“I’m delighted to be joining GB News,” said Colin.
“It will be an important punctuation mark in the evolving story of news broadcasting in Britain and I’m thrilled to be there at the start.

“I will treasure my time at Sky, working alongside some brilliant journalists but GB News is an irresistible new challenge, a chance to build an innovative news channel alongside some of British journalism’s most trusted names.”
