NEW: From tomorrow, ‘The Papers’ on ‘@Breakfast’ will now be called ‘The Media Wrap’.

Image is bad quality, but rest assured you’ll see it in its full glory tomorrow

As has been already established, The Early Rundown will be presented on Fridays by Gamal Fahnbulleh.

I’ve also got some - albeit bad quality images of the title cards for the two new morning shows

MIGHT have some more stuff later.

I don’t like the inconsistent use of spaces in ‘Kay Burley@Breakfast’ - it needs either no space between Kay and Burley, or one either side of the @.

Not a fan of the ‘@ Breakfast’ name, feels very 90s. ‘At Breakfast’ would have been fine. I wonder if there’s really room for two breakfast shows that rely on brash, opinionated hosts. If anything, I think it might alienate loyal Sunrise viewers and send them to BBC Breakfast instead. Sky should be offering something different, not just a poor copy of GMB.

SJM’s Instagram stories show there is so much missed potential with the glass box. The atrium lit up in purple/blue actually looked really nice, instead we get the view of the corridor.

Thanks, that's going to bother me every time I see it now. 😁

So the paper review is coming back to the breakfast programme? If so, I really hope this isn't the return of inane guests such as Kevin Adams and Liz Kershaw.

Judging by what I saw, it’s definitely staying on weekends, and I think it’s coming back in the week.

Other than that she really likes dogs, I couldn’t tell you Kay’s opinion of anything. I couldn’t guess which way she votes, whether she’s leave or remain - she plays devils advocate in a sometimes clumsy fashion but I’d say she keeps her own views pretty well hidden.

loyal Sunrise viewers


Are there many left to alienate? I remember during Eamon's reign, Sunrise along with the Press Preview would dominate BARB's top 10 reporting every week without fail. These days, it rarely features - the last time was August for a couple of slots.

Surely 'The Papers@Breakfast' would have been more on brand.


Still think it is bonkers Sky have ditched probably there best known and certainly longest established brand, though then again they did the same with Live at 5.

Indeed bit surprised that for Mark Austin's slot they didn't bring back the 'Live At 5' name and call the 6pm hour 'The Newshour' instead. The 6 O'Clock News hour branding-wise has always felt the poor relation to the 5pm hour.

Initially, Ian King Live was at 6:30pm, so wouldn't have made sense to call the 6pm hour The Newshour. A Week In Interviews occupies the 6:30pm slot on Fridays still. But I agree with what you said...

Do you have any pictures of it lit up purple and blue please? Can’t seem to find it on her story?
