Two words for the Sky News election set...
Absolutely Stunning.

RTE News set up:




RTÉ will have an extended Prime Time covering the GE with David McCullough in Dublin & Miriam O'Callaghan in Belfast.





The studio sound coming out from Bryan Dobson is not great at all tbf. There is an echo heard from the London set.

They probably have their setup located at their London office at Grays Inn Road where both ITV & Channel 4 are having their coverage.

Loving the Sky News studio and graphics, an excellent job by the team there.

They've re-imagined what the Sky News Centre would have looked like if they had built it in 2019 - and it looks fantastic.

The box is cold, clinical and sterile - but this temporary set in the Sky Central foyer somehow has bags of energy, impresses with scale and oozes authority.

This is how Sky News should look.

Looking at the wide shot into the commercial break on Sky News, it might be just me, but it felt very American pres style.

Sky News doing a second programme on social media, possibly from inside the box?
Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.

Looks like it's near the box. But not in it. A sort of Sky equivalent of the outside source balcony.

Sky's studio looks good. My only minor criticism is that it feels quite empty - three people in a big room rather than a hive of election activity.

I'm most impressed by their AR so far.

I will be watching ITV's coverage very soon. I am hoping the big ITV News logo seen in the atrium is used for some of the graphics tonight. The quality of ITV's coverage in the last GE two years ago was absolutely brilliant. Tom Bradby did so well that night in 2017. I hope that some of that magic will be rekindled again for tonight's election coverage. I cannot wait what they say about the results if Boris does not get his way in terms of the what the exit poll & how the election results will pan out for the rest of the night. I hope that they will do some justice because they are able to talk about it in great detail & quality. Maybe they could beat the BBC's ratings in the UK while being ahead of them while overtaking them along with Channel 4 & Sky.

Sky Central looks stunning. so much more impressive than the usual box or tiny Westminster studio

Music is awful though. why they replaced the dramatic authoritative music for that I have no idea

It's not just LBC doing an election programme, tiny DAB station Union Jack has an alternative election show with character Lucy Leeds, played by Jack FM newsreader Emma Kirwan.

Odd case of the disappearing ticker on the YouTube version of Sky News International
