Sky News with Kay Burley, formerly Afternoon Live, is a three hour weekday news programme in the United Kingdom on Sky News, presented by Kay Burley. It combines rolling-news coverage with reports on various "human interest" stories. Additionally, regular updates are given on headline stories as well as business and sports news.

The show currently airs between 2pm and 5pm. 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.

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'.
