NEWSHUB ANNOUNCES NEW WEEKDAY NEWS BULLETIN FOR THREE IN MARCH

Newshub has today announced a brand new weekday Newshub bulletin will be coming to Three later this month.
 
Launching on March 20th,  Newshub Live at 4pm will provide an afternoon news product Monday to Friday that will feature live content, studio interviews and a faster pace than traditional 6pm or late programmes.  

The half an hour programme will include full coverage of the spectrum of News & Current Affairs, lifestyle and entertainment news, as well as allowing for expanded coverage of major news events taking place in New Zealand, or globally, ahead of 6pm.

It will be presented by Newshub’s Susie Nordqvist, who will also help produce the bulletin.  

MediaWorks Chief News Officer Hal Crawford said: “As a network we are committed to news - with this new afternoon bulletin we’re catering to evolving audience demand and increasing the amount of news we broadcast.”

“Internationally, afternoon news is an area of growth for free-to air-broadcasters. This programme will provide in-demand content to the sizeable television audience at this time, increase audience for Newshub Live at 6pm and further cement our position as New Zealand’s number one news service.”
