The Late News was a late evening news programme on British television network ITV, produced by ITN and broadcast on Fridays at 11pm between January 2008 and March 2009. Currently the weekend late news programme on ITV is referred to as The Late News

The thirty-minute news programme, introduced alongside a revamped News at Ten that aired from Monday to Thursday, enabled ITV to air dramas and entertainment programming past 10pm on Friday evenings.[1] The Late News was initially presented by News at Ten newscasters Mark Austin and Julie Etchingham. After two months, The Late News was realigned with ITV News branding and presented by one newscaster, although continued to be introduced by continuity announcers and billed in television listings as The Late News until its demise. Following an increase in viewing figures for News at Ten, ITV axed The Late News in February 2009 in order for the 10pm programme to air every weeknight at that time.[2]
