The network will overhaul its nightly 90-minute weekday news bulletins, which will now be broadcast from Sydney and Melbourne.

The Sydney, Brisbane and Perth bulletins will be produced in Sydney, while the Melbourne and Adelaide bulletins will be looked after in Melbourne.

The weekday weather report will move to a national model.

Some local reporters, crews and camera operators will remain employed in Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

Studio 10 will continue to air from 8am-midday on weekdays, but some presenters, journalists and staff have been cut.

The Project will not be affected by any of the changes.

In May, Network 10 closed its news, entertainment and lifestyle website 10 Daily, just two years after its launch.

In 2017, the company formerly known as Ten Network Holdings went into voluntary receivership and was later acquired by US broadcaster CBS.

CBS merged with Viacom in December last year.
