5 News revamped its weekday 6.30pm programme to become “NewsTalk Live” – a dedicated home for topical news debate.
From July 8th, the programme launched a brand new set and a focus on hosting live debates between informative and opinionated guests about the news agenda’s biggest talking points. Viewers that have had their daily digest of the day’s news in Channel 5’s 5pm bulletin are offered this different, engaging proposition for more in-depth analysis and comment on the stories of the day. They also have a chance to make their views about the top stories known. Emma Crosby presents the new programme in addition to continuing to anchor Channel 5 News.
The programme was replaced by 5 News Tonight in April 2014.
