MSNBC moves to a simpler graphic look

MSNBC rolled out an updated graphics package this week.

Similar to the 2014 changes by CNN, the updates include an updated header bar and lower third. The new L3 has a singular focus, and removes the previous branding box.

The new lower-third includes large upper case text that spans nearly the width of the screen. The banner is typically one line, but can change to two lines as needed.

The former branding box sometimes reappears, taking up the entire width.

The header bar, which includes the show logo and MSNBC logo, was also widened to match the width of the new L3.
