Couldn't find a CBS News Streaming topic so I thought I'd start one so we can keep track of any changes. Today 9/6, CBS News announced John Dickerson would be anchoring a new show, CBS News Prime Time, at 7PM ET, which was previously branded as "Newshour" and featured a rotating group of anchors. John will anchor from Studio 57, the show will be live Monday - Thursday. Prime Time will go up against ABC News Live's Lindsey Davis and NBC News NOW's Tom Llamas. The graphics are what you'd expect and inline with CBS News' new graphics. Johns style is certainly different compared to his competition. Tonight was Prime Time's debut, below is the first couple minuets. TVNewser has more: https://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/john-dickerson-tapped-to-anchor-cbs-prime-time-streaming-newscast/513632/
CBS News started using new Special Report graphics today. They appear to have built upon the lower thirds CBS Mornings uses. Here is a clip from YouTube showing the new countdown, open, theme, L3's and a custom "Crisis in Ukraine" graphic. As for the music, they obviously modeled after the new CBS News Streaming music, if you listen closely you can hear the melody they use during headlines. -Personally I feel a voice over would actually fit considering how long it takes them to get to the main graphic, maybe they'll continue to have the anchor announce it.Perhaps "Live from CBS News, this is a Special Report". Just feels awkward to me with out something there.
