SKY NEWS EXPAND GLOBAL NEWS SERVICE

SKY News have announced that they are to expand their global newsgathering capability at the start of next year.
From January 1, 2001, Sky News will increase their number of major bureaux worldwide to seven with the opening of a new bureau in Johannesburg. From the same date Sky News will also appoint six extra reporters and six additional crews.
The channel will add a further three SNG vehicles to their current fleet of six mobile trucks which will allow reporters and correspondents to send their reports and broadcast live anywhere in the world. One will be based in Ireland, the other two, a special production satellite truck and flyaway satellite, will be based in London.
Nick Pollard, Head of Sky News, said: “We are adding to Sky News’ extensive resources and award-winning team of correspondents to ensure we maintain our enviable reputation for covering breaking news whenever and wherever it occurs accurately, fairly and with scrupulous objectivity.”
Keith Graves and Emma Hurd will become the News Correspondents for Washington, Stuart Ramsey for Johannesburg, Jonathon Hunt for Brussels and he will replace Tim Marshall, who will return to London as Foreign Affairs Editor, Andrew Wilson will replace Keith Graves in Jerusalem, and Geoff Meade has been appointed Moscow Correspondent.
Sky News say that their team of correspondents will be on 24-hour call to report world events, as they unfold.
