He’s a terrific addition to the GB News family.”He added: “The programme will embrace a range of guests and viewpoints from all sides of politics but will also explore some of Jacob’s other wide-ranging interests.”Examples of other potential topics cited are “classic cars” and “good Somerset cider”.Jacob Rees-Mogg pictured in October 2022 (AFP via Getty Images)In a statement, Rees-Mogg said: “GB News is a bastion of free speech which clearly has its finger uniquely on the pulse of public opinion and does not talk down to its viewers and listeners.“I have been impressed by the channel’s independent-mindedness and its determination to talk to people with many different perspectives, which is exactly what I will do on my programme.”Tory MP Esther McVey also currently hosts a weekly show on GB News, alongside her husband Philip. GB News endured a shaky start after its launch in 2021, earning mockery for a number of production blunders.
