GB News will attempt to shake up the broadcasting landscape when the news network launches its TV channel in early June.

The news service, spearheaded by veteran broadcaster Andrew Neil, has announced plans to go live on Sunday June 13.

In a tweet, the channel said it would launch at 8pm with a special programme, 'Welcome to GB News'.

I canโ€™t wait!

Iโ€™m probably sounding very stupid as I donโ€™t know very much about it but I do like to listen to Andrew Neil. Any other information you have would be much appreciated.

๐Ÿ˜„ that will teach me to do more than have a quick peek!!

I was going to say that he was wearing very badly๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„, but thought it would bring a brick down on my head!

FannyCornforth Sun 13-Jun-21 14:53:08

Sorry Alegrias!

Alegrias1 Sun 13-Jun-21 15:15:18

No worries Fanny flowers

It was like a comedy sketch!

Whitewavemark2 Sun 13-Jun-21 17:25:48

๐Ÿ˜„. Iโ€™m still not going to watch it though however old they are.

Fox News is not to my taste.

The only reason to waaatch for me would be to see what Andrew Neil is currently sporting on the top of his head and what peculiar shade it is!

Grandmabatty Sun 13-Jun-21 17:57:39

Neil Oliver stays near my son. I used to enjoy watching coast and other history programmes but went right off him. He is not a nice man.

Urmstongran Sun 13-Jun-21 17:58:52

Bet you take a peek WW! ๐Ÿ‘€
Else how can you slag it off tomorrow? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Well you managed to criticise the Starmer interview by Piers Morgan whilst proudly announcing you hadn't watched it grin

Andrew Neil is in the UK, he returned several weeks ago.

Those who are slightly left of middle constantly criticise those who are slightly right for not reading/watching ball sources, but obviously it does not apply to their closed minds to view/read alternative media?

GrannyGravy13 Sun 13-Jun-21 19:04:47

*ball? should read all

Alegrias1 Sun 13-Jun-21 19:39:44

This is really interesting. They don't care if nobody watches.

I didn't realise Rebekah Brooks was in the picture.

It was lovely to see a reporter doing her job from our world famous pier. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
