A couple of years ago SkyNews set up a Thursday night show called the Pledge which had lots of right wing commentators such as Carole Malone and Nick Ferrari and Michelle Dewberry with the likes as Rachel Johnson and Afua Hirsch supposedly providing balance. The show lasted about a year before being dropped presumably because it wasn't pulling in the viewers.

Andrew Neil appears to have created an entire news channel along the lines of The Pledge and hopefully it will go the same way as the Pledge.

Ferrari, Malone and Dan Wootton may well go down well with the Talk Radio crowd but I'm not sure that they really appeal to TV audiences.

Radio is cheaper to produce so doesn’t need such large audience figures. Murdoch found out with Sky that you couldn’t cut and paste a tabloid model onto British TV. Expectations are higher and even the least media savvy viewers find cheap production values irksome. It all depends on the audience figures GBNews can survive on.

A GB News special

Which GB News host once spent the night in the clink after the police were called to cool down a domestic dispute?

Which GB News host was once locked in their dressing room by bosses at a previous job as they were visibly far too hammered to appear on camera?

Which GB News host once used a catfish profile on a dating site?

Which GB News host was once described by an admiring crew member as so hard-living he "hadn't seen anyone that fucked since my days touring with Joe Cocker in the 60s... and he had an arm full of heroin"?

My money's on Dewberry and McCoy for 1 and 2. Not sure about the others, but the idea of Andrew Neill high on the horse is now lodged in my brain. Oh yes, Wootton for 3.
