GB NEWS UNVEIL AFTERNOON SCHEDULE CHANGES

GB News has revealed a raft of new programmes and schedules changes to its weekday afternoon schedule.



The schedule sees Colin Brazier and Alex Phillips reportedly leave the channel, according to reports on social media, with new programmes for Gloria De Piero and Patrick Christys, with Mark Longhurst joining the broadcaster.



Former Sky News presenter Mark Longhurst will join existing GB News presenter and former Labour MP Gloria De Piero to co-present a new weekday afternoon show, GB Newsday.


Gloria will continue fronting The Real Me and Life and Times on the channel.



Patrick Christys will move from weekday mornings to late afternoons to host 'GB News Live', replacing Colin Brazier in the drivetime slot. Christys will continue to present Friday Night Feast weekly on Friday evenings.


Regular GB News contributor Calvin Robinson will present a new show, Calvin’s Common-Sense Crusade, every Sunday.



On The Money will continue with Liam Halligan, who will also make appearances on other programmes across the schedule.


Conservative MPs and married couple Esther McVey and Philip Davies will both present another programme on Fridays, in addition to their existing Saturday morning programme.



The Telegraph's Olivia Utley will join the outlet's political team in October, joining Political Editor Darren McCaffrey and Political Correspondent Tom Harwood.


Editorial Director Michael Booker said: "Our strength as a small start-up is our ability to innovate and move quickly to stay ahead, keep growing and keep listening to our audience. Our new programming also leverages our growing investment in newsgathering across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland."



GB News is available on Sky channel 515.
