The X Package is a television news music package composed by Frank Gari of Gari Communications. The package, along with its sister news theme, The X-2 Package, features up to 120 cuts of opens, closes, bumpers, stingers and promo beds in a bold action news format.

The X Package was commissioned in 1999 by Fox-owned and operated station (O&O) KTTV/11 in Los Angeles. It features the 20th Century Fox fanfare at the beginning of some of the cuts, including the main news open, and is only marketed to Fox's local stations. 13 stations have used the X Package at some point in time, and now only 16 stations, either Fox affiliates or non-Fox affiliates still uses the theme as of 2008. KTTV no longer uses the theme.

Gari's Good Day package was originally part of the X Package; it is currently marketed as a separate package.

The X Package is divided into two themes, one with the Fox-like drumroll, and one without.
