Three Telediario editions a day are broadcast domestically on La 1 and 24 Horas and internationally on TVE Internacional. Special international editions of Telediario are also aired on TVE Internacional every day.

The term Telediario in Spain has become synonymous with television news, with people saying 'put on the Telediario' when simply referring to news. "Le quedan dos telediarios" (he's got two news programmes left) is a common colloquial Spanish expression to suggest someone's days are numbered, either literally (about to die) or metaphorically (about to be removed from a position of responsibility).

Programme formatEdit

The programme is generally presented by a sole main newsreader with an additional sports news presenter. Most items will be made up of reports and are generally preceded and followed by the correspondent reporting live (Directo) from the scene of the story. The 60-minute programme is followed by a weather report known as El Tiempo. The entire running time including El Tiempo is about 70 minutes.

The breakfast programme, Telediario Matinal, consists of a rolling news service and airs for two and a half hours from 06:30 esenters and correspondent. Pilar García Muñiz presents the afternoon edition (Telediario 1) at 15:00 CET, with Sergio Sauca presenting the sports section since 1989. Ana Blanco and Jesús Álvarez (sports) present the flagship evening bulletin (Telediario 2) at 21:00 CET. Telediario Matinal is presented by Ana Ibáñez and Diego Losada with Roi Groba presenting the sports section. Weekend bulletins at 3pm and 9pm are presented by Pedro Carreño and Raquel Martínez, with Arsenio Cañada and Nico de Vicente presenting the sports section.
