Regional news on ITV was refreshed, along with all other presentation, on 14 January 2013. Channel Report and Channel News were renamed ‘ITV News Channel TV’, and the programme received a new set as part of the makeover – bringing it in line with the other ITV plc regional programmes in the UK.
ITV News Channel TV continues to be preceded by an ident – albeit a network branded and voiced ident – introducing the programme. Idents into the local news among the ITV plc regions have been absent for a decade.
