News programsEdit

POP TV's current news programming consists of the main 24UR ("24Hours") News, 24UR popoldne ("24Hours Afternoon"), 24UR zvečer ("24Hours at Night"), 24UR Vreme ("24Hours Weather") and Preverjeno! ("Confirmed!").

Within 24UR, the following segments are currently airing: "POP IN", "Vizita" ("Medical visit"), "24UR Inšpektor" ("24Hours Inspector") and "24UR Fokus" ("24Hours Focus").

24UREdit

The current hosts of the show are two hosting pairs: Darja Zgonc & Edi Pucer, and Jani Muhič & Petra Krčmar. Weekdays the show is hosted by one pair and the pairs exchange each week. Weekend shows are hosted by individual hosts from each pair.

The show is criticized as having a left-wing bias. It is often accused by the Slovenian right-wing party SDS to not report about the Slovenian "underground" political corruption that SDS believes to come from many former members of the Slovenian Communist Party that ruled during the era of socialism in Slovenia and still have a huge influence on Slovenian state-owned companies and left-wing political parties.

24UR's milestonesEdit

POP TV has been airing its main news program, 24UR, since it commenced its official broadcasts on 15 December 1995. In the beginning, the show aired from 7:30pm to 8pm, and was hosted by Drago Balažič (sports news by Franci Petek, weather forecast by Miran Trontelj).

From April 1996, Darja Zgonc and Boštjan Lajovic took over the hosting of the show as the first hosting couple. The pair hosted the show between Monday and Thursday. From Friday to Sunday, the show was hosted by Tamara Vonta and Drago Balažič, individually.

In 1997, the show introduced a second hosting pair: Nataša Pirc Musar and Sandi Salkič.

In 1998, the show was redesigned and began 15 minutes earlier, at 7:15pm.

In September 1999, the show had a 47% audience share, and with it, overcame the main news on TV SLO 1 - the first channel of the public service broadcaster RTV SLO, TV Dnevnik. From that day, 24UR became the most watched news programme in Slovenia. It still holds this title until this day.

Matjaž Tanko, a Slovenian hosting legend, along with Tamara Vonta came as a new hosting pair in January 2001.

From 2003, the show lasts for one full hour, from 7 to 8pm.

On POP TV's 13th birthday (15 December 2008), the studio and the show's design were updated to the most modern technology available at that time. The show started to air in HD quality and 16:9 aspect ratio.
