The Daily Mirror is reporting that Dermot Murnaghan is joining Sky News, Apparently he's been offered a 7 figure sum.



If he is joining, where will he go? A seven figure sum presenter isn't going to do cover or weekend shifts.. so, with the new schedule full of top names does this mean one of them is about to give way? or are we going to see some double headed shows again?

Is Dermot suppose to present on Fridays? He hasn't done one full week yet.

More money than sense?



How does that expenditure fit with the virtual sidelining of many exisitng presenters who are equally if not more capable ?



There must be some departures, but the BBC won't need them after today's announcement of the streamlining of News.

They have all these presenters doing very little and then waste more money luring BBC presenters on big bucks.

They already have Colin doing nothing while Andrew Wilson, who has been a presenter for 2 minutes, gets his own show and now they go and bring in someone else who will obviously get some special role.



Sky News, run by complete idiots

Media are getting all excited by reductions in News staffing at the BBC - A pity it is only a cull and not genocide!



That was the good news but the bad news is that Sky will be contaminated by the biased beeboids deserting the sinking ship.

I cant remember but did Dermot present Breakfast when Julie was working there. Looks like Dermot will be presenting Sky News Today between 9am and 1pm, so could be carrying on presenting the news together.

Yes but Julie is leaving "to pursue other interests"
