The Paramount is a television news music package composed by Frank Gari of Gari Communications. It was composed in 1997 and features up to 50 cuts of opens, closes, stingers, bumpers and promo beds in a bold and aggressive format that differs from other news packages. It has been used by seven television stations around the United States, three UPN sations and four Fox stations.

The package was originally intended for UPN's local stations (hence its name), but it has also been used on four Fox affiliates: WACH in Columbia, South Carolina, KOKI in Tulsa, WTVW in Evansville, Indiana, and KKFX-CA in Santa Barbara, California.
