Alastair Stewart joins GB News after being forced to quit ITV

Speaking on his new role, Alastair said: “GB News is a unique opportunity to broaden the spectrum, challenge the groupthink and shift away from a predictable agenda in news and debate.

“I can’t wait to get stuck in and tackle issues that really matter to people across the United Kingdom.”

Director of News and Programmes, John McAndrew, added: “Alastair is hugely respected across the country and we are honours to have a journalist of his calibre and experience on board.

“He will anchor GB News in more ways than one.”
