Andrew Neil quits GB News after just eight shows

2 min read

Insiders claimed Mr Neil’s exit from GB Information could pave the way for him to seem as commentator for rival broadcasters. Sources said he was currently booked to surface as a panellist on BBC One’s Dilemma Time on Thursday night time. 

Tom Harrington, an analyst at Enders Evaluation, claimed he now envisioned GB Information to sharpen its emphasis on correct-leaning journalism in a bid to shore up its audience figures. 

“[The move to the right] is already happening. The guest they are bringing on air, and the point Andrew Neil has still left is a response to that. 

“Right now, there are probably 20,000 or 30,000 people looking at it, which is absolutely nothing. That is why they have to move toward an extreme to have some form of effects and carry on to be talked about.

“Because the a lot more you go into the centre, the a lot more you occur up versus the BBC, ITV and Sky Information, which chronicle news and have top-quality generation budgets.”

In an e mail announcing the departure to workers, Mr Frangopoulos stated Mr Neil had signed a multi-yr contract and the organization hoped he would remain longer. 

“Andrew helped established our tone, our function, even our launch date,” he included. “He has been integral to each individual key programming and choosing selection.”

In its official statement, GB Information mentioned: “Andrew is without question one particular of the best journalists and interviewers in this state.

“GB Information thanks him for his 12 months of leadership, knowledge and suggestions and we want him properly.”
