MediaWorks’ multi-platform TV, radio and digital news service Newshub will launch on Monday 1 February.

The service will provide the latest news and in-depth analyses, with a dedicated, state-of-the-art app and website and TV and radio news bulletins across MediaWorks’ channels – as well as fuelling news content across other programmes such as Paul Henry.

Newshub Live at 6pm will be presented by Mike McRoberts and Hilary Barry who will celebrate 11 years of presenting the news in February. Newsworthy will be rebranded Newshub Late. Sam Hayes will now anchor the programme without Dave Farrier, who is leaving MediaWorks to further his interest in making documentaries.

Newshub Midday will be presented by Jeff McTainsh. The weekend television news will be presented by Melissa Davies and Tom McRae who are both returning from their overseas posts.

Operating 24/7, Newshub focus will provide audiences across all platforms with stories and information relevant to them, with a strong emphasis on digital, servicing web, mobile devices and social media.

“Newshub combines the power of our radio, TV and digital newsrooms and is focused on providing tailored content to all platforms,” said group head of news Mark Jennings.
