Sky News Tonight: Show Takes Fresh Approach
Ever since Sky News went on air, British viewers haven't had to wait for the news, you've been able to watch the latest live 24 hours a day.
Twenty five years ago we had "breaking news" pretty much to ourselves.
These days you can stay in touch through all sorts of digital devices.
And, thanks to social media, the traffic is now two-way, you can tell us what you think and what you want to know about in real time.
Sky News has also grown as an operation. In 2014 we have reporters all over the world and around the UK, and a roster of expert correspondents, from politics to showbiz, and from social affairs to technology.
Until now we've concentrated on getting the news first or telling you what's going to happen next as on our late night newspaper review - but you're going to see a change.
Sky News Tonight, the new programme I am presenting with Sarah Hewson every week night between 7pm and 9pm, takes a different approach.
We'll showcase the best of Sky News' coverage and bring you bang up to date with live interviews with the key players and the latest from our team of journalists.
Viewers will be able to interact with us through social media while the show is on.
We'll be live-tweeting from @SkyNewsTonight directly from the Sky News gallery to offer a truly joined up experience between TV and digital.
We will reflect your contributions to the debates and you will be able to influence our agenda and the questions we ask.
At Sky News we've never been afraid to experiment. In the Sky News Tonight studio we're going to try out the latest touch-screen technology.
At home, viewers will be able to access extra information and video on our reports on the screens of your handheld devices.
I have worked as a reporter at all times of day, and presented programmes on Sundays, lunchtimes, in the evening but Sky News has never before pulled its resources together in this way for two hours of evening coverage.
We're really looking forward to bringing you Sky News Tonight and hope you will join us each week night at 7pm from today.
