Cable News Network (CNN) is distinguished for its 24 hr news reporting globally and continues to be one of the top-ranking English-language TV networks around the world starting in 1980.
They use a ton of typefaces but among all CNN sans is one that is mainly used which is centered on Helvetica and belongs to the logo category. A condensed addition known as CNN condensed which can be seen only on websites is also used by them.
In 1980 original logo was designed by Anthony Guy Bost. In the era, 1980-1984 simplistic black and white logo were used by CNN promoting iconic cabling through the middle.
In 1984 the only update that occurred to this logotype was that its color palette was updated to scarlet red and white thus making the logotype look more powerful and passionate.
Later in 2014, the shading of red in the logo became slightly darker (kind of burgundy) thus giving the logo a greater sense of professionalism for the broadcaster globally.
