As an overnight newscast, the tone of World News Now can be more relaxed, casual and lighthearted. This theme, composed by JOEDtracks, reflects that. It was actually not originally composed for ABC’s overnight newscast. It was composed in the early 90’s by Joe DeSanctis of JOEDTracks and was called Blueness. To make it fit as a news theme, they went back to the studio and added some elements, such as a big drum sound at the end and an orchestral sting. Once ABC liked the theme, JOEDTracks composed additional music for the show.
