TalkTV presenter Tom Newton Dunn will not be returning to the channel.

“I’m very grateful to News UK for giving me so many opportunities with The Sun, the Times titles, and the move to broadcast. Helping to launch Times Radio and then a new TV channel 18 months ago has been a huge privilege. It feels now is the right time though for me to move on,” said Tom.

“An incredible year in politics on both sides of the Atlantic is coming up and that has created a new opportunity, which I’m looking forward to. I also hope to keep contributing to News UK titles.

“I’m going to take a well-needed break first and concentrate on recharging the batteries. It’s been a busy couple of decades. I look forward to the next challenge.”

Media Guido reported Newton Dunn was suspended for inappropriate behaviour in mid-June. News UK maintained that he was just on leave.

He first joined The Sun in June 2004 as defence editor and then spent 11 years as political editor from 2009.

Newton Dunn become a presenter and chief political commentator at the newly-formed Times Radio in summer 2020.

He moved to TalkTV ahead of its launch, presenting an hour-long weekday news update called The News Desk. The programme was switched from its original 7pm timeslot to 10pm and renamed First Edition.
