Macmillan Media is a multimedia company covering the UK and Ireland, working in Glasgow, Belfast, Dublin, Manchester and London, and owned by former BBC and ITN foreign correspondent Michael Macmillan.

Daybreak regional news[edit]

Until January 2013, Macmillan Media produced Daybreak Northern Ireland weekdays at 06.15, 07.15 and 08.15. UTV, the local ITV contractor had not produced the bulletin since December 1994 due to a dispute between GMTV and UTV. UTV were replaced during GMTV (now Daybreak) by Reuters, followed by ITN, then Macmillan Media.

Macmillan Media began providing the GMTV news bulletins in Central and Northern Scotland. The two bulletins, both known as Daybreak Scotland shared the same team, and were broadcast from the same building in Glasgow.

It took over the contract when GMTV did not renew STV's contract to supply early morning Scotland Today and North Today bulletins. STV had supplied GMTV with its news since the breakfast channel took over from TV-am in 1993.[1] From its Glasgow office, Macmillan Media began its Scottish service on 3 December 2007.[2]

From January 2013 ITV Daybreak bulletins were provided by UTV and STV.
