Split from ITV News 2013 Rebrand

That doesn't look too bad to be fair - the close up shots of presenters always look awkward anyway thanks to the black borders behind them.

Is Granada the only region that ever rotates their desk?
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

I think 'Meridian Tonight' is a far better name than 'ITV News Meridian' it just rolls off better.

I think in a future rebrand it should be stylised as 'Meridian Tonight' but with the ITV News logo above it.

And for generic bullitens 'ITV Meridian News'

All regions for their flagship programme should have their own name or 'Live' or 'Tonight' after the region name:

Westcountry Live
Anglia Tonight
London Tonight
Wales at 6
Central at 6
Granada Reports
Lookaround
Calender
UTV Live.
Etc.

If they’d have gone with ITV News Meridian News for short bulletins, I can guarantee this forum would not have liked it

No. Just ITV Meridian News.

The most confusing news programme name to casual viewers that I've seen on the EPG is on BBC One:

"Look East (West)''

Westcountry live would be nice tbh. if they can bring back the name Wales at six then who knows

"Look East (West)''

Should come with a warning for viewers to not actually ‘Look East West’ to prevent permanent eye damage.

It would have to be called Westcountry Half Live as either the east or west bulletin is pre-recorded.

I was thinking that earlier. Especially the weekend news which is around 3 minutes now including the weather. This is quite poor considering it is the only bulletin all day at weekends.

The weather during mid morning and afternoon need not come back however as they were pointless and only a reminder that there used to be regional news at these times and there is no longer. Id rather more news than weather to be honest.

True. The lunchtime news should be 3 minutes but have the weekend news back to 15 minutes. I liked the mid morning national and regional news during this morning. if they brought it back that would be great.

They can’t have a sponsor for the news though...
