The main evening programme (branded Newyddion) is broadcast each weekday evening between 19:30 and 20:00, with shorter editions airing throughout the day and at varying times on Saturday and Sunday evenings.

Five-minute updates are broadcast at midday, mid-afternoon (14:00–14:05, 15:00–15:05) and evenings (20:55–21:00).

Dewi Llwyd, who presented the programme for almost 30 years, was dropped from the presentation team in 2013.[1]

S4C weather forecasts are now broadcast in the news programme after BBC Cymru Wales moved into its new headquarters in Central Square, Cardiff.


Newyddion won the 2012 BAFTA Cymru Award for News Coverage for a special programme broadcast from New York to mark the tenth anniversary of the 11 September 2001 attacks.[2]

At the 2013 BAFTA Cymru Awards ceremony Newyddion was mistakenly awarded the News Coverage award. The award was later correctly presented to ITV Cymru Wales.[3]

At the 2015 BAFTA Cymru Awards Newyddion 9 was awarded the News Coverage Award for a special programme on the Paris Attacks.

They also won the News Coverage Award at the 2016 BAFTA Cymru awards for a programme about the refugee crisis.


Viewing figures for Newyddion range from 180,000 to 250,000 according to S4C's weekly ratings report.[4]
