Sky News at Ten
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (February 2007)|
Sky News at Ten is a long-running daily news show on Sky News, airing between 10:00pm and 11:00pm (including Sportsline at 10:45pm). From Monday to Thursday, the show is presented by Anna Botting, whilst Friday to Sunday Mark Longhurst fronts the programme. As of November 2014, Anna Botting is currently on maternity leave with her second child, but is expected to return in 2015. Lorna Dunkley is covering the 9pm-12am shift.
Over the years, the show has been presented by many of Sky's presenters although between 2002 and October 2005, the show had no set presenters, with a group of five or six rotating the duties. These included Chris Roberts, Vivien Creegor, Stephen Dixon, Allan King, Emma Crosby, and Martin Popplewell.
In May 2010, Sky News at Ten began to air in the United States on the Fox Soccer Channel cable network at 2am Eastern Time until the start of the European season in August, mainly because of the programme's comprehensive look at the sports of the day and to reduce conflicts with ESPN due to sister network Sky Sports News usually airing at that time. The substitution of Sky News at Ten was purposeful, as Fox Soccer Channel was disallowed to use video imagery of the 2010 FIFA World Cup because of ESPN holding exclusive English language rights to the tournament, which would have necessitated heavy redaction of Sky Sports News broadcasts to remove those clips.
