Ah yes, she's been at Sky since day 1, before any Sky /TVam collaboration then

Kay was one of the team on duty at TV-AM during the aftermath of the storms affected the Southern UK in 1987:

There were a few TVam News reporters who ended up staying at Sky because of the outsourcing - Liza Aziz and Geoff Meade are two that spring to mind


Wasn't Adam Boulton an ex-TV-am Political Editor?

Yes he was. I remember reading in (I Think) "Dished" that David Frost asked Murdoch not to lure Boulton away. Murdoch said he couldn't promise.

Here’s TVAM on the day after the 1987 General Election. Anne Diamond’s co-host is Adam Boulton. She mentions that there’s just been regional insets and the ITN new bulletin at the top of the hour.

Lester, jonO and Ne1L C gave kudos

Compare to The first ( or second depending on your view) gulf war in 1991 when TVAM went off the air and was replaced by ITN news which according to legend had to correct what TVAM had reported.

I do remember on here years ago someone linked to some old usenet posts from the time of people discussing TV-am's Gulf War coverage. "Someone shoot a tactical missile at TV-am" I seem to remember one of the posts said.

I don't think TV-am teamed up with ITN or had regional opts in 1987 or 1992. I guess it helped in 1983 when they were badly struggling to have that help in covering it, though.

From memory I think there were regional opts in 92

When Sky took on the news contract, was the news studio moved to the Sky studios or did Lisa Aziz stay at Camden Lock?

Nope. They moved the set to the Sky News studios. All the news presentation came from Sky.
Lisa Aziz came over on a motorbike to be on the sofa at the end of the last show.
