HBO cancels Vice News, Tim Pool says it’s ‘long overdue’

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 on HBO will officially come to an end in September when HBO’s deal with Vice is up. Vice says it expects to announce a home for the newscast in the coming weeks.

The architect of that show, news chief Josh Tyrangiel, will depart Vice this summer after nearly four years of, per a memo he sent to staff, “harrowing challenges and huge highs” with the company.

Vice Media announced Monday that Jesse Angelo, the former publisher of The New York Post, would become the company’s president of global news and entertainment.

“Amid the changes at Vice News, CEO Nancy Dubuc has tapped Jesse Angelo, the former chairman and CEO of the New York Post, for a newly created role overseeing news, television and digital at Vice. She announced the staffing changes in an email to Vice employees Monday morning. “’Jesse is joining us to create expanded platform opportunities and franchises for all our great talent and the content we are making every day,’” Dubuc wrote in the note, which a Vice spokeswoman shared with THR.

Vice News Tonight led all nightly news casts with nine news and documentary Emmy nominations in 2018. The program averaged about 600,000 viewers per night. Vice originally contracted with HBO in 2013 to create a newsmagazine, and in 2016 the nightly newscast began.

Tim Pool was the first reporter to join Vice years, now being independent, did a full video on the news of the cancellation. Check it out below.
