CBS 2 Moves Into The New Generation

CBS 2 News used a theme from Gari Communications' "CBS Enforcer New Generation" package for the first time this evening. The new theme debuted in promos for tonight's 6 p.m. and tomorrow's 5 p.m. newscasts and is an updated version of the current "CBS Enforcer" theme. It is not yet clear if CBS 2 will use this theme more widely soon.

Below is video of the two promos.

SouthernMedia's News Music Search Archive
has some more clips of "New Generation" here (from 0:17-0:36 and 3:49-4:01). And Gari's website has video from WBBM Chicago's use of "New Generation" (Skip Intro > Music and Sound > News Packages > O&O/Affiliate News Packages > CBS Enforcer (New Generation) ).

How do you like it?

EDIT: The theme was also in a promo for CBS 2's weather team during this winter, which debuted today after the first snowflakes fell in Manhattan:

I am glad to see that John Bolaris is still appearing in promos, though I doubt that this is a sign that he will last much longer...
