TVA Nouvelles

TVA Nouvelles is the news division of TVA, a French language television network in Canada.

Programs produced by the division include nightly local and national newscasts branded as TVA Nouvelles, as well as the news magazine program JE. The division also owns and operates the 24-hour news channel Le Canal Nouvelles.


In the mornings, TVA Nouvelles airs as headline news segments during the network's breakfast television program Salut, Bonjour!. These segments are anchored by Gino Chouinard weekdays from Montreal, and Ève-Marie Lortie on weekends from Quebec City.


At noon, TVA Nouvelles airs for one hour weekdays and half an hour on weekends. Two weekday editions are produced, with Pierre Bruneau anchoring from Montreal for stations in western Quebec markets (Gatineau, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières and Rouyn-Noranda),[1] and Pierre Jobin anchoring from Quebec City for stations in eastern Quebec (Carleton-sur-Mer, Rimouski, Rivière-du-Loup and Saguenay). Both programs also have segments set aside for local inserts presented by local anchors.

As most viewers in Canada outside of Quebec receive TVA's Montreal or Gatineau stations, the edition anchored by Bruneau is seen in most of Canada, although parts of New Brunswick receive the Jobin edition.


At 5 p.m. weekdays, TVA Nouvelles airs for 1.5 hours. This airing consists of a one-hour program anchored by Bruneau,[1] followed by half-hour local programs anchored by a local journalist at each TVA station. The local anchors are Pénélope Garon in Carleton-sur-Mer, Pierre Donais in Gatineau, Martin Blanchet in Rimouski, Cindy Simard in Rivière-du-Loup, Katherine Vandal in Rouyn-Noranda, Jean-François Tremblay in Saguenay, Sonia Lavoie in Sherbrooke and Marie-Claude Paradis-Desfossés in Trois-Rivières. Bruneau continues as anchor of the final half-hour in Montreal,[1] and Jobin anchors in Quebec City;[2] at 6:30, Bruneau continues to anchor for a further half-hour which airs only on LCN.[3]

On weekends, the 5 p.m. program does not air, with only a half-hour edition airing at 6 p.m.


The main national edition of TVA Nouvelles, airing at 10 p.m. for half an hour, is anchored by Sophie Thibault weekdays[4] and Cindy Royer on weekends.[3]

The weekend edition may be delayed to 10:30 or 11 p.m. depending on network scheduling.


The news magazine program JE is anchored by Annie Gagnon and Michel Jean.
