GMTV overhauled its branding on 5 January 2009. This coincided with the departure of main presenter Fiona Phillips and weather presenter Andrea McLean in December 2008. In November 2008, after much speculation, it was announced that Sky News business presenter Emma Crosby would replace Fiona Phillips, and the BBC’s Kirsty McCabe would replace McLean as weather presenter.
GMTV relaunched with a new set and new on-screen graphics. For the first time since the station’s launch the logo was changed from the ‘sun’ logo. The previous programme names News Hour and GMTV Today were dropped, and the two segments were once again renamed ‘GMTV’. LK Today was also renamed ‘GMTV with Lorraine’.
