HLN, formerly known as CNN Headline News and CNN2 is a cable television news channel based in the United States.
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
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. Its longest-serving anchor is Chuck Roberts, who has been there since its launch.
CNN Headline News presents a small variety of programming, providing rolling news coverage from the early morning to early primetime, followed by subject-oriented programming during primetime hours.
"Headlines", as it is known to employees, has always been somewhat of a stepchild at CNN: the unvarying rigidity of the news cycle was contrasted with the unpredictable, live nature of the parent network.
At other times of the day, Headline News still features 30-minute news programs. Every half-hour viewers get the latest updates on top stories (headline news).
The original Headline News format, which lasted until 2001, allowed the viewer to tune in at any time of the day and, in just 30 minutes, receive the most popular national and international stories, and feature reports.
In the early 2000s, CNN Headline News became famous for its distinct "screen," 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. This new screen layout premiered on Headline News on August 6, 2001.
