TG2 (TeleGiornale 2) is the brand for the news programmes of Rai Due, the Italian state-owned television channel. The programmes are shown several times throughout
the day — domestically on Rai Due, across Europe on Rai News and in other parts of the world on Raitalia. It was launched in 1961 as Telegiornale del Secondo Programma before adopting its current name in 1976. The programmes are generally presented by a single newsreader but with additional newsreaders for sports features.
