Sky News at Ten is a long-running daily news show on Sky News, airing between 10:00pm and 10:30pm. From Monday to Thursday, the show is presented by Anna Botting, while Mark Longhurst fronts the programme from Friday to Sunday.
The show was originally launched on 8 March 1999 following the axe of ITV's News at Ten. Originally, the show used its own special version of the Sky News graphics and a unique mix of the Sky News theme music, and was presented by Bob Friend and Anna Botting.
Over the years, the programme has been presented by many of Sky's presenters; since February 2007, Anna Botting has presented the broadcast on weeknights. It is currently followed at 10:30pm by the Press Preview, where the next morning's newspapers are discussed with two studio guests.
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.
