Local TV station logos

Recommended Posts

I've always been interested by local TV station logos and whether or not they choose to represent any given area through their imagery or not. Post your local TV station logos here.

 

For Wilmington, NC:

 

ABC and CBS affiliate:

The last one is a 'The CW' station.

 

They're ranked by local popularity, also.

 

EDIT: Forgot Rocky Mountain PBS. They've got my favorite of the bunch.

WHYY did they name it that?

 

I think this logo is the best of Philly's bunch, though.

Love this logo, genius, especially for being 45 years old. Basically all we watch.

We just recently got this as a second NBC station, and it's painfully confusing figuring out what's on which.

Here's some of the stations I follow both state and local, starting with Columbus stations.

 

NBC Affiliate:

ABC affiliate:

CBS Affiliate:

(always thought this was an "a" when I was little, but that was before the refresh). 

 

FOX Affilaite, which is actually owned by the ABC affiliate, so a lot of the anchors on 6 are also on 28.

My local NBC affiliate, WHIZ in Zanesville, OH:

2ffe5a4e171a80c815a775143bdef184.jpg

They're slogan used to be "Always Dry, Never Wet."... Seriously. 

 

And here's the organization I work for that broadcasts on local cable and on YouTube, Orbit Media at Muskingum University.

Channel 7 (WHDH) is completely independent now...NBC wanted to buy them, the owners said no, and so the Peacock stripped the affiliation from them came contract time, and had cobble together a low-power signal and a subchannel on two other UHFs to give the new NBC Boston a full-market presence.

 

By the way, WCVB does have a really good logo (don't know what they were doing with the Fox/Boston 25 logo, though).  In fact, I think many of the Hearst stations (which WCVB is one of) have some good logos...

Hearst also has almost a couple dozen TV stations, but these always stood out to me among their station logos.

 

1. WISN (Milwaukee): They have the oldest-continuous logo of the four right above, dating back to the mid-70s.  To me, maybe one of the most recognizable local TV station logos around to this day.

2. WBAL (Baltimore): This one have been around since the late 80s, dating back to the period they were a CBS affiliate (1981-95).

3. KMBC (Kansas City): They've had this logo since the early 80s, just before Hearst bought them.  This particular "Circle 9" logo is also used on Syracuse's ABC station, WSYR.

4. WTAE (Pittsburgh): The "4" had been around in some form since the mid-70s, and the "Circle 4" was created in its present form in 1989 (originally gold, changed to blue in the mid-90s)

The New York affiliates have already been posted, but here's the logos from the affiliates in my native state of Connecticut:

 

Ch. 3, WFSB (CBS, Hartford):

 

WFSB_Channel_3_(logo).png

One of the best local TV station logos you'll find, IMO.

 

 

Ch. 8, WTNH (ABC, New Haven):

 

News_8_wtnh.png

 

which is even more generic than their old logo that I remember from when I lived in CT:

 

175?cb=20110424074546

 

 

Ch. 30, WVIT (NBC, New Britain):

 

WVIT_2009_Logo.png

 

They dropped their old "NBC 30" branding about a decade ago, likely in light of the fact that most cable companies carry it on a different channel than 30:

 

WVIT30prehd.png

 

 

Ch. 61, WTIC (Fox, Hartford):

 

WTIC61-102015.png

 

This station kept switching between branding itself as "Fox CT" and "Fox 61," mostly for the same reason as NBC 30. Apparently viewers had nostalgia for the old Fox 61 branding, so they brought it back a couple years ago.

 

 

Ch. 20, WCCT (CW, Hartford):

 

WCCT_logo_2012.jpg

 

 

Ch. 9, WCTX (MyTV, New Haven):

 

464px-WCTX-TV_Logo.svg.png

 

No different from any other MyTV logo.

 

CPTV (PBS, Various channels throughout CT):
