Eamonn Holmes and GB News co-host Isabel Webster told fans there’s ‘no excuse for news to be boring’ while teasing their new breakfast programme which begins on the channel tomorrow.
Former This Morning host Eamonn starts his new gig on Monday, January 3, after announcing the move last month.
He will reunite with former Sky News’s Sunrise co-star for the upcoming show when it begins tomorrow.
Ahead of coming to air, they explained what viewers could expect from their slot on the channel, insisting they would ‘break the status quo’ as they urged people to tune in.
Isabel posted a clip on her Instagram on Saturday, where she was sat next to Eamonn discussing their show.
Eamonn begun by saying: ‘News should be many things, many, many, many things, but it should never be boring.’
‘There’s no excuse for news to be boring because it matters to all of us, every single one of us,’ Isabel agreed.
Eamonn added: ‘I think the thing about us is that we will be very, very keen. We’ve been doing this long enough to do it differently than everybody else.
He went on to tell fans they are set to ‘reinvent the wheel’ with Isabel weighing in: ‘There’s no reason why everything has to be done in a particular way.
‘We’re going to break the status quo and do things in a way that is different because it’s exciting and interesting and quite frankly because the world is changing.’
Eamonn concluded by saying the pair would present ‘real stories for real people’ with Isabel promising to get outside of the ‘Westminster bubble’ and hear from other parts of the UK.
On New Year’s Day, Eamonn asked his Twitter follows to make it their New Year’s resolution to watch his show on GB News.
He wrote: Make it a #NewYearResolution … Breakfast with Eamonn & Isabel from Monday on #GBNews. Let us wake you up.’
Eamonn explained his reasons behind the move last month, sharing: ‘I’ve spent my career on broadcasting firsts and start-ups, and GB News is one of the most exciting yet.
‘It’s just the kind of shake-up the industry needs.’
Eamonn acted as a stand in presenter on This Morning in recent years with his wife Ruth Langsford, who confirmed she will continue as part of the ITV family.
She expressed her support of Eamonn’s new role in an update posted to her one million Instagram followers last month.
Ruth wrote: ’And so another chapter begins… I’ll miss working alongside him but he’s back doing what he loves most….news.
‘Can’t wait to see him back in action! @eamonnholmes @gbnewsonline.’
Breakfast with Eamonn Holmes and Isabel Webster begins tomorrow at 6am on GB News.
