Tom Bradby is set to become the main presenter of ITV News at Ten as part of a new-look line-up.

The move means the bulletin will return to a single anchor format, which will mostly be fronted by Bradby, who is stepping down as the programme's political editor.

News at Ten is one of the best known and loved news brands in the country and I have hugely enjoyed working for it in 25 years on the road with ITV News. The chance to help lead it into a new era is a unique and incredibly exciting challenge – and, given the programme’s heritage, a great honour, too.

On occasions the show will be hosted by co-anchor Julie Etchingham and international affairs editor Rageh Omar.

As part of the shake-up, Mark Austin will move to co-anchor the early evening news with Mary Nightingale - renewing their previous award-winning partnership.

After eight really enjoyable years on News at Ten I leave the show in great shape, as current RTS Daily News Programme of Year, and in good hands. I look forward to joining the evening news programme. It’s an exciting challenge and also means a bit more sleep.

One of television's best known presenters, Alastair Stewart, will regularly anchor both the ITV News at 1.30pm and 6.30pm.

Following an exciting few months covering every twist and turn of Election 2015, I’m delighted to continue presenting and reporting for ITV News at Ten in this fascinating new political landscape we find ourselves in.

From covering the biggest stories affecting our viewers to exclusive investigative journalism, I’m looking forward to dedicating more time to ITV’s award-winning current affairs programming, across special national events,Tonight and Exposure.
