GB NEWS TO LAUNCH DEDICATED SPORTS AND MONEY SHOWS

GB News is to launch a dedicated weekend programme for Sporting news, with a new finance programme running every weekday.



GB Sports will air at 9am every Saturday and Sunday. The hour long programme will be presented by CNN's Rhiannon Jones, and promises a daily round up of all the sporting action from across the UK, as well as guests, interviews and debates.


Presented by GB News' Economics Editor, Liam Halligan, 'On The Money' will air every weekday at 1pm and promises your daily dose of economics, business and consumer news, views and discussion.



These two programmes are in addition to the three previously announced Briefing programmes:

The Briefing: AM with Tom Harwood (Weekdays at 9am)

The Briefing: Lunchtime with Gloria De Piero (Weekdays at 12pm)

The Briefing: PM with Darren McCaffery (Weekdays at 3:30pm)


In addition, The Briefing: PMQs will be a weekly special report on Prime Minister's Questions. It will begin on Wednesday 8th September and run every Wednesday when Parliament is sitting. The new programmes will feature interviews, debate and analysis.


Chief Executive Officer at GB News, Angelos Frangopoulos, said: "Politics really matters to communities we serve and our viewers tell us they like our fresh approach, especially the way we genuinely listen to all sides...



"As a start-up we set out to shake things up and that's exactly what we're doing. After just eight weeks on air, we're evolving rapidly, learning from our audience, and growing fast. There's a lot more to come."


GB News is available on Sky channel 515.
