I don't believe this.

The encaps of the regions match the names of their news programmes, except for Tyne Tees (North East Tonight), so I don't see this happening. It was said in February that the regional anmes were going to be kept for News and local programming. HTV was replaced becuase it sounded to simular to ITV.

If it was true there is no way calendar would become ITV News North East, as that would leave Tyne Tees nameless! and Border News would not become ITV News North!!!

Hope it's not true, but i doubt the only new thing would be Titles as Granada's set is only just over a year old.

So is everyone else's!

It is confirmed that the ITV regional News programmes names will be axed early next year.

following the suit of HTV Wales News and HTV West News.


Surely this post is flawed by stating that they will follow the suit of HTV where they both changed from

HTV Wales News, HTV West News (effectively) to
ITV Wales News, ITV West News.

Surely they arent going to change the above two to:-
ITV News Wales, ITV News West? IT doesnt make any sense really! But I can see the regional names eventually going along the lines of the ITV Central News etc!

Thats a more likely scenario!
ITV Border News and ITV Calendar News etc

What about Scottish, Grampian, UTV and Channel though?
They aren't owned by ITVplc so they wouldn't be affected would they?

I hope you're right, if only every region still had their own idents!
Border's were absolute rubbish but at least they were their own!

He is right, since Channel, Grampian, Scottish, UTV are not owned by ITV PLC, they are not affected.

"ITV News Central" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue easily does it?

Can you imagine Bob Warman saying at the end of his bulletin:-

"From the ITV News Central newsroom, goodnight!"

What a load of tripe! Rolling Eyes
