The Tony Awards has partnered with City National Bank to create special content from the Tony's red carpet and backstage.

Jenn Colella, who is scheduled to return to the cast of Broadway's Come From Away, will host a Tonys Wall of Inspiration on the red carpet. This year's nominees and presenters will be invited to discuss what they are looking forward to as live theatre continues its return, and to leave an inspiring message on a wall filled with 75 years of Tony Awards memories. The signed wall will be auctioned, with proceeds supporting the American Theatre Wing and the Broadway League Foundation.

Newsies original cast member Andrew Keenan-Bolger will be the first to speak to this year's Tony winners backstage, hosting the Tony Awards First Impressions Cam on The Tony Awards' YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram.

Following last year's two-part broadcast shared by CBS and Paramount+, the 2022 Tony Awards will include an hour of exclusive programming streaming on Paramount+ June 12 from 7 PM ET, followed by the three-hour awards ceremony airing live on CBS and streaming simultaneously on Paramount+ (for premium-level subscribers only) from 8 PM ET, making this year's ceremony the first in Tony Awards history to be available live nationwide. The broadcast will also be available to stream on demand on Paramount+ for all membership tiers following the live stream. Paramount+ is currently offering a free 1 month trial.  Oscar winner Ariana DeBose will host the awards ceremony, with the initial hour set to be hosted by POTUS' Julianne Hough and American Buffalo's Darren Criss.
