Sky News’ Political Correspondent, Glen O’Glaza, has left the company.

The news comes just a month after Peter Spencer retired from Sky News, reducing the channel’s on-air political team to just four members – Editor Adam Boulton, Deputy Editor Joey Jones, Chief Correspondent Jon Craig and Correspondent Sophy Ridge.

Glen, who joined Sky News as a Political Correspondent in 2003, said this morning:

Glen was formerly a Senior Correspondent at Independent Television News (ITN), for its flagship Channel 4 News programme, reporting from over 30 countries, including the United States, the former Soviet Union and countries in the Middle East.

He has covered the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Velvet Revolution from Czechoslovakia, the fall of the Soviet Union from Moscow and spent a month with the Kurds of northern Iraq after their rebellion towards the end of the first Gulf War.

Colleagues and fellow journalists have sent their best wishes to Glen via Twitter..
