Boris Johnson joins GB News

Posted on Friday 27 October 2023 by TV Newsroom

Former Prime Minister Boris Johnson will join GB News in the new year as a presenter, programme maker and commentator.

He will play a key role in the channel’s coverage of both the UK general election and the US elections next year.

GB News is an insurgent channel with a loyal and growing following. I am excited to say I will be joining shortly – and offering my frank opinions on world affairs,” Boris said.

“I will be talking about the immense opportunities for Global Britain – as well as the challenges – and why our best days are yet to come.”

Johnson became a MP in the 2001 general election with a majority of 8,500 votes. He was the Mayor of London from 2008-2016, and Prime Minister from 2019-2022.

Editorial Director Michael Booker added: “I’m delighted to say, GB News has got Boris ‘done’!

“We are tremendously proud to have him join the GB News family, particularly as we head into a seismic year of politics both here and across the Atlantic.

GB News is available on Freeview, Freesat, Sky, YouView, Virgin Media, and online.
