Political journalist Tom Newton Dunn will host a new nightly show on News UK's forthcoming TV channel talkTV, it is announced.

Political journalist Tom Newton Dunn will anchor a nightly primetime show on the forthcoming new TV channel talkTV, it has been announced.

The new station - launching later this Spring - comes from Rupert Murdoch's News UK and will share resources with other properties such as The Sun, The Times, Times Radio and talkSPORT.

Newton Dunn's new show promises to be "straight and balanced, with views and guests across the political spectrum" and will feature breaking news, panel discussions and major interviews.

"I've been incredibly lucky to play a part in major new media innovations, from the birth of Sun Online to most recently Times Radio, which has reset the dial on what quality news radio can achieve," he said.

"The chance to be at the helm of a new primetime news programme on an innovative new TV channel though really is a career dream come true.

"We want to bring viewers high quality news in a fresh and different way that best serves them. We can't wait to start."

The show will air in the hour timeslot just before Piers Morgan's nightly primetime show on the channel.
