Readers can vote in our poll on whether they plan to ditch BBC Breakfast and ITV’s GMB to watch the new network’s morning programme called The Great British Breakfast. And let us know more about what you think in the comments section below.
Our poll comes as the new channel, chaired by veteran political interviewer Andrew Neil, launches with a special programme in just one week.
The new network will kick off with a show called Welcome To GB News at 8pm on June 13.
Their morning show will feature a selection of hosts including former Sky Sports presenter Kirsty Gallacher and ex-Euronews breakfast anchor Rosie Wright.
Other presenters on The Great British Breakfast are Nana Akua, Rebecca Hutson, Inaya Folarin Iman and Darren McCaffrey.
The new morning show will be competition for BBC Breakfast, whose presenters include Dan Walker, Naga Munchetty, Louise Minchin and Charlie Stayt.
It will also be fresh competition for GMB after Piers Morgan sensationally quit the ITV programme known for its fiery debates earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Kay Burley returns to her breakfast slot at Sky News on Monday following a six-month suspension for breaking Covid rules to celebrate her 60th birthday last December.
Mr Neil, widely regarded as TV’s toughest political interrogator, will lead GB News’s evening line-up with a prime-time news and interview programme.
The channel’s other high-profile signings include ex-BBC presenter Simon McCoy, former executive editor for The Sun Dan Wootton and ex-Sky broadcaster Colin Brazier.
Businesswoman and former Apprentice winner Michelle Dewberry will host Dewbs & Co every weeknight.
Mr Wootton, known for breaking the Megxit story, will present Tonight Live With Dan Wootton five nights a week.
