Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Sep 3, 2022

"The tone was established by much early jokiness and chat, which, though jolly, didn’t quite introduce the presenters properly. Then some blah about listeners choosing the day’s topic...the interview with the former cabinet secretary Gus O’Donnell (nickname: God) interesting and revealing, and the tone less grating...programmes are good and will almost certainly get better. The News Agents, though, needs to settle into a less breathless rhythm if it’s to do any damage to the gold standard of the New York Times’s The Daily and the Guardian’s Today in Focus. The News Agents needs to tone down the jokes and daft nicknames and concentrate."
