CNN refreshed its on air look today. The bolder on-screen lower thirds are in the color scheme of black, white and red. The topic banner slides on and after a few moments, slides up to reveal a sub-headline or the name and title of the interviewee.

The crawl still exists throughout much of the programming day alternating between and headlines. The early morning shows adjust the lower third up slightly to accommodate national weather reports. Another new features, the twitter handle of the anchor of a particular show alternates with the show title in the lower right.
