Why you can trust Sky News’ journalism through COVID-19

by John Ryley, Head of Sky News

Thank you for letting Sky News keep you well informed on the facts during these disquieting times.

We recognise the vital role we have to play during this crisis, ensuring you are able to read, watch and listen to accurate, trust-worthy, non-stop journalism and clear analysis across all our digital, television and audio platforms.

Sky News has a serious and deeply-felt obligation to document how this crisis is affecting the people of the United Kingdom and the rest of the world.

It's never been more important to tell our audiences what's going on, and to hold those in authority to account for their decisions.

We have a track record for interviewing the key news makers, and every day we question their decisions, acting as a voice for you.

"You can trust our news service to bring you impartial insight and information."

John Ryley


Head of Sky News

Sky News has charted the spread of the coronavirus outbreak since our memorable eyewitness reporting from the city of Wuhan in China's Hubei province in January.

Our journalists have reported from around the world, and across the UK, putting people at the heart of our storytelling.

We don't just report the news - we analyse it, too. Our specialist teams of editors give you the context behind the headlines so you can understand why, and what it means for you and your family.

Remember we are independent. We have no agenda - whatsoever - and will always ensure you can trust our news service to bring you impartial insight and information.

We are also an international news organisation that is free of charge.

And as a member of the Trust Project, we’re helping our audiences recognise the commitments and expertise of trustworthy journalism.

We'll tell stories of hope and endeavour across Britain and the rest of the world.

We are in this together.
