Initially broadcast as CNN2 on January 1, 1982, the network would rename itself one year later to CNN Headline News. New Year See also New Year The Ancient Romans began their consular year on January 1st since 153 BC Year 1982 ( MCMLXXXII) was a Common year starting on Friday (link displays the 1982 Gregorian calendar) The use of "CNN" in the title of the network has been intermittent throughout the network's broadcast years.
The network's programming focused around the idea that a viewer could tune in at any time and, in just 30 minutes, receive the most popular national and international stories, in addition to feature reports. The format, known as the Headline News Wheel, featured "Dollars and Sense" personal finance reports at 15 and 45 minutes past each hour, Headline Sports at 20 and 50 minutes, lifestyle reports at 25 and 55 minutes past each hour, and general news during the top (:00) and bottom (:30) of the hour. Personal finance is the application of the principles of Finance to the monetary decisions of an individual or family unit Sport is an Activity that is governed by a set of rules or Customs and often engaged in competitively The term lifestyle was originally coined by Austrian psychologist Alfred Adler in 1929 Another regular feature was the "Hollywood Minute" which was often fitted in after the Headline Sports segment. In the network's early years, a two-minute recap of the hour's top stories, the CNN Headlines, would run after the sports segment.
In the late 1990s, Headline News pioneered using a digital video jukebox to recycle segments of one newscast seamlessly into another newscast. jukebox is a partially automated music-playing device usually a Coin -operated machine that can play specially selected songs from self-contained media The new technology led towards the network needing less staff due to the ability to use segments throughout an entire day (it replaced the former method of having anchors read the same stories repeatedly hour after hour, with the second 15 minutes of each half hour in the wheel being on videotape every third and fourth hour). During this period, the network laid off part of its staff, including such stalwart anchors as Lyn Vaughn, David Goodnow and Bob Losure, all of whom had been with Headline News for over 10 years. Lyn Vaughn is an American News anchor who is most notable for her stint on Headline News from 1984 to 1997. David Clay Goodnow was born in Vincennes Indiana. He is a 1957 graduate of Vincennes Lincoln High School. Bob Losure was a weekend anchor on CNN Headline News from 1986-1997
With the start of the new millennium, the network became noted for its distinct "screen" starting in August of 2001, in which the news anchor (or news footage) appears in a sort of visual "window" surrounded by constantly changing text, such as breaking news, sports scores, stock market reports, and weather updates.
Due to the growing competition from the Fox News Channel and MSNBC, Time Warner revamped CNN Headline News in 2003 towards a more flexible format, featuring live reports and two anchors hosting the network's rolling news coverage. MSNBC is a 24-hour cable television news channel based in the United States and available in Canada. Time Warner Inc ( is the world's largest media and entertainment conglomerate, headquartered in New York City.
By far, the network's drastic changes came in 2005 when the network dramatically scaled back the amount of on-screen information following much scrutiny and lampooning of the format, such as USA Today calling the screen a "jumbled mess. USA TODAY is a national American daily Newspaper published by the Gannett Company. " The new look would consist of a yellow bar, which featured sports scores and stock quotes, in addition to a basic news ticker. A news ticker (sometimes referred to as a "crawler" is a small screen space on News Television networks The network also began a shift away from their rolling news coverage throughout primetime to longer, personality-based programs, under the title Headline Prime in February of the same year.

Programming changes have also taken place, with the introduction of News To Me, a program featuring only user-generated content, in May, a daily broadcast of the previous evenings Larry King Live, in June, and a shift towards the network's rolling news coverage being handled by a single anchor, deviating from the network's traditional dual anchor format since 2003.
