But i hate the way overnight they have a news update at the top of the hour followed by the way itn broadcasted the news during the day surely they can show more live updates, live broadcasts and maybe certain talk-ins during the night that might suit the viewing age at that time. The review is not what they want to see.
That's all very well, but ITN doesn't have the money to produce news for probably only a few hundred viewers during the night. It's simply not really worthwhile, which is a shame really, because I've stopped up late many a night and wanted to watch the news on ITN.
Saying that, however, it's not as if there isn't someone there anyway to do the news. The updates at the top of the hour are live, so surely they could perhaps even hire another presenter and let them do half of the night each, with one doing ITV News when not presenting on ITN.
Or even just do half an hour of live news and half and hour of review - as per News24 style! The lovely Heather McCarthy managed to do five hours every night so surely one presenter on ITN could.
but is the review live? surely not if he/she is repeating himself/herself every hour?

No, it's obviously recorded beforehand. Unless the presenter can manage to change from one studio to another during the Review sting.
