BBC London News is the BBC's regional television news programme for the English region encompassing London and the surrounding areas. Its local competitor is ITV News London, which is produced by ITN for ITV London. BBC London News is broadcast seven days a week on BBC One in London and the surrounding areas, with short bulletins during BBC Breakfast, after the BBC News at One, and after the BBC News at Ten. The flagship programme airs between 18:30 and 18:55 each weekday evening and is usually presented by Riz Lateef. Weekend bulletins are broadcast on Saturday lunchtime and early evening and on Sunday evening. Lateef became the main presenter of the flagship programme in March 2006 when she replaced Emily Maitlis who left to join the BBC News channel and BBC Two's Newsnight. Weather forecasts are normally provided by former BBC national forecaster Peter Cockroft, during the weekday evening and late bulletins, or Wendy Hurrell, Kate Kinsella or Elizabeth Rizzini during BBC Breakfast, lunchtime and weekends. During the summer season the forecast is normally presented from the roof of the programme's production base at BBC Broadcasting House which is also the home of BBC London 94.9 radio station, but Cockroft is also seen from venues of some of the events or outside broadcasts on the programme.
