ITV Daybreak’s disaster by social media
On September 6th, after axing GMTV and all but one of its presenters, ITV launched it’s new breakfast news magazine Daybreak – at Brandwatch, we started tracking it. One million people tuned in to watch, but outside the news, fewer than 200 people felt compelled to talk about it via social networks. A lot of the surrounding first day chat was focussed on Christine Bleakely’s outfit for day one – (dress by Hugo Boss, handbag by Chanel, heels by Aldo, earings by Annoushka and ring by Reiss).
