CNN heavily promoting ‘back to back’ town halls
CNN has been steadily promoting its town hall “marathon” Monday, April 22, 2019 with a countdown, timeline-style banner running below its lower thirds which also run during commercials along with a two-box layout — plus traditional promos.

The banner alternate between a large CNN presidential halls logotype along with a day of the week or “tonight” designator.
The network is also airing promos in the same hard-hitting style it has used before — complete with an over-excited announcer using each candidate’s last name and mentioning they will face off “on the same stage” and “back to back” — as if the whole event is a wrestling match.
