News, Sport & Weather is a regular Sky News programme providing news and sport "in 20 minutes, every 20 minutes". The programme airs daily 8 pm – 9 pm and additionally 2 pm – 5 pm at weekends, which is in 15-minute segments.

During early 2010, the evening weekday NSW broadcasts were covered by various presenters. From 10 September these are presented Monday–Friday by Martin Stanford - after the axing of his show SkyNews.com. The Friday evening edition continues to run from 7 pm, whereas Monday–Thursday they start from 8 pm.

In early 2011, Sky News started to scale back this format. It now currently only exists for one hour in weekdays from 8 pm, and is now in 20-minute news wraps. The 9 pm hour was replaced by Sky News At Nine and Press Preview. It is still broadcast for two hours on Friday nights from 7 pm. Bank Holiday editions are now replaced by 30-minute Sky News bulletins.
