, you never know who your going to get when you put the channel on (or so it seems in recent times)



Its obvious Sky do not want to hold onto views. When people put on News during the day the want rolling news, however in the evening they want somthing with a little bit more depth, as they already know the News. The reason they are putting Sky News on is because they want to know more about the news. If they did not they would be watching Eastenders. Its obvious Sky do not want to keep these people watching as they keep repeating the news every fifteen minutes, in the same order. After you have seen it once, your not going to watch it again, your going to put on BBC news 24 for a fresh look at the news, and as News 24 are not repeating it every fifteen minutes views are going to stay watching that channel for longer.



Ive drew up two ideal scheules for Sky News. The first one is a schedule that could be put into place with ease, the second is a dream schedule, one that would take a change in leadership to achive (or so i think)

you find Martin dull, and Colin 'monotony' Brazier some kind of god on earth? The mind boggles.he's Sky's best broadcaster by far and he hope he's just on leave or something, as their presenter stable is looking really weak nowadays.

I wouldn't say weak. I'd just say that potential has not been realised such as old pairings etc

Brazier is much better. Stanford is insomnia treatment Didnt they move him from his late slot due to poor ratings. Says it all, from his own slot to a share slot.

Even taking into account vicky23's usual excessive language, I thought that there was no doubt about Martin's position as Sky's No 1 presenter.He gives authority to any story or interview and, not surprisingly, he is dispatched to any major story which needs a weighty figure. (Exceptions being major sporty stories, where Jeremy Thompson is sent, or major lightweight stories, where Kay Burley is sent!)I have often watched a major story break and have compared interviews on the rival channels. On many occasions, Martin's interviews have put to shame those by the Paxmans, Snows and MacDonalds of the other channels. He is perceptive and persistent, but always polite. He is a vital part of Sky's hugely successful news channel.
