BBC News 24 set
News 24 reports about 12 stories an hour, seven days a week
BBC News 24 is launching a daily "best of" programme showing highlights of the BBC's news output from across all its television platforms.

Presented by Jane Hill and Chris Eakin, News 24 Tonight will go out every weekday between 7 and 8pm, starting on September 26th.

It will draw on the One and Six O' clock News bulletins, Breakfast, BBC World and from the BBC's regional and national newsrooms in the UK.

News 24 editorial director Mark Popescu said: 'Viewers will now know exactly where to find a comprehensive round-up of the day's top stories from the bulletins and the best of the BBC's coverage from around the nations and regions.'

Viewing figures this year have seen News 24 in the lead for rolling news channels every month, achieving an average monthly reach of 10.7m. Sky News' average reach is 9.4m and ITV News attracts 6m.
