Daily Politics - Presenters


Daisy Sampson was Neil's co-presenter until the summer of 2005 when she left to join ITV. Jenny Scott joined as her replacement, she left in June 2008 to join the Bank of England. Sally Magnusson joined briefly in 2005 as the sole presenter on Friday's episode. Anita Anand joined the programme as Jenny Scott's replacement in September 2008 with Jo Coburn presenting on Thursdays.

Shelagh Fogarty joined the team in January 2010 to co-host with Andrew Neil on Thursdays for three months after Anita Anand began maternity leave, while Jo Coburn took on Anita Anand's role presenting four days a week. At the beginning of April 2010, Jo Coburn went full time presenting the programme every day. Anita Anand returned on 6 September 2010 and left the programme in July 2011.

When the programme returned on on 5 September 2011, it was presented by Andrew Neil on Mondays, Jo Coburn on Fridays, and the two of them together on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. As of January 2012, following the creation of 'The Sunday Politics', Coburn presents Monday to Thursday and Neil presents Wednesday to Friday, making Wednesdays and Thursdays the only days the programme has two presenters.

The regular reporters are Adam Fleming, Giles Dilnot, David Thompson and Susana Mendonça. Other regular contributors to the show include the BBC's political editor Nick Robinson and his deputy James Landale - who help to review Prime Minister's Questions on Wednesday's extended shows.
