This interview with London Live's Head of News and Current Affairs, Vikki Cook, has, as far as I can tell, the first details about London Live's news programmes:

http://ynuk.tv/2014/01/20/london-live-capitals-new-tv-channel/

A 'very conversational style', pace and energy. And no sofa!

Breakfast - 6-9am.
'News, travel, weather, information - everything you need as a Londoner to get up, get out of the house, get to work.'

Lunchtime - 12.30-1.30pm
'A lot of interactivity, a lot of debate. It'll chime in very much with the first edition of the Standard.'

Primetime - 90 minutes (time tba)
'That will ostensibly do two things. One, it'll look very much at entertainment news for Londoners. [Two] We'll have an evening news and current affairs show that'll be very sticky, very noisy, very diverse in opinion. We'll showcase a lot of the Evening Standard and Independent journalists. A much more irreverent look at the day's news.'

People want news from the news, not "interactivity".
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

I'm really looking forward to the launch, but I have to admit that it could go either way. I love the idea of 5 and a half hours a day of local news, but I do wonder whether the focus on the 18-34 age bracket (which I'm just about still in) might make it all a bit 'yoof', which would be a bit of a shame.

What I'd really like to see, especially in the mornings, is the kind of thing that a lot of the US channels have - a very mainstream show with a very local feel. Some US channels do this incredibly well, such as KTLA, which has more viewers in the 25-54 'demo' than anything else in the Los Angeles market at breakfast time - even Good Morning America and the Today show.

Maybe not feasible with London Live's relatively small budget, though.

By the way, for anyone who's missed it, the launch will be on March 31.

But it costs far less to fill time with viewers' e-mails and tweets than it does to do original journalism…

Sticky content refers to content published on a website, which has the purpose of getting a user to return to that particular website or hold their attention and get them to spend longer periods of time at that site.
I'm not sure I'd heard it in the context of TV before, but I suppose that makes sense.

They're filming it in a nightclub to save on studio costs.

And a woman called Vicky will be on stage pulling things from her hoo-ha.
