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 Anna Jones fronts the programme from Friday to Sunday.

History[edit]

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.[1][2]

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.

It was confirmed that from late September 2016, the Friday to Sunday slot will be filled by Anna Jones, who previously filled in as Anna Botting's maternity cover and as a relief presenter.[3]
