I'm surprised Ridge on Sunday is continuing through August. I missed today's edition thinking it's on summer break until Sep 1.

I think it's a good move by Sky, it means they're effectively the only political programme on air at all throughout the summer, perhaps giving them the opportunity to pick up a few Marr fans.

What was really surprising was that the Sunday after Johnson became PM, Ridge was still the only Sunday politics programme. You'd have thought Marr would have done an extra programme.

Niall Paterson is a formidable presenter. Tremendous versatility and, in my very honest opinion, should be and could be the next principal anchor at Sky News.

Is Kay Burley still at the channel? Don’t hear much about her these days here on TVF or elsewhere online. Is she still considered as the “go to” anchor for big events? Or has Mark Austin now taken that mantle.

Agree on Niall. If anyone was going to be poached by a rival, I think it’d be him - top dog at the BBC of the future.

Kay is the go-to for location presenting that requires being amongst random members of the public. She’s been quite well behaved of late. Don’t really see Mark outside of his show.

Echo what others have said - Niall is superb. You know it’ll be a solid newscast when he’s involved and he’s particularly good on the political stuff.

I have to praise Kimberly Leonard too - I remember finding her delivery a bit cold when she started at Sky News but she’s much more watchable these days
