Singapore Tonight is a long-running flagship daily local news programme on Channel NewsAsia which runs daily from 22:00 until 23:00 SST/HKT (21:00 until 22:00 WIB/BKK), providing a round-up of all the day's events around Singapore and coverage of breaking news. The highly rated programme is currently presented by Steven Chia and Dawn Tan.

Up until early July 2008, the show was aired live only in Singapore with a replay available internationally at 00:00 until 00:30 SST/HKT (01:00 until 01:30 WIB/BKK). In addition, a few segments of the show are available on the international edition of Asian Home News at 22:30 until 23:00 SST/HKT (22:30 until 00:00 WIB/BKK) and 10:30 until 11:00 SST/HKT (11:30 until 12:00 WIB/BKK).

From 31 March 2014, the programme was expanded to 1 hour to incorporate the Singapore Business segment (previously aired as Business Singapore / Singapore Business Tonight at 22:30 (GMT+8) ) and features two main anchors, Steven Chia and Dawn Tan. John Leong replaced Steven Chia on a permanent basis from 7 November onwards.[1]

This is only one of two main English national newscasts available in Singapore; the other being News 5 Tonight.
