Adam Boulton steps down as Sky News political editor to present evening show

Sky News is to appoint a new political editor later this year after it announced Adam Boulton is leaving the role to anchor a new evening show.

Boulton, who has been Sky's political editor for 25 years, will helm the two-hour show every weekday and present set-piece political events.

In a PRWeek interview in December Boulton said that in five years' time he would "almost certainly be campaigning for leaders' debates in the 2020 election".
