The Nightshift is an overnight regional television programme broadcast on STV in Northern and Central Scotland.

The service, broadcast live on Thursday to Sunday nights from STV's transmission control centre at Pacific Quay in Glasgow, features highlights of archived STV programmes, STV News bulletins, showbiz news items and archive aerial footage of Scotland, as well as texts & e-mails read out live on air by an out-of-vision presenter. The overnight strand initially began as a local six-week pilot programme in the STV Central region on Thursday 22 April 2010 before launching a second edition for the STV North region on 13 July 2010.

On Tuesday 12 April 2011, a separate edition of The Nightshift began airing in each of STV's four sub-regional areas used for news opt-outs and local advertising:

⁕Glasgow and West Central Scotland

⁕Edinburgh and East Central Scotland

⁕Aberdeen, the North East, Highlands and Islands

⁕Dundee, Tayside and North East Fife

The sub-regional programmes were axed in October 2011 and replaced with a single pan-regional edition serving both of the Northern and Central areas. As of December 2011, the programme was cut from seven to four nights a week, airing on Thursday - Sunday nights. News opt-outs for the four sub-regions on Thursdays and Fridays were retained.
