Journalists Tom Harwood and Darren McCaffrey join the lineup for new news channel GB News.

Tom Harwood and Darren McCaffrey have joined the political reporting team at new channel GB News.

The station, which launches later this year, aims to offer an alternative approach to round-the-clock news with a format of personality-led programming and a greater emphasis on issues affecting viewers outside of London.

Harwood has been working for the political website Guido Fawkes for the last three years, while McCaffrey was part of the team at Sky News for almost a decade and has recently worked for Euronews.

"Journalism is at its best when it reflects the widest range of views rather than just the loudest ones," said McCaffrey. "I know only too well that local voices are sometimes left out and GB News' mission to change that is something I'm incredibly excited to be part of."

John McAndrew, the channel's director of programming, said: "Both are among the most tenacious reporters in politics. Darren is without doubt one of the best political journalists in the country with an exceptional ability to challenge convention, seek out fresh angles and tell us what's really going on. He's a fearless interviewer with a boundless enthusiasm that's compelling on air.

"Tom is an incredibly bright and exciting young journalist with a hunger for finding new stories. He's made a huge impact so far and has a very promising broadcast career ahead."

GB News will include programmes hosted by chairman Andrew Neil, The Sun's Dan Wootton and Sky News veteran Colin Brazier.
