Robert Peston Moves To New Slot
ITV has today announced that Robert
Pestonís current affairs show is to move to a new slot on
Wednesday nights, airing after ITVís New at Ten.
The current affairs series has aired
on ITV since May 2016 on Sunday mornings, with a post-news
repeat introduced in September 2016, which boosted the ratings
and quickly became the programmeís most popular transmission.
Robert Peston said: "I could not be
more pleased and excited that Peston on Sunday is moving to a
Wednesday night slot, under the shortened name of Peston.
It has always struck me as significant
that PoS typically has double or more viewers for its 10.15pm
repeat than for its live broadcast at 10am, so I wanted to
explore a possible move to first transmission in the evening,
and it then seemed natural to change the broadcast day to
Wednesday - because this is often the biggest political day of
the week, and includes Prime Ministers' Questions.
"I am immensely proud of what we have
created at Peston on Sunday. Peston, in its new slot, will
retain its blend of agenda-setting interviews, digital
interaction with the audience, cutting-edge graphical analysis,
informality and fun, with some exciting new elements.
"There is no more important time to be
challenging our leaders and influencers on the issues that
matter to ITV's viewers - with the UK facing the most momentous
political choices for a generation, on Brexit, on how to fund
and run vital public services, on how to solve the housing
crisis, on how to end the record-breaking stagnation of living
"At the new Peston we aim to be at the
heart of the national debate, but never pompously or boringly".
