Anyone watch Sky.com News online tonight? When it finished and Sky News TV went to an ad break, Charlotte gave the answers to the news quiz and said a special goodbye to those watching online. Then it showed a bit of Helen Fospero getting ready to go live. She was having trouble pronouncing Patarkatsishvili



They often do this now. It's proving to be quite interesting. Usually it's either Anna Jones or Samantha Simmonds doing the 8-10 slot and they always seem more concerned with their appearance more than anything else!

Just noticed that Andy Moore is on BBC NEWS. As he been there long? - That means Amanda Walker is Sky's only correspondent for the West of the country.

Helen Fospero fronting News at Seven tonight. That was a surprise to say the least, but I'm guessing both Annas are off.



If Helen is doing 10-12 later, no idea who's going to do News, Sport and Weather. Maybe Samantha Simmonds.



I imagine we're starting to see more of Helen on Sky News due to the changes at Five News with Natasha joining. She's fairly good, but personally I prefer Faye Barker who's been doing nights.



As it's the RTS Television Journalism Awards tomorrow it seems likely that Botting and Jones will be off again, so I wouldn't be surprised to see Martin Popplewell covering.

Chris Roberts is doing the 15 minute bulletins tonight. Should have known, he gets all the crappy slots on Sky even though he is one of their best news presenters. In fact he is my favourite.

I dont see how Sky News can do and Ipswich murders 'Special' at 8pm when they have been reporting on nothing else all afternoon, hardly going to be a special, its more of the same. They even missed the ad breaks

I have seen no weather, sports news, business news or ads until just now and if you go on active they have about 5 screens of it on there. The US elections havent had a mention and neither has the Di inquest. Its always Skys way, drop everything and just report on the big one but does it really merit such coverage? How can they do a 'special' on it when its been nothing but reports on it all afternoon?



The other day they cut Imran Khan off mid sentence just to show that slimey Egyptian Al Fayed turning up at court, like that was some major event

They then had Charlotte pop up after 6 to do 2 brief news reports, then back to Anna Bottox then at 7 Helen Fospero pops up for half an hour and then Martins on
