Bell Media says the two-hour program will go “beyond the headlines” of news stories spanning the GTA, national and global issues. It promises to feature live reports as well as interviews with top newsmakers of the day.

Nair joined CP24 in December following a brief stint as one of the anchors of Bell Media’s Quibi news content. Prior to joining Bell last March, she’d been anchoring for CBC News Network for a decade. Dixon returned to CP24 in 2020 after two years as the weekend anchor at CTV Toronto. Prior to that, he produced and anchored evening and late-night news at CHCH Hamilton for a decade.

“With two veteran journalists at the helm in Reshmi Nair and Nick Dixon, CP24 TONIGHT delivers GTA viewers with even more of what they expect from CP24 – trusted coverage of the stories that matter most,” said Michael Melling, General Manager, CP24, in a release. “We look forward to launching this compelling new weeknight program in primetime, so our viewers can start and end their day with CP24.”

“More than ever, we need a place to dissect and discuss the news of the day – here in the GTA and beyond,” added Nair. “We’re going to tackle the pressing issues that have come to light during the global pandemic by digging in deep with newsmakers and holding panel discussions with voices that deserve to be elevated and heard.”
