RTL Híradó (English: RTL News) is a nightly newcast on RTL Klub, the largest commercial TV channel in Hungary. It broadcasts every evening at 18:00 on RTL Klub, as well as in the late evening on RTL II. Its main competitors are M1 Híradó on the public channel M1, and Tények on the commercial TV2.
RTL Híradó underwent a rebrand on 15 October 2016 introducing a new set design and graphics package with four squares in a circle as its logo. Similar concepts were implemented across the other news programs of RTL Klub, such as Időjárás (weather) and Fókusz. All these graphics were created by the Budapest-based Play Dead Studio. The Geogrotesque font, used in on-air typography, is also used by sister channel RTL Gold since its launch in July 2017.
This came a year before the rebrand of RTL Klub on 2 October 2017 to celebrate its twentieth anniversary. RTL Híradó’s sister newscast in the Netherlands, RTL Nieuws, had undergone a similar rebrand in May 2014.
