Sky is going to find itself losing a lot of good presenters, its an insult to the likes of Sam Simmonds and Colin Brazier to do 2 minute news reports

I'm guessing she's inside court, its likely Ursula was inside court yesterday. They'll probably do one day in, one day out.

I don't GET it?!

Why is there a bar across the top of the screen?

Why have they only got Martin Stanford presenting for half an hour a day?

Why do I care what the most clicked stories on the internet are?

Why why why have they abandoned the 2 presenter format???



Is it my imagination or is News 24 now just a better funded version of what Sky News used to be?

It's hardly an insult to Samantha, previously she only done the odd overnight shift.

It makes me laugh, a few months ago Colin was working from 9am to 5pm, last week was doing Live at 5 and now he is only fit to do about 30mins of air time per day.



Sky have messed up, in a few months when they decide they are going to change it all round again they may find they dont have enough presenters to do a 2 presenter line up again, I cant see these people sticking around to do so little
