RTÉ News: Nine O'Clock
The News at One launched on the 16 October 1989 together with an extended daytime television service on RTÉ 1. The original presenter was Éamonn Lawlor, who had returned to Ireland after ten years as Europe correspondent for RTÉ News. A unified look across all RTÉ news output was immediately introduced with the News at One using the same theme music, opening titles and promos as the early evening Six One bulletin.
The One O'Clock News is usually presented by either Aengus Mac Grianna, Una O Hagan, John Finnerty or Eileen Wheelan. Aengus and Una work on the same days sharing the early or late shift. Likewise for John and Eileen. These changes have been in place since the retirement of Ken Hammond. The programme is shorter than other RTÉ News bulletins, running for about 20 minutes.
Until 2009, RTÉ broadcast a short Irish language news summary Cinnlinte Nuachta following RTÉ News: One O'Clock. This broadcast was discontinued in 2009 following Nuacht RTÉ's move from Montrose to Baile na hAbhann in County Galway. RTÉ now broadcasts a business news update as part of the RTÉ News: One O'Clock bulletin in its place.
