By PA reporters

Veteran broadcaster Andrew Neil is stepping down from his roles as the chairman and host of a prime time show on GB News, it has been announced.

The former BBC presenter will continue as a regular guest commentator on the channel, GB News said.

The 72-year-old said in a statement: “I am sorry to go but I have concluded it’s time to reduce my commitments on a number of fronts. Over the summer I’ve had time to reflect on my extensive portfolio of interests and decided it was time to cut back.”

He continued: “I wish GB News well in continuing to fulfil its founding promise and mission to reach audiences currently underserved by existing news broadcasters.”

GB News said: “Andrew is without doubt one of the finest journalists and interviewers in this country. GB News thanks him for his 12 months of leadership, wisdom, and advice and we wish him well.”
