CW NOW


CW Now is a news magazine series which premiered on The CW on September 23, 2007. It was a brand extension of the syndicated Telepictures news magazine Extra, and features anchors and correspondents from that show. The program was devoted to topics of interest to young adults (the audience targeted by the network), including entertainment and technology.
During the upfronts, Dawn Ostroff announced a new marketing strategy for this show using what she calls, "cwickies" (pronounced quickies), which is used in this program to replace the traditional network advertisements. Tanika Ray mentions that CW Now is a 30-minute commercial-free program.
The show was produced by Telepictures and Warner Horizon Television.
