Sky News To Launch New Interview Led By Beth Rigby

Sky News to launch a new interview show led by Political Editor Beth Rigby.

Beginning in March, Rigby will question decision takers from all walks of life, and people caught up at the coal face of change. The aim is to explore their views on what is going on in Britain and around the world at a time of great uncertainty, and - more generally - to seek out new directions for the in-depth interview as a tool of journalism.

In keeping with the aim of putting people at the heart of stories, Sky News will seek to show that although a lot of debate is conducted through the prism of data and evidence, it is still beliefs and human impulses which determine decisions, and humans who find themselves in the crucible of profoundly important moments.

The show will be live from Sky News studios each Thursday from 9pm, an appointment in the schedule for the big interviews that will both respond to the news of the week and also set the agenda for the days to come.

Rigby said: "Much in our daily lives is shaped by decisions made in Parliament, which is why being Sky News’s Political Editor is such a privilege. But I’m interested too about what happens beyond Westminster, and this flagship interview show will be the place where you'll hear from fascinating people with fascinating stories from all walks of life.

"I'm looking forward to welcoming a wide range of guests to discuss and debate the live issues, and provide a moment each week for more in depth-conversation away from the relentless rhythm of the daily news cycle."
