Don't know where to put this, but I was looking at the IRN website and found out you can actually call a number to listen to the latest hourly IRN/Sky News Radio bulletin as heard on commercial radio stations. 65p per minute + operator charge, so I'm not sure who it's aimed at (0906 812 1290)


It isn't a new thing if that's what you're getting at...

Sorry Smile

Just looked at this properly and am now surprised that the charge has only gone up by 5p in the last fifteen years.

Noticed a few reports from Sky News have made it to MSNBC. It appears they just pulled the package straight from Sky's server as the reporter tagged out as Sky News.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

I'd be a little surprised if they pulled straight from the Sky production server (unless Sky and MSNBC are being very good at sharing rights metadata through their production platforms) - though I wouldn't be surprised if they were file transfers.

If that was the only reason why it was currently not being used at the very most it'd be off air for a few days followed by a deep clean. There is no reason to believe covid-19 survives on surfaces long term.


They found it alive and well 17 days later on some surfaces on that cruise ship

I don't know if the article has changed since you posted that link, but there is a fairly large disclaimer at the top which contradicts the idea that it was "alive and well" ("Live, infectious virus was NOT found.")

Ha, no I posted the link from a WhatsApp message I was sent a few days ago from a friend. Ok, fair enough then!

Is Sky News recorded overnight at the moment.... it seems like there is a double DOG. Usually get it with the paper review overnight but have been getting it all the time for the past few days
