Warner Brothers Discovery confirms Newshub shutdown

From Checkpoint, 5:15 pm on 10 April 2024

Newshub staff had their fears confirmed today with the announcement the news operation will shut down in July and nearly 300 people will lose their jobs. The proposal by owners Warner Brothers to close down the newsroom and news programmes six weeks ago sent shockwaves through the industry. Staff made various attempts to save the organisation, but it wasn't enough to prevent today's news. The last six pm news bulletin will air on July 5th.
