Ms Dynamite and friends take over the news

Channel Five are allowing celebrities Ms Dynamite, Dame Kelly Holmes, Alastair Campbell and Howard Marks to join forces and edit the TV network’s news shows. The stars will take over the airwaves for four weeks starting from 11 November, and during that time they will be in charge one 30 minute show daily. Full-time Five News presenter Kirsty Young says, “The four guest editors have very different areas of specialist knowledge and use diverse disciplines in their respective fields of music, sport, culture and politics.” Mark Calvert, Five News editor, says, “This is a first for television news in this country.All of our guest editors are used to being in the news, and have on many occasions been the focus of intense media interest. But this will challenge them, and challenge their view of what makes news.”It will be fascinating to see how their backgrounds influence their editorial judgment, opinions on the day’s top news stories and choice of individual reports.”
