Stephen Dixon's tattooed arm on display this morning. Is that a first for a regular news anchor in the UK?


Any pics of the tattoo?

Check his personal Twitter that he links to in his work Twitter. His ankle is occasional seen.

Kate McCann from the Daily Telegraph is joining Sky News's political team. She's not a stranger to tv, being a talking head on Daily/Sunday Politics, The Papers and Press Preview.

Very good move. But you would have thought that either the political editor or their deputy would be the person to present the Sunday morning political interview show. I’m a big fan of Sophy Ridge but feel she’s undermined as presenter slightly by not being more prominent on the channel.

Tom Larkin also joining political team and Tamara Cohen is back soon as well.

Anyone leaving?

That’s a significant increase in their on air political reporting team. A couple of years ago after Glen Oglaza and Peter Sepencer left they were down to 4. Now I make it an on air team of 9. Think that’s too much even considering the level of political coverage today.

Not on here much these days but would just like to acknowledge what an incredible job Faisal Islam has done as Political Editor over the last couple of years. Especially following in Adam Boulton’s footsteps who had been in the role for over 20 years. It was a brave move in appointing him considering he didn’t come from a Political reporting background but he is the shining light at Sky these days.

Considering she's only really just returned from maternity leave, I think they're slowly re-introducing her back into the schedule. She did some cover last week in addition to her Ridge on Sunday shifts, which include a Friday location day.

Could well be because someone is soon moing on.

There was talk of Jon Craig retiring last year.
