ITV has today confirmed that the News at Ten will return to ITV1 from Monday 14 January, broadcasting every week day from Monday to Thursday
The bulletin will be presented by Sir Trevor McDonald.
Julie Etchingham, who joins ITV from Sky News, will co-present News at Ten along with established ITV News anchor Mark Austin.
The move marks the return of the news programme to its 10pm slot, nine years after it was pulled from the schedules. Friday’s bulletin, called The Late News, will be broadcast at 11pm, to allow ITV to show films and entertainment programmes uninterrupted.
Sir Trevor McDonald said: ‘I am delighted to be back with the news in the 10 o’clock slot. I’m looking forward to the new programme immensely and to the challenge of returning News at Ten to its place in the nation’s affections.”
Etchingham said: “I’m delighted to be joining News at Ten. It’s an iconic programme with an extraordinary history, and a genuine place in people’s affections. It will be an honour to work with Sir Trevor, and to be part of its comeback as a fresh, new programme.”
