East Midlands Today was launched on 7 January 1991, having previously been a part of Midlands Today, which now solely covers the West Midlands region. The split arose from criticisms of Midlands Today as being too focused on West Midlands coverage, although a service of separate opt-out bulletins for the region had been provided during the eighties.

East Midlands Today covers Derbyshire (except western High Peak), Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Rutland and South Kesteven in Lincolnshire.
