CNN tweaks ticker a day after adding it back

A day after removing the flipper, CNN has made changes to its ticker.

The ticker redebuted yesterday as blue, but today it’s been updated to a white background.

This makes it look a little less awful.

  • I expressed my feelings about the return of the scrolling ticker at CNN in this message I posted at TVNewser:

    “I wish the scrolling ticker had stayed gone; it was always an unnecessary distraction during CNN’s programming. Since I had been watching CNN’s programming less often recently (normally during “Reliable Sources” and some live events) and normally while working at my computer, the scrolling ticker should be less of a problem for my eyes in the foreseeable future. I hope Jeffrey Zucker realizes there are many persons such as myself who share the same feelings about the scrolling ticker and listen to CNN’s programming the same way”
