Sky News And Sky Sports To Axe Around 50 Job Roles In Favour A Machine | TV News
The future of our television and film industries may not manned by humans, but by robots.
Sky has told about fifty of its studio staff across news and sports that they will be made redundant, replaced by an automated system controlling robotic cameras.
The proposals will see forty-six roles scrapped, and thirty-one alternate roles created. The measures are subject to a forty-five-day consultation and will be finalised by the end of August. Such changes are part of Sky News and Sports’ move to a shared studio space.
Additionally, three anchors (Andrew Wilson, Lorna Dunkley, and Samantha Simmonds) are to leave, with other presenters covering their shifts.
