  1. Sorry Mr Murdoch but you’ve cocked up. Moving Kevin out of his slot for some guy called Morgan and a chav called Osborne will lose my ear. Cristo was brill with his wit and made people smile, which is much needed these days.
    As Fraser would say ” we’re doomed I tell you…. doomed.

  2. I want Cristo and Kevin O’Sullivan back on prime time TV. They are great presenters and debaters. Piers Morgan in my humble opinion is a complete idiot and I stopped watching him when he started hysterically talking about lock downs at the beginning of the Pandemic.

  3. A huge mistake not ensuring Kevin O’Sullivan retains a key slot -one of the best if not the best current presenters. Cristo should be given a decent slot along with Rob Rinder – nothing against Kyle but he’s not in the same league as the fore mentioned three. You could however lose Hartley Brewer who never provides any balance and who is irritating and condescending – her show along with bob mills are the only two I currently switch off.

    You have created regularity and familiarity- but you could lose your current loyal listeners/viewers very quickly.

    • Agreed when Kyle comes on I’ll be turning to GBNEWS for the rest of the day. Not a fan of Piers or Osborne either. GBNEWS has Nigel the Great, followed by Mark Stien, Dan Wotton then Frisbee all better than what’s being offered.

  4. Love Cristo and Kevin. I hope they will be used more. Not so keen on James whale would rather Cristo or Kevin.
    I’m so pleased we now have a second news channel worth watching. Good luck all.

  5. Sorry but with so little Kev I think I’ll fall out of the habit of listening to Talk Radio, he was & is the best presenter on it & had ethics as well.

  6. Seems like a poor for television launch schedule for a channel that would bring news, culture, entertainment, sport and different documentary stuff. Would’ve thought For TV it would’ve invested in trying to nab The Graham Norton Show from the BBC to Talk TV attracting a Friday night entertainment audience or get some sport coverage to visualise Talk Sport content for a mix of live sport events and analysis. Could’ve created a The Times Production studio to do News investigative documentaries. No just doing what is talk radio but televisioned on linear seems odd to fit TV world famed controversial figures Sharon Osborne and Piers Morgan around Radio and social media types like James Whale, Mike Graham and Hartley-Brewer
