Former Sky News anchor Mark Longhurst is to join ITV News West Country to co-present the region’s flagship 6pm news programme.
Mark, who started his television career in an ITV region, brings a wealth of experience to the programme gained from his 20 years at Sky as well as time working on programmes for the BBC and Channel 4.
As a senior presenter at Sky, he’s interviewed several Prime Ministers and high profile public figures from The Prince of Wales to David Bowie.
Mark has strong family ties to the West Country and is looking forward to sitting alongside Kylie Pentelow in a partnership that’ll be seen by viewers 5 nights a week.
He takes over from Ian Axton, who left his role as presenter at the start of the year to become Head of News.
