GB NEWS TO LAUNCH NEW POLITICAL PROGRAMMES

GB News is to launch four dedicated politics programmes. The channel will also hire more journalists for its political team.


The following three programmes will launch in the coming weeks, each airing every weekday:


The Briefing: AM with Tom Harwood

The Briefing: Lunchtime with Gloria De Piero

The Briefing: PM with Darren McCaffery



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.
