ARD-aktuell has been the central television newsroom of the ARD since 1977.

ARD-aktuell is a joint institution of the ARD. It is located at the NDR (Norddeutscher Rundfunk) in Hamburg-Lokstedt. The basis of the work of ARD-aktuell is an administrative agreement of all nine ARD institutions, in which the organization of the editorial office and the basic structure of the programs are defined.

ARD-aktuell produces Tagesschau, Tagesthemen, Nachtmagazin and the news broadcast of the television channel tagesschau24. All formats are broadcast live. At ARD-aktuell, about 300 employees work in editorial and production.[1] The editorial board is divided into two major areas: a planning team develops the program ideas and organizes contributions and live connections. The broadcasting team is responsible for the content of the broadcasts.
