Liam Halligan is to join GB News as economics and business editor.
He will also co-present a daily lunchtime programme when the channel launches later this year.
Liam is best known for his weekly column in The Sunday Telegraph – Economics Agenda – which he has written for the last 18 years and will continue.
He also led Channel 4 News’ economics and business coverage for eight years.
“Begin apart of the launch of GB News is a hugely exciting opportunity,” said Liam.
“In a increasingly complex world, the community is hungry for analysis, explanation and a range of viewpoints – and that’s what we will deliver.”
The new news channel will reach 96% of British households via Freeview, Sky, Virgin Media, YouView, and Freesat when it launches later this year.
