STV bosses have announced that popular live show The Hour is moving from its current daytime slot at 5pm to a brand new weekly peak time slot.
The new show will launch in its weekly fixture in the autumn complete with a new set and a fantastic range of guests, features and online events. The presenting team for the re-launch will be announced in due course.
Early next year, STV will launch a spin-off feature series in an extension of The Hour brand, including a brand new travel series.
Elizabeth Partyka, Deputy Director of Channels, at STV, said: “The Hour has gone from strength to strength since its launch two years ago, and has established itself as one of the most popular daytime television shows in Scotland.
“Moving to a weekly primetime slot is a fantastic achievement for the show and a natural evolution of The Hour brand, and I am thrilled about the opportunity to bring the show to a new and broader audience.”
Throughout the month of June, The Hour has welcomed a series of weekly guest presenters to the studio.
This week’s co-host, actor and writer Tony Roper, follows star interior designer John Amabile, actor Joe McGann and comedian and actor Sanjeev Kohli.
The current show comes to a well-deserved break on Friday July 22 with a string of guest presenters joining Michelle McManus on the sofa of Scotland’s only magazine show in the coming weeks.
