Sky News loses another fine journalist as Janine Perrett departs

• I was given some wonderful opportunities over the years, made many friends and wish them all good luck for the future.

Monday nights on Paul Murray Live on Sky News won’t be the same with the news that Janine Perrett is leaving the channel.

Perrett said yesterday: “After 10 great years at Sky News I have taken redundancy. I was given some wonderful opportunities over the years, made many friends and wish them all good luck for the future. It was 40 years ago this month I started in journalism and I will continue to fight that good fight.”

In response, Perrett’s Twitter feed was filled with friends, colleagues and viewers wishing her well. Even Paul Murray who posted in June that he was dropping Twitter for Instagram as he favoured social media platform. (Murray still retweets occasionally.)

Murray said to Perrett: “Damn. You got me back on twitter. Endless Love. Endless Respect. Endless Memories. Endless Mates For Life.”
