HBO Cancels Vice News Tonight, but the Company Plans to Air a Daily Segment Elsewhere

With the cancellation comes the departure of evp Josh Tyrangiel

HBO has canceled Vice Media’s nightly cable news show Vice News Tonight, but the company says it’s looking to find another home for a daily Vice News program.

Vice News Tonight, which airs weekdays at 7:30 p.m. ET, will wrap in September. With the cancellation of the show, Vice’s executive vice president of news Josh Tyrangiel, who spearheaded the effort, will leave the company.

In a memo to Vice staff Monday, Vice CEO Nancy Dubuc said Tyrangiel would remain at the company through the end of June and would consult with the company until the show’s closure.

The cancellation of Vice News Tonight wraps a seven-year-long deal with HBO, which began with a weekly broadcast of Vice documentaries and later expanded to a daily news program.
