HomeNewsNiB: Humphrys chairs QT, King takes over Dobbs

John Humphrys will chair tonight’s Question Time for David Dimbleby who was injured yesterday in a minor farming accident.

The BBC Said: “David was loading a bullock on to a trailer when the bullock reared, resulting in David being briefly knocked out. He also received a cut to the head that required stitches.”

CNN’s John King will take over Lou Dobbs’ vacant 7pm slot on CNN from early next year.

John said “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity, at this busy and consequential time, to have a platform to discuss and explore the big issues of our time. There is a lot of noise and conflict in our political discourse, which is fun to cover, but I’m convinced from my travels that people also thirst for more details as well as insight and context. I’m looking forward to combining those conversations with top newsmakers, smart reporting and expert analysis.”
