“Early Show” 2006 – 2008 Open

Since 2002 an ensemble of four anchored the Early Show to give the show a less formal feel than other morning news shows. By the time this theme started to be used, that concept was phased out, eventually returning to a more traditional format. This is the theme that James Horner composed for the Early Show. It was recorded in New York, two weeks after the original session in Los Angeles during the summer of 2006. In comparison to his work for the Evening News, he wanted the theme for the Early Show to be more energetic, gentler and intimate. It debuted about two months after Horner’s Evening News theme went on the air. CBS decided to use this theme as the headline cue and used a shortened version of the Evening News close as its open.
