STV is to broadcast a short news bulletin just before 8pm on weekdays, starting next Monday.

Says a media release issued by the broadcasters: “The new weeknight news bulletins will be broadcast live from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, reinforcing STV’s commitment to delivering quality, regional news. The programmes, up to 60 seconds in duration, will be presented by STV’s late bulletin news presenters.”

Elizabeth Partyka, deputy director for channels, is quoted, as saying: “News content is at the core of STV’s broadcast commitment as we seek to deliver the most local news offering in the UK. These additional nightly bulletins will bring viewers all the latest headlines at peak time and further enhance STV’s regional news offering.”
