First News Hotseat with Sky News
2014 saw the launch of Hotseat, our TV show on Sky News. I’m really proud of how the show has given First News another way to raise the voices of children and teenagers in the UK. First in the Hotseat was Chancellor George Osborne, who’s in charge of the country’s money. This month the Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan, sat in the Hotseat to face questions from First News readers (see pages 6 and 7). There will be more Hotseat shows in 2015, with the crazy-haired Boris Johnson first up in January. We plan to put the leaders of all the political parties in the Hotseat in the run-up to the General Election in May, when a new Government will be elected. Keep up with First News to find out how you could be on the panel to interview them.
