ITV New Launches The Rundown

News Image
ITV News has launched a new youth focused news service, The Rundown.

The service will be broadcast daily through Instagram and other social media platforms, to reach an audience aged between 14-17.

Now live, The Rundown has been created after research with the target age group of 14-17 year olds and is tailored to suit their style of news consumption, whilst meeting the same high broadcasting standards as ITV News.

Made for mobile, content for The Rundown will be produced daily by a dedicated team of producers and presenters. New episodes will be released at 3.45pm to coincide with school and college closing times. The service will explain the most important international, UK and regional stories of the day, without trivialising the subject matter, something which participants in the audience research revealed was very important to them. Viewers will also be able to swipe through directly from some items to more in-depth coverage of the same story on the ITV News website.

The bulletins will be fronted by a team of presenters, hailing from across the country to ensure representation of the anticipated viewership.

Michael Jermey, Director of News, ITV, said: "For decades ITV News has been telling the stories that matter to a diverse television audience. With the introduction of The Rundown, we're going beyond TV to speak directly to digitally savvy teenagers, with engaging, accessible news that meets the high standards expected of a PSB news provider. I am sure that The Rundown will become highly-valued viewing for young people across Britain."
