Simon McCoy thanks viewers as he signs off final show on GB News after six months on the channel: ‘You are what this job is all about’

Simon McCoy has thanked GB News viewers after completing his final show on the channel on Thursday.

The broadcaster, 60, who had been with the channel for just six months, took to Twitter after his final breakfast show aired to tell viewers: ‘To all of you who have watched me on #GBNews … thank you.

‘YOU are what this job is all about. Until we meet again… #aurevoir.’

Simon had joined the channel when it launched in the summer after having been at the BBC for 15 years, but announced earlier in December that he would be leaving at the end of the year.

He told viewers as he handed over to the next show: ‘That’s it from the Great British Breakfast with Isabel and me. That’s it for me, thank you all for watching. Keep watching.

‘Eamonn [Holmes] is in next week and I wish him all the luck in the world.’

 

Co-host Isabel Webster added: ‘We’ll miss you very much Simon, and it’s been a pleasure presenting with you today.’

Simon had joined the channel in June, but it was later revealed he would be leaving after just six months for ‘personal reasons’.

In a statement, GB News CEO Angelos Frangopoulos said: ‘Simon is an outstanding broadcaster and we’re sorry to see him go.

‘We remain open to ways we can work with him in future.’

From January 4, the position will be filled by Eamonn Holmes who revealed his mother will be looking forward to his debut.

Sharing a photo of them together on a sofa, he wrote: ‘It’s been a blessing my entire adult life that The World becomes a smaller place because my Mum can see me most days on Telly.

‘Like a lot of Elderly people she relies on that company. See u next Mon Mum on my new adventure GB News Breakfast.’
