CBS apparently really wants you to know it’s a “morning” network. Earlier this week the network announced that it’s renaming its third place CBS This Morning as simply CBS Mornings in an effort to align it better with the show’s venerable CBS News Sunday Morning.

CBS wants to pivot from telling people it’s the nation’s most-watched TV network to making them more aware of the programs it distributes across many different screens. “We want to help people understand our brand means more. It’s not just a linear television network,” says Michael Benson, CBS’s chief marketing officer.

Branding is a tool that has been used to promote and market everything from soft drinks and automobiles to political campaigns and sports. It has been an essential part of television news for decades, growing in importance as both technology and viewing options have exploded.
Most people who work in local TV marketing come to the position by happenstance. A new program at the NBC/Telemundo owned stations fast tracks candidates with the right stuff to step right into a position at their stations. “We really should be growing our own,” said Dianne Hannes, creative services director at WMAQ, NBC’s Chicago O&O.

Panelists spoke about the changing nature of their jobs, the increased likelihood of a passed-on project becoming a series — and perhaps even a hit — elsewhere and the uncertainty in knowing when to stick with a show or cut it loose, given the shift in measurement metrics.
