On Wednesday 7th April, Sky News will launch the first daily prime time news show dedicated to climate change - the single biggest global issue of our generation.
Hosted by Sky News presenter Anna Jones, ‘The Daily Climate Show’ will showcase the work of Sky News correspondents both here and abroad as they investigate how global warming is changing our landscape and changing how we all live our lives. It will also highlight solutions to the crisis and show viewers small changes they can make that will make a big difference.
John Ryley, Head of Sky News said: “There has never been a more urgent need to report accurately on the climate crisis and to bring this story to new audiences. In this critical year for action ahead of COP26, The Daily Climate Show from Sky News will feature forensic data-journalism, expert analysis and eye-witness reporting and look at the solutions to climate change.”
COP26 President Alok Sharma said: “As we prepare for COP26 in Glasgow I’m delighted to see how Sky, a Principal Partner and Media Partner for COP26, is informing and engaging its viewers about the climate crisis, and the need for urgent action, through the Daily Climate Show. Businesses, including media organisations, have a key part to play on the road to Glasgow and in helping us all build back greener.”
The 15-minute programme will run on the Sky News website and app, on YouTube and Twitter and is broadcast at 6.30pm and 9.30pm Monday to Friday. A weekly digital edition will be published across all of Sky News’ social platforms, including Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram.
A companion podcast ‘Climatecast’ will go into more depth on issues covered in the week and a “digital dashboard” will give Sky News viewers and consumers a live real time minute to minute view of how power is being generated and used, and how close the planet is from reaching a potentially catastrophic temperature increase.
