Sky News with Kay Burley, formerly Afternoon Live, is a weekday news programme in the United Kingdom on Sky News, presented by Kay Burley. It combines rolling-news coverage with debates and interviews on the day's issues.

The show currently airs between 3pm and 6:30pm each weekdays. Until October 2007, the programme ran for two hours, and aired between 12pm and 2pm, under the name of Lunchtime Live. Thereafter the programme ran for 4 hours (1-5pm) until the launch of The Live Desk in September 2008. From October 2016, the programme was moved to run from 3pm to 6:30pm, as part of a new schedule.

On April 11, 2011, the Afternoon Live name was axed, as part of a wider refresh at Sky News; the strand is now simply known as 'Sky News'.
