In the wake of recent speculation, TV3 wishes to confirm that late night bulletin 3 News: Nightline will take a break at the end of this year.

In 2014, TV3 will be taking a new approach to late night news with The Paul Henry Show, which will see Paul wrapping up the day’s events every weeknight at 10.30pm.

The Nightline brand remains a valued part of the 3 News stable and will sit in reserve for future years.

The change will result in an overall increase in headcount. Most staff associated with Nightline already work across 3 News’ stable of programmes, and some may work on The Paul Henry Show, which will have a strong news component.

Director of News and Current Affairs, Mark Jennings says: “Nightline has been a great programme for us over many years and produced some of our best broadcasters, but the landscape is due for change and Paul Henry will lead that change in later evening viewing.”
