It seems so.

But we don't have any official confirmation of that yet. Just wait and see until he proves by himself in the show.

B/S ran a piece about him and his first instance on-air (same instance as in that cap), and also spat out a few profanities in the piece as well. Erm...

Not many switch from AJE to CNN it's usually the other way, Alex did though I definitely saw him on AJE reading the sport during a Barbara Serra bulletin.

He does remind me a little bit of Max. I had forgotten he was on AJE, too. I'd like to see him anchor (sport, that is) in the studio.

Alex Thomas was at Sky News until the start of the year. He mostly worked on the team that provides the Five News service as sports reporter, though occasionally presented sports bulletins on Sky News. Left as part of changes at Five News

There is no bio about him on the CNN website so guess he must be freelance at the moment. Am enjoying his Wimbleton updates and he featured on BS today as well with behind the scenes at Wimbleton.

He provided some insight about how correspondents get dressed for live reports. I think it was a piece destined for B/S, but for some reason, they ran it on WN.

I noticed that this is the first time he hosted World Sport (don't get me wrong, but Pedro and Mark are my faves when it comes to hosting World Sport). I think he did good, and if he get's an opportunity to do it again, then so be it.

Some caps of him in the studio. I assume he's anchoring World Sport at the moment but I've decided to watch Weeds instead (I said watch, not smoke...)

Feels like it's been ages since we saw Alex. He was on one of the primetime shows last night. I think he's been doing a bit of travelling with Living Golf too. I think I read that he is interviewing Prince Andrew in an upcoming ep.

Alex, and the rest of the World Sport team have been doing a great job with their live reports and hosting from the World Cup.

Judging from his twitter, Alex has been on holidays in Australia for a while, but appears to be back in London now.
