Sky News move into Gherkin


Sky News have become the newest residents of 30 St Mary Axe, moving both their offices and studios to the ‘Gherkin’, in the City of London. Jeff Randall is broadcasting his famous 7.30pm business show from the 15th floor of the London landmark. The panoramic views are ideal for live broadcasts, as the backdrop includes St. Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster.

Jeff Randall’s guest line-up of ‘key players’, coupled with the move to the city, suggests a renewed commitment to business news. Sky News also hope to benefit from their proximity to the city when reporting on the economy. The prime location allows greater access to leading business players in the FTSE 100.

The Sky News move into the Gherkin comes amid increased demands on existing London office space. A lack of new developments built during the recession has caused this increase in competition.
