Sky News: Presenters & Rotas

Isabel Oakeshott and Sonia Sodha are in the former Andrew Pierce and Kevin Maguire slot on the Press Preview. Are Sky trying to find a permanent Monday replacement for them?

Unlike the wonderful debating between them and Anna Botting, this is a screech fest in comparison and always found them more like the Pledge panelists.

I wouldn't read too much in to last night, being a bank holiday.

Sky News presentation - New studio onwards

I would expect them to get the newsroom backdrop by changing what is on the green screen/background

The blue doesn't look too bad in that last screenshot, although the blotchy join between the white and the blue is weird.

I certainly hope that there is more than one presentation point.

They don’t need a new desk position, as they can change the screen graphics. The green screen angle is actually the other side of the camera shot, the screens are actually LED screens.


Is the whole wall made of LED screens or just the bit in the middle?


Looks like the the whole of both walls in that pic are screens. You can just make out the lines between the different panels (I think). Quite a clever look, and gives them flexibility to do 'big wall' stuff including the weather.

Sky News: Presenters & Rotas

Did I just hear Dominic Waghorn use the term 's*** hole' during a debate?

Does anyone know whether other news channels are using this term in their reports?

What sort of process is there in place for permitting the use of such words?


I expect as it fits Sky News' incessant anti-Trump agenda it's allowed.

Don't talk wet.

Sky News presentation - New studio onwards

One of the problems with having all these recorded programmes in the schedule is they are going to have to go until 10pm now before they can bring any updates on the resignation of Damian Green

What is to update though - the resignation is done, the reasons have been covered in depth in recent weeks and any replacement won't be named until tomorrow at the earliest.

The breaking news alerts on people's mobiles and tablets will prompt them to switch on Sky News. After receiving that alert, people may be slightly confused to see a 60 minute long recorded programme.
