Vice Media’s nightly news show—creatively titled Vice News Tonight—will officially debut at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 26 on HBO. If that date stands out to you, it’s because it’s the first night of the presidential debates.
Vice News Tonight will then air each weeknight in that slot. The show will be available on HBO Now, HBO Go, HBO On Demand and other affiliate platforms.
“The nightly news hasn’t changed its format in 60 years, whereas the way most viewers—particularly younger viewers—consume information has changed dramatically,” said Josh Tyrangiel, executive vp of content and news for Vice News Tonight, in an announcement. “We understand that people aren’t going to watch Vice News Tonight out of obligation. We’re going to have to earn people’s time and attention with great reporting and original forms of storytelling, something Vice has excelled at for several years now.”
