COMEBACK KID: Alastair Stewart OBE Joins GB News

JOURNALIST Alastair Stewart OBE is joining GB News to host a weekend news and current affairs programme.

Alastair is Britain’s longest-serving news anchor, having presented the news in both local and national television for nearly 45 years.

He was one of the main newsreaders at ITV News for more than 35 years, anchoring News at Ten and providing commentary for special programmes such as royal weddings, elections, budgets and State Openings of Parliament.

Among countless major stories in his career, he reported the 1980s miners’ strike, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the first Gulf War live from Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. He was the first British journalist to cover the liberation of Kuwait.

Alastair was Washington correspondent for ITV News, and moderated the United
Kingdom’s first ever debate between prime ministerial candidates David Cameron,
Gordon Brown and Nick Clegg ahead of the 2010 general election.

He left ITV News 14 months ago and has since published articles for The Spectator and the news website Reaction, as well as being a presenter for talkRADIO.

His awards include the Royal Television Society’s Presenter of the Year Award and an OBE for his extensive charity work as well as his services to television.

“GB News is a unique opportunity to broaden the spectrum, challenge the groupthink and shift away from a predictable agenda in news and debate,” he said. “I can’t wait to get stuck in and tackle issues that really matter to people across the United Kingdom.”

Director of News and Programmes John McAndrew said: “Alastair is hugely respected across the country and we are honoured to have a journalist of his calibre and experience on board. He will anchor GB News in more ways than one.”
