MSNBC goes big on debate night promotion

After starting to promote its coverage of the first democratic debate yesterday, MSNBC went bigger Wednesday, June 26, 2019 — the day before the first night of the two night affair.

During many commercial breaks, MSNBC is running the normal ads inside of a branded inset frame.

Below the commercials is a bold red banner saying “Special coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET” (the actual debate starts at 9 p.m.) — as well as the live feed of the debate stage with a countdown above.

The upper right corner also includes the MSNBC “Democratic Debate” logo.

Other elements include the faded structural elements that have appeared in other debate and 2020 election related graphics. 

During its programming, a countdown box continues to appear frequently.

In addition, NBC and MSNBC are continuing to run promos for the event during commercial breaks:


Telemundo, which is owned by NBCUniversal, is also running Spanish language promos.
