As of 23 February 2009, lunchtime and early evening bulletins on weekdays became pan-regional. The remaining sub-regional elements were:
- An 11-minute opt-out during the main 6pm programme
- Localised weather forecast during the 6pm programme
- The full late weeknight bulletins
Both sub-regional editions utilised the same presenter(s) and studio, therefore one of the two opt-outs (depending on the days news) was pre-recorded ‘as live’ shortly before broadcast. Programme titles remained unchanged.
