The name for Stuff’s new TV bulletin replacing Newshub

Stuff has revealed the logo and name of its new 6pm TV bulletin that will replace Newshub at 6 from July.

It will be now be called ThreeNews.

Over the years it has had different names ranging from 3 National News, to 3 News, and recently Newshub.

Samantha Hayes, who currently hosts Newshub at 6 will present the new bulletin – which will be hour-long on weekdays and half an hour in weekends – on TV channel Three and the 3 Now app when it begins on 6 July.

“Before we had Newshub we had 3 News, we felt that the name ‘ThreeNews’ was both a nod to our storied history, but also different enough to show that this isn’t a continuation of our older news offering but an evolution,” Warner Brothers Discovery (WBD) networks head Juliet Peterson said.

“Stuff isn’t just reproducing what we’ve always had. It’s going to be an exciting new bulletin while still retaining Three’s unique touch and approach.

Several senior reporters and producers from Newshub will join Stuff journalists around the country to produce the programme.

“We are producing something that will be both familiar and fresh, a great marriage of the Three brand and Stuff’s live and lively news ethos,” Stuff Digital managing director Nadia Tolich said.

In April, Newshub’s owners WBD announced it had made a deal with Stuff to create a replacement 6pm news bulletin.

WBD had announced the closure of Newshub in March to curb losses it described as unsustainable.

It also axed its show, The Block NZ, and will sell the four townhouses later in 2024.
