Millennium 3 is a television news music package composed by Shelly Palmer. It was composed in 1993 and features up to 150 cuts of opens, closes, stingers, bumpers and promo beds in a hard-hitting action news format. It has been used by at least 40 television stations nationwide, and was originally commissioned by KSTW in Tacoma-Seattle and KTVT in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Millennium 3 comes in three versions: Millennium 3, Millennium 3 with PNP Signature and Millennium 3.2. Millennium 3 with PNP Signature is basically the original Millennium 3 package but featuring the "I Love Chicago, Chicago, My Home" signature heard in the Palmer News Package to open and close each cut of music.

Millennium 3.2, on the other hand, features the original signature of Millennium 3, but in a remixed techno version which is completely different from the traditional format of most news packages.
