Sky News today confirmed ‘Sunday Morning with Trevor Phillips’ will launch on Sunday 3rd September 2023.
Starting at 8:30am, Trevor Phillips will host this 90-minute flagship weekly programme that aims to set the political agenda, delve deep into the big stories, and hear from news-making guests.
“It’s a privilege to be inheriting the Sunday morning seat from my friend and colleague Sophy Ridge,” Phillips said.
“The longer show will give us a chance to include a wider range of voices and to report what’s happening as it happens, but also to step back and ask if we’re really seeing the whole story.
“Viewers who care know that real politics isn’t just about what MPs are saying to each other – so we’ll be talking to people way beyond Westminster about business, about culture, about science and technology, religion and sport – all issues that shape the big political choices.
“And while we won’t be afraid to ask what needs to be asked, we know that viewers aren’t tuning in for a shouting match. With us, the answers are always going to be more important than the questions – because that’s how we hold our leaders to account.”
Phillips has previously presented Sky News’ Sunday politics show, covering for Sophy Ridge’s maternity leave in 2021.
A former head of current affairs at ITV station LWT, Phillips won Royal Television Society journalism awards in 1988 and 1993, before landing the RTS documentary series award for Windrush in 1998.
