Sky News appoints Faisal Islam as the 24-hour British TV news channel's political editor.

Sky News (DStv 402) has appointed Faisal Islam as its new political editor in the place of Adam Boulton.

Faisal Islam will take up his position later this year at Sky News and was at the United Kingdom's Channel 4 News where he is the economics editor.

Sky News will be covering the Scottish Referendum in September this year and the United Kingdom's general election in 2015.

"The political editor is one of the most important and demanding roles at Sky News. We have a long history of challenging the way politics is reported in the United Kingdom and I know Faisal Islam is keen to continue this; I am confident he will rise to the challenge," says John Ryley, the head of Sky News in a statement.
