Sarah Jane has posted on Instagram from the Glassbox (rehearsing), looks like it will be a similar set up to Kay's show but with the desk in the 11am-2pm position.


Another stupid decision if they stick with it. why do we want to see that boring shot when you can have her stood in front of the giant screen like Kay does?. I also think they should have called it "Afternoon with Mee".. Clearly it took them all of 5 seconds to come up with that original name of "The Sarah Jane Mee Show" which is quite a mouthful and 5 minutes to make the boring title card

I do wonder if this is Kay starting to wind down now . She has presented up to 3.5 hours programmes on a regular basis and longer during the day when a big story has been going on. I can't see her coming back at 11am once Adam finishes All Out Politics when he could just carry on before Sarah takes over at 12 or 1pm

I do agree that Sunrise has become stale over recent months. Them getting rid of the paper reviewers but still talking about the papers themselves I didn't think was a worth while change. I am glad the sport is getting removed from Kay Burley @ Breakfast though as its pretty much just the same thing rammed down our throats hour after hour. Id like to see them reduce the sports updates through the day too.

Do we really want 4 hours of politics every morning when a lot of people myself included have become totally sick of hearing politicians spouting the same lines on both sides day in day out for 3/4 years now

I always liked to watch Kay in the afternoons but this year I've not really been watching much Sky News generally. I catch the last press Preview at the end of the night but its pretty much the same thing night after night and of course I watch if there is a big event going on. The general output of the channel just feels meh its not as engaging as it used to be and when its been pretty much the same story for 3 years we need a bit of that.

A missed opportunity to call it "Mee Time".

What is clear is that SJM isn't going to be another Kay Burley. She's a straight delivery presenter who can give a solid performance, so the rumoured changes to the afternoon show reflect how she'll deliver that bulletin.

It’s a shame to see the Sunrise brand go. The only brand to stand the full 30 year history of Sky News.

Indeed it was because of Sunrise that the Sunrise franchise had to be renamed to GMTV back when it launched in 1993.

I do understand Sky’s logic... but it’s still a shame to see the brand go.
