HLN Brings Back Headline News

By Chris Ariens 

While still officially known as HLN, the CNN news network is embracing its role delivering Headline News.

Starting today, HLN will incorporate “Headline News” onto the screen via bump-in’s, graphics and a logo treatment during dayside hours and from 6 a.m. to Noon ET on weekends.

The network is also introducing the Headlines Now segment at the top and bottom of every hour from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. It’s a 90-second (or so) whip-around of the day’s biggest headlines.

Headline News launched 36 years ago, on Jan. 1, 1982. First known as CNN2, the channel was renamed Headline News in 1983. In 2008, the network officially changed its name to HLN.
