Prime News is a weeknight news program appearing on HLN, featuring "controversy, opinion, your point of view" (as announced at the beginning of the show). The show airs from 17.00 to 19.00 ET on weeknights while on weekends highlights from the past week are recapped.

Previously known as Prime News Tonight and Prime News with Erica Hill, the program recaps the news of the day, covering any number of subjects at a slower pace than programming on other networks, an example being The Fox Report on Fox News Channel.

Erica Hill and Mike Galanos used to the co-anchor the show. Galanos was reassigned to anchor morning rolling news coverage in 2006 while Hill left the show on 25 January 2008 to take-on a bigger role on the mother network's Anderson Cooper 360. Shortly after Hill's departure, Galanos returned to the programme he once co-hosted a few years earlier. There are occasions where a guest host will take over the show. Past guest hosts have included Vinnie Politan and Jim Moret.

The program consists of news segments from CNN, to discussions about selected subjects with analysts from CNN, to showcasing the most popular stories from and stories from across the nation and world in a different number of segments.

  • "Get to the Point" is a segment on "Prime News" where Galanos asks the tough questions while exploring controversial issues of faith, morals and values.
  • 'Prime News' Investigates is where correspondent Richelle Carey digs deep to give viewers the facts on interesting stories across the country.
