Problems on Sky News just now, seems like the wrong Ian King Live was put into playout.
Kimberly previewed the Ian King Live repeat before the break at 1:30. Ian King Live (presented by Emma Crosby) started with the headlines but then after the headlines it was just Emma chatting to producers/preparing off air for 10 seconds then we then cut to black screen before another ad break and now it’s back to Kimberly in Studio 6 who is seemingly filling now until 2am now with other news.

So Ian King Live without Ian King and not live.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

Well quite actually why they’re repeating Ian King Live 12 hours after it’s happened I’m not sure. When it was at 6:30pm it was kind of still relevant with less business stories breaking after 5pm but anything could happen in the city between 1:30pm-5:00pm when trading is still on meaning repeating the show at 1:30am seems a little odd.

Just a small and slightly off-topic curiosity: Given our earlier conversations about the Sky News campaign to establish a General Election Leaders' Debate Commission, it may be of interest that Peter Bone's Private Members' Bill proposing the same thing is up for its second reading in the Commons on Friday. Its first reading was back in 2017, so pre-dates the campaign.

Whoever is running the channel tonight should be shot.

How on earth did they manage to miss the David Liddington Commons speech updating the Brexit talks.

Almost no coverage from key correspondents - just Jon Craig doing a (very good) few lives in Central Lobby

Very poor.

Yeah but they’re going to be broadcasting from the bottom of the ocean next week though so it’s all good.

Whilst the paper reviews on Sunrise do become very tiresome, to axe them completely I think is (or could prove to be) a mistake. They're not needed every hour however.

Brilliant news, in my opinion. Sunrise has been relying on this format for years and its doing them no favours.

Great to hear that they're using 'experts' for now, trying to elevate the level of conversation slightly above the insight from Liz Kershaw and Chris Akabusi.

I posted a few months back about shifting Sunrise into a real 'hard news' alternative against BBC Breakfast and GMB:

I think with Sunrise it might be worth going for a more politics/business focus, making it a more hard news alternative to Breakfast and GMB, who are usually busy interviewing zookeepers or discussing Love Island almost two months after the final.

Maybe ditch the 20 minute paper review and swap it with a Morning Joe-style news discussion, perhaps with Sky correspondents or political analysts. A dedicated business presenter providing bulletins throughout the show also might be an idea.

The studio is also terribly suited to the slot. The cold and clinical feel that the uninspired background gives is just dull more than anything. The show just feels like its broadcasting from a very poor local news studio. I know the studio space isn't huge but as we've seen today with the BBC's Westminster studio, it's more than possible to build a good set in a small studio. One design that comes to mind is NBC's 'Studio N5' in Washington.

Seen in use for Today, the desk is able to be lit in different colours, something similar could really add some colour to Sunrise which is needed at the moment. The wood effect on the desk also adds some character, unlike the clinical grey square we have at the minute. The glass box also features wood effect flooring so it wouldn't be terribly off-brand for Sky.

I've added some other pictures of the NBC set in the spoiler below
