Jeff Randall Live launches on September 24 at 7.30pm, and will see Randall taking a business angle at the big news stories of the day.
Sky News head of news, John Ryley said: "The name Jeff Randall is synonymous with quality, accessible and challenging journalism. He is a terrific addition to the presenting team and will further strengthen Sky News’ journalism."
Randall was appointed editor-at-large of the Daily Telegraph in November 2005, after nearly five years as the BBC's business editor. He joined the BBC from Sunday Business, which he edited from its launch in February 1998. Before that he was assistant editor, sports editor and city & business editor on the Sunday Times and was a director of Times Newspapers.
He writes a twice-weekly column for The Daily Telegraph, and is attributed with breaking the news for the paper that Michael Grade was defecting from the BBC to ITV at the end of 2006.
Randall said: "British TV has needed a grown-up business discussion show for years. I’m thrilled to be launching the first one, as part of Sky’s rolling news service."
