Dagsrevyen (English: The Daily Review) is the daily evening news programme for the Norwegian television channel NRK1, the main channel of the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK), broadcast at 19:00. In 2007, the programme started airing simultaneously on NRK's dedicated news channel NRK2, but this arrangement ended that same year. Dagsrevyen's first newscast was broadcast in 1958 and it has kept its name since. It is Norway's most viewed programme, with daily ratings of around one million. Around 200 people are involved in its production, with headquarters at Marienlyst in Oslo.

Dagsrevyen aims at fewer, but longer and more extensive stories than its competitors. NRK hosts a tight network of domestic journalists in addition to international correspondence offices, though NRK also uses footage acquired through the European Broadcasting Union. The show is hosted by two anchors. The Saturday and Sunday broadcasts are dubbed Lørdagsrevyen (The Saturday Review) and Søndagsrevyen (The Sunday Review), respectively.

The editor of television news is Solveig Tvedt and the lead news editor is Stein Bjøntegård. [1]

Other news-related broadcasts on NRK include Dagsrevyen 21, Kveldsnytt, Standpunkt (closed down), RedaksjonEN, Urix and Dagsnytt, plus the radio shows Ukeslutt, Dagsnytt 18 and Her og Nå. NRK also broadcasts daily newscasts from most regional offices.

In journalism, local news refers to coverage of events, by the news, in a local context that would not be an interest of another locality, or otherwise be of national or international scope. Local news, in contrast to national or international news, caters to the news of their regional and local communities; they focus on more localized issues and events. Some key features of local newsrooms includes regional politics, weather, business, and human interest stories. Local news readership has been declining in recent years, according to a recent study. And as more and more television consumers tap into streamed programming, local news viewership is beginning to decline. Nikki Usher, an associate professor at the College of Media at the University of Illinois, argued in The Complicated Future of Local News that "critical and comprehensive local news is a recent invention, not a core element of the history of American democracy.”
