SKY NEWS TO LAUNCH THE GREAT DEBATE

Sky News have announced a new weekly debating show, The Great Debate, hosted by Trevor Phillips.



Every Monday evening, Sky presenter Trevor Phillips will address a different single topic with a panel of news-makers, opinion-formers and experts to get a deeper understanding of the most important subject of the week.



Joined by a virtual audience, questions will be put to the biggest names to tackle the issues dominating the week's news agenda.


Sky tease: "At a time when sound bites rule and the frenzy of social media drives the news cycle forward at dizzying speed, it's more important than ever to examine the issues that are shaping our world in depth and in detail."



The Great Debate will feature topics that put viewers at the heart of the debate on issues they care about, whether that be the environment, the economy, immigration, or something else.


The Great Debate will be broadcast live simultaneously on Sky News and Sky Showcase every Monday from 27 September at 9pm.
