UK Media regulator Ofcom has given the green light for the launch of Rupert Murdoch’s forthcoming opinionated television news channel.
Launching in Spring, the channel will be called News UK TV and aiming for coverage as a right-leaning television news channel.
The MediaGuardian reports the plan for News UK TV to be an evening-only service, which will be on air for around four or five hours a night. The proposed lineup will start with an early-evening politics show, a daily political debate programme and an evening news bulletin.
Further details about the channel are yet to be announced.
