Sky News has announced who’s taking over from Eamonn Holmes as lead host of its flagship breakfast show, Sunrise. And, as you’ve probably already worked out by reading the headline, it’s Sarah-Jane Mee.
The experienced Sky Sports presenter will be joined by Jonathan Samuels, who is a senior correspondent for Sky News. Sports will be covered by Jacquie Beltrao and weather will be presented by Isobel Lang and Nazaneen Ghaffar.
Here's a bit about Mees for the uninitiated - she made a start as a runner for Sky Sports, before becoming a reporter for ITV where she presented shows like Central Soccer Night, Hancock's Half Time and Pulling Power.
After a stint hosting on Heart FM, she returned to Sky in 2008, where she has worked across Sky News and Sky Sports. She's fronted Saturday Night Football and Cricket AM, and even had a brief stint on Sunrise earlier this year.
The new team will take over the show on Monday 17 October. They're not the only new things to expect - they'll be presenting from a sparkly new glass studio too.
Sarah-Jane Mee said: "I'm so excited about returning to the Sunrise hotseat; taking over from Eamonn is a real honour and I feel privileged that I will be starting the day with Sunrise viewers around the UK and beyond. Live news is always such a thrill, you never know where the morning will take you and I looking forward to finding out."
John Ryley, Head of Sky News, added: ''I am delighted that Sarah-Jane is to anchor Sunrise. She's enjoying a stellar career here at Sky and will bring a fresh outlook to Sunrise, combining a lightness of touch with sharp journalistic nous; I know she will excel in her new role."
