Happy returns

Esme Wren returns to Newsnight as Editor after 12 years running politics for Sky News. Esme has a degeee in political science from Bristol (including a spell as a Fulbright scholar) and a post-grad qualification in journalism from City University. That seems to have been enough to get her straight into the BBC in 1999 as a political producer working for Newsnight, back in the days of the programme's first female editor, Sian Kevill.

Will the funny business beloved of Ian Katz survive under Wren ?  Back in 2012, for Valentine's Day, Esme was on a Sky News panel judging "Britain's Most Fanciable MPs".
