STV News at Six is a Scottish regional news programme, covering the two STV franchise areas of Northern and Central Scotland, produced by STV Central (formerly Scottish Television) in the Central region and STV North (formerly Grampian Television) in the Northern region.
The programmes were launched on 23 March 2009, replacing Scotland Today in Central Scotland and North Tonight in Northern Scotland. As of 23 May 2011, three separate editions of STV News at Six are produced each weekday for the East and West of the Central region and for the entire North region (including an opt-out service for Tayside and North East Fife).
The three programmes are produced from studios in Glasgow (West edition), Edinburgh (East edition) and Aberdeen (North edition) with reporters also based at studios in Dundee and Inverness and political correspondents based at Holyrood and Westminster. Freelance correspondents and camera crews are based on the Orkney and Shetland Isles, Wick and Fort William with a permanent Western Isles correspondent based in Stornoway.
In addition to its daily bulletins, STV News also produces some non-news programming including current affairs (Scotland Tonight), sport (STV Rugby) and one-off feature specials and documentaries.
Famous quotes containing the word news:
“I dont have any problem with a reporter or a news person who says the President is uninformed on this issue or that issue. I dont think any of us would challenge that. I do have a problem with the singular focus on this, as if thats the only standard by which we ought to judge a president. What we learned in the last administration was how little having an encyclopedic grasp of all the facts has to do with governing.”
—David R. Gergen (b. 1942)
