Eamonn Holmes is to leave This Morning after 15 years presenting the programme to host his own show on GB News, it has been confirmed.
The veteran broadcaster will join the channel in the New Year.
He said: “I’ve spent my career on broadcasting firsts and start-ups, and GB News is one of the most exciting yet.
“It’s just the kind of shake-up the industry needs.”
He added: “I’ve admired GB News from the beginning for its clever mix of punchy debate but delivered with warmth and even some fun.”
Before co-hosting This Morning with wife Ruth Langsford, Holmes presented GMTV from 1993 to 2005. He has also hosted the Sunrise programme on Sky News and a breakfast show on Radio 5 Live.
He will join contributors such as Colin Brazier and Nigel Farage on the channel, which launched in June this year.
