Sky News at Five (formerly Live at Five) and Sky News at Six are the titles of Sky News' authoritative hour-long evening news round-ups, beginning at 5pm and 6pm, British time.

Format[edit]

Since the channel's revamp on 24 October 2005, the slot has been anchored by Jeremy Thompson on weekdays, and Andrew Wilson on weekends, providing a round-up of all the day's events and coverage of any late-breaking news. The show currently runs until 7pm, although the 6-7pm hour is branded Sky News at Six. The show was branded Live at Five until a change in branding policy was introduced by Sky News Executives on Monday 11 April 2011, when the majority of Sky News output was rebranded, simply Sky News
