CNN Tonight features a live hour of the day’s biggest stories, with rotating hosts anchoring the program. Stephen Arnold Music created a collection of music themes all built around a six-note melody, which sonically brands the show open, teases, bumpers, promos, and other in-show elements.

A mix of guitar, strings, piano, bass and drums, the CNN Tonight themes underscore the importance of the program’s place in the channel’s lineup. “There’s a large audience watching live news programming at night—this is prime viewing time for any network,” says Chad Cook, VP/creative director of Stephen Arnold Music. “The theme for this show had to be catchy, strong, and compelling, and at the same time, maintain a journalistic sensibility and integrity.

The CNN primetime lineup also includes Erin Burnett Outfront, an hour-long news program which has been running on CNN since 2011 and also features a custom music theme and package from Stephen Arnold Music. In addition, Stephen Arnold Music has created custom packages for various programming on HLN, CNN, and CNN International.
