Evolution is a television news music package composed by Stephen Arnold Music. The package consists of 10 CDs containing 725 cuts

Evolution was composed for Sinclair Broadcast Group's stations as a replacement for Stephen Arnold's Sinclair News Music Package[citation needed], composed in 2003 due to the company's purported hike in usage rates for all of Arnold's syndicated news themes. Although, Sinclair was planning an update of its on-air graphics.

Ironically, Evolution was composed for Dallas-Fort Worth ABC affiliate WFAA-TV in 2004, which was based on the Spirit signature that station has used with all of its news themes since 1984.
