On August 11th, CNN/US debuted their new lower thirds. At midnight, CNNI unveiled their own lower third update — the same as CNN’s, except their “CNN” icon is red instead of white, and the live bug is the opposite color as well.
Great to see CNNI and CNN going to a more similar style of graphics, given the recent simulcasts (and the nightly simulcasts of AC360 and CNN Tonight, along with the weekly simulcasts of State of the Union and Fareed Zakaria GPS). For continuity sake, well done.
The debut occurred during Natalie Allen’s block of CNN Newsroom:
