TV3 to axe midday news

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 7/06/2016

© TV3 TV3 will ditch its midday news bulletin next month and replace it with a digital offering.

The Newshub lunchtime news bulletin will air for the last time on the network on July 1 with Newshub Explains - providing context, background and explanation of the day's news, issues and major events - taking its place.

"The segments will provide in-depth analysis and insight on a range of topics that New Zealanders want to know about," said Newshub's digital news head Jono Hutchison.

No jobs will be lost in the change, MediaWorks said.
