Channel Five News

Channel Five News is a distinctive news service produced by ITN, covering the key events of the day with a boldness to often lead on different stories to other news programmes and put people at the heart its news reports. The flagship programme at 5pm is watched by up to a million viewers, with a later bulletin broadcast at 6.30pm and regular short news updates throughout the day.

In an ITN first, the Channel Five News operation is located in a bespoke state-of-the-art newsroom based at Channel Five, linked to ITN's central technical, editorial and corporate infrastructure. ITN changed the TV news landscape when it launched 5 News in 1997, producing Channel Five News for nine years before winning the contract to supply news to Channel Five again from 2012.
