'Vice News Tonight' To Air Its Final Episode

"Vice New Tonight" will be airing its final episode this Thursday.  

In April, Vice Media told staff it was pulling the plug on the "Vice News Tonight."

This week’s finale has three segments: 

  • Modern Day Lynchings—Vice News looks into the killing of Rasheem Carter and examines if lynchings are still happening in 2023.
  • Brink of an Intifada—Israel’s far-right government has declared the expansion of settlements in the West Bank a priority.  This episode explores the potential fallout.  
  • E-Carceration—A look into the new face of mass incarceration—the growing use of ankle monitors—and the hidden consequences to people who may not be guilty of any crimes.  

The episode airs on Thursday night at 10 pm ET.

Despite the shutdown of "Vice New Tonight", Vice denies it is abandoning news. 



“We are NOT exiting the news business, but we are changing the shape of Vice News to position the whole Company for long-term opportunities and improve how we deliver important, ground-breaking journalism well into the future,” said an internal staff memo from co-CEOs Bruce Dixon and Hozefa Lokhandwala. 

Earlier this month, Vice Media  filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection to facilitate purchase by a group of creditors. including Fortress Investment Group and Soros Fund Management.
