About 5 News

/ 9 August 2016

5 News covers 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.

The 5 News operation is located in a bespoke state-of-the-art newsroom based at Channel 5, linked to ITN’s central technical, editorial and corporate infrastructure.

ITN changed the TV news landscape when it launched 5 News in 1997, producing Five News for nine years before winning the contract to supply news to Channel 5 again from 2012.
