MEDIA BRIEFS: Channel 5 has the election covered

Following the BBC, Sky News and ITN, Channel 5 has revealed its

plans for election coverage. There is to be an extended news programme

daily at 5.30pm, 5 News and Talk, the second half of which will be a

discussion of issues with viewers and a studio audience. This will be

chaired by husband-and-wife team James and Lucy O'Brien whose show, The

Wright Stuff, is on Anglia TV. Channel 5 said Jerry Springer would

provide political commentary later in the campaign, comparing UK and US

attitudes to the electoral process.
