Sky News is set to launch the first daily prime time news show dedicated to climate change.
Hosted by Anna Jones, The Daily Climate Show will follow Sky News correspondents as they investigate how global warming is changing our landscape and how we all live our lives.
First airing on Wednesday 7 April, the show will also highlight solutions to the crisis and show how small changes can make a big difference.
John Ryley, head of Sky News said: “There has never been a more urgent need to report accurately on the climate crisis and to bring this story to new audiences.
“In this critical year for action ahead of COP26, The Daily Climate Show from Sky News will feature forensic data-journalism, expert analysis and eye-witness reporting and look at the solutions to climate change.”
COP26 president Alok Sharma said: “I’m delighted to see how Sky, a Principal Partner and Media Partner for COP26, is informing and engaging its viewers about the climate crisis, and the need for urgent action, through the Daily Climate Show.
“Businesses, including media organisations, have a key part to play on the road to Glasgow and in helping us all build back greener.”
The 15-minute programme will run on the Sky News website and app, on YouTube and Twitter and is broadcast at 6.30pm and 9.30pm Monday to Friday.
A weekly digital edition will be published across all of Sky News’ social platforms, including Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram.
A companion podcast, Climatecast, will go into more depth on issues covered in the week and a “digital dashboard” will give Sky News viewers and consumers a live real time minute to minute view of how power is being generated and used, and how close the planet is from reaching a potentially catastrophic temperature increase.
Sky News is a founding member of the albert News Consortium which provides a platform to share sustainable production practice among news organisations.

Michelle Whitehead, special projects manager for albert said: “It’s fantastic to see Sky yet again taking decisive action to further its environmental commitments.
“We have no doubt that The Daily Climate Show will really help audiences to understand the climate issues we face but equally feel empowered to make positive changes in their own lives and beyond.”
