ITV News is the branding of news programmes on the British television network ITV. ITV has a long tradition of television news. Independent Television News (ITN) was founded to provide news bulletins for the network in 1955, and has since continued to produce all news programmes on ITV. The channel’s news coverage has won awards from the Royal Television Society, Emmy Awards and BAFTAs. Between 2004 and 2008, the ITV Evening News held the title of “RTS News Programme of the Year”. The flagship ITV News at Ten has won numerous BAFTA awards, and also being named “RTS News Programme of the Year” in 2011 and 2015.

ITV News has the second-largest television news audience in the United Kingdom, second only to BBC News (and followed by other broadcasters such as Sky News, Channel 4 News and 5 News). However, its £43 million annual news budget is dwarfed by that of the publicly funded BBC, which spends £89.5 million annually on news-gathering, plus a further £23.1 million on its rolling news channel.

Initially, all national news programmes on ITV carried ITN’s own brand. As the ITV network consolidated from the mid 1990s onwards, ITN branding of news programmes was eventually dropped in March 1999 following the introduction of the ITV News brand. ITN remains the producer of all the national ITV News programmes.
