Freelancers usually work the overnight shift as its not essential to have a well-known regular Sky presenter. They work on a shift-to-shift basis and usually have other presenting/reporting jobs at other stations.

Hardly freelancers?, David Foster's been presenting for years, and Allan King's been their since the beginning.

Well Sheila has a son, so she might choose to work part-time. You can be pretty flexible if your a presenter.

I couldn't say with any authority, but I do believe that she is. This is based on her 'random' appearances.

Hmm, I'm not aware of her doing over night shifts. She has done weekend shifts though.

I'm quite surprised to see that David Foster is a freelancer. He is quite regular isn't he? And he is usually the regular stand in, along with Julliett Foster, for Michael Wilson.
