The daily news channel will be making some changes to its schedule from this week as two new segments join GB News after the summer. They’ll join the already announced four new political programmes expected to coincide with presenter Andrew Neil’s return from his extended break.

Two new additions will be joining the GB News line-up from September.

Weekends will now feature an hour-long sports programme hosted by CNN’s Rhiannon Jones from 9am-10am.

The series promises “a comprehensive round-up of the weekend’s sporting action, including big-name interviews, guests and debate as well as highlights of all the main events.”

Plus, Liam Galligan will be presenting a half-hour segment dedicated to business titled On the Money.

The series will air weekdays from 1pm-1:30pm starting next Monday, September 6.

Galligan’s insight will offer viewers a “daily dose of economics, business and consumer news, views and discussion.”

Despite launching just over two months ago, the channel has already seen a number of changes including the lengthy departure of chairman Andrew Neil.

The former BBC presenter is now expected to return from his summer break in September alongside six new series now joining GB’s growing repertoire.

The sports and business shows will be airing with the recently announced political shows also launching in September.

New presenters Tom Harwood and Gloria De Piero will be heading up The Briefing: AM and The Briefing: Lunchtime respectively.

De Piero’s Lunchtime show will air Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

The channel’s already popular The Briefing: PMQs will take over De Piero’s slot on Wednesdays at 12pm, with Fantasy PMQs returning when Parliament is in recess.

Afternoon coverage will start with The Briefing PM with Darren McCaffrey, before heading into GB’s already popular evening segments.

This includes a show presented by former UKIP Leader Nigel Farage, Dan Wootton on Monday-Thursday and Mark Dolan on Fridays.

This is the latest in a number of changes to GB News’ line-up, as Farage also took a short break from his programme on Monday afternoon.

Plus, newcomer Patrick Christys will be taking over from Colin Brazier and hosting To The Point with Mercy Muroki on weekday mornings.

Andrew Neil is also expected to return to his 9pm slot sometime in September.

However, the presenter has not made his return to the series official so his future with the channel is still uncertain.

GB News have also confirmed regular news bulletins will be incorporated into its daily programming in the near future.

GB News is available to watch on Freeview 236, Sky HD 515, Virgin Media HD 626, YouView 236, Freesat HD 216, YouTube.
