Liam Halligan joins GB News as economics and business editor
The Sunday Telegraph journalist Liam Halligan joins the new GB News channel as its economics and business editor.

Liam Halligan has become the latest addition to the on-air team of GB News, joining as the channel's economics and business editor.

The 51-year-old has written the 'Economics Agenda' column in The Sunday Telegraph for the last 18 years and has also worked for The Spectator, Channel 4 and Radio 5 Live.

As part of his remit at GB News, Halligan will co-present a daily lunchtime show on the new channel, which will launch in the coming months.

"Being part of the launch of GB News is a hugely exciting opportunity," said Halligan. "In an increasingly complex world, the community is hungry for analysis, explanation and a range of viewpoints – and that's what we will deliver."

John McAndrew, the channel's director of news and programmes, said: "Liam has an exceptional ability to unpick complex financial and economic issues and explain them meaningfully. He's a brilliant journalist and a superb addition to our lineup."

Other presenters announced so far include channel chairman Andrew Neil, Dan Wootton, Michelle Dewberry, Colin Brazier and Alex Phillips.
