The television regulator, Ofcom, has announced the changes it would like to see to ITV's coverage in Cumbria and southern Scotland.
ITV's proposal to revert to a full half hour of local Border news in Lookaround has been accepted.
There will also be more tailored coverage in weekend, lunchtime and morning bulletins.
Southern Scotland will also receive an extra 90 minutes of current affairs programming a week. Some of the changes will begin in the autumn.
