‘BRITAIN’S FOX NEWS’
The new channel aims to attract right-wing viewers fed up of the biased leftie Sky and BBC.
Since Sky News’ takeover by NBC News parent group Comcast – the former news heavyweight lost thousands of viewers and its reputation for unbiased news.
Sky has been in decline for many years and the UK market has a huge appetite for a right-wing outlet to take on the left-wing rhetoric in the broadcast media.
The new network is headed by ex-BBC political pundit Andrew Neil and has confirmed anchors such as Dan Wootton, Alistair Stewart, Kirsty Gallacher and Simon McCoy.
Ex-Soccer Aid host, broadcaster and journalist Kirsty Gallacher will launch GB News as part of the new channel’s breakfast team.
Kirsty was one of the main faces of Sky Sports and Sky Sports News for almost 20 years and has anchored various news programmes including Channel 4’s morning show RI:SE.
The channel has been blasted by Leftie media luvvies with the BBC’s Nick Robinson and former Channel 5 talk-show host Mathew Wright attacking the channel.
Wright claimed GB News will never attract more viewers than The Wright Stuff, and predicts it will be off air “within a year”.
In a fiery exchange on Twitter, in which the shock jock branded Politicalite a “moron”, Wrighty claimed: “it’ll be gone in a year” after news broke that Sun stalwart Dan Wootton was quitting Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp to work for the hottest network to hit British TV in years.
The Sun Showbiz King hit back telling Politicalite: “He is truly awful!”
He added on Wrights hypocrisy at the new right-wing channel: “He was happy to work for Murdoch on talkRADIO!”
The channel has also signed news-heavyweights such as Alistair Stewart and Simon McCoy along with local talent not seen on mainstream UK news before.
