Sky News: Presenters & Rotas

Four high profile departures in the space of just a few months - wow. Can only imagine what staff morale is like at the moment, watching respected colleagues steam out the door at that rate.

The newer presenters like Sophy Ridge just don't cut it for me, so I could see me watching even less Sky News than I do at the moment which is already not very much having been a daily viewer in the past. And I know you don't tune into news purely for who is presenting, but it boils down to why you would ever pick Sky News over BBC News and the reasons for doing so are less and less each year. Plus, I dread to think how the likes of Ridge would cope with a major breaking news story.

I'm going to put it out there that I think Ryley has well and truly wrecked the channel over the last 10 years. It is unbelievable how much it has changed in that time and none of it has been for the better. And whilst his hand may be forced to a certain extent if his superiors are cutting his budget left right and centre, he has in my view fundamentally misunderstood what the Sky News audience wants on too many occasions to forgive.

Yet another sad day in Sky News' history under Ryley's watch.
