BBC Oxford News: 2008-

On 21 April 2008, the South Today Oxford opt-out service was renamed as BBC Oxford News (although this was referred to on-screen as BBC Oxford). New titles and graphics were introduced as part of a on-screen overhaul across the BBC’s national, international and regional news services.

In 2012, the branding of the programmes was rationalised as ‘South Today’, in line with the host service from Southampton.
