Northern Life was a daily news programme on Tyne Tees Television, which aired from 6 September 1976 to 2 October 1992. The programme was aired at 6pm on weekday evenings, for some years at 6.25pm, and ran for 30, 35 or 60 minutes at various points in its run.
The programme was the successor to Today at Six, and was replaced by Tyne Tees Today in 1992 following the takeover by Yorkshire Television. The programme had a light-hearted approach and was notable for Paul Frost's monologues towards the end of many of the shows.

For much of its run Northern Life had a split-regional news service integrated into the second part of the programme, with the south of the Tyne Tees region served by the Middlesbrough studio anchored by Teesside-based news reporters such as Andy Kluz.
