U-Phonix is a television news music package created by Stephen Arnold Music. Composed for CBS Owned-and-operated station KTVT in Dallas-Fort Worth in 2004, this theme has the similar signature as its predecessor Sinclair News Music Package, but a different melody with propulsive drums and live rhythms. In 2007, after the incident with SESAC that required stations to pay higher fees to SESAC (and not Stephen Arnold Music), the Sinclair Broadcast Group dropped the Sinclair News Music Package and commissioned Daily News by Frank Gari. As a result, 4 of the themes have been moved into U-Phonix. The entire package was not absorbed, and not all cuts (edits and mixouts) were included either. U-Phonix contains 14 primary themes and up to 630 cuts.
