Most likely a placeholder logo until the final one is designed.  That slogan... hmmmm... "stuff"?  Really a poor choice of wording.

 

Put the blame on John Huston...it's a quote from The Maltese Falcon.

 

As for this first logo...very deep Powerpoint/WordArt vibes. They'll fix it later in post.

Hopefully you'll just trust me, because I don't have the tweet handy, but a reputable source in CNN's design department confirmed that this is a placeholder. They just needed a wordmark for a presenta

I'm hoping for Disco Brothers. Maybe they can get the BeeGees involved somehow.

I understood the Discovery/Scripps Networks Interactive merger, because there was strong affinity between their families of networks.   In contrast, there's really no affinity between Warner

Why not just ditch "Discovery" altogether?  Take a note from all of the failed combinations of the past....

 

 

 

Zaslav's ego probably wouldn't allow it.

It's supposed to evoke the classic Warner Bros. shield...

 

It's almost certainly a placeholder.

Or just rename the merged company as either Warner Discovery or just plain Discovery for that matter?

Here's a variant probably no one remembers, or has ever seen before.

3027046-inline-8warner-bros-logo-1971-th

 

This was after Kinney National (a conglomerate, not the old shoe store) bought them after the Warner Bros.- Seven Arts era.  Corporate scandal ensued soon after and the round "W" from the 70s and 80s came to be.

 

Speaking of conglomerates, why don't they get back into the media business again? 

 

Fun fact, the Kinney Shoe store was bought by FW Woolworth, and they started Foot Locker in 1974. 

Flash forward to now, and Foot Locker (and their sister stores) are all that's left!

I've known of that logo for a while, thanks to the logo community. Pretty rare picture there, since WB has historically liked to replace their old logos. Summer of 42 played earlier today on TCM, and the modern logo replaced the Kinney shield at the beginning (the ending still had the in-credit version, though).

AT&T should've never have bought Warner Bros that was an epic fail everything that AT&T touches they ruin. And why does Jeff Zucker still have a job? The deal will be approved by the DOJ with rules I think DOJ is going to be tough on this deal just my opinion since the liberals don't like these types of mergers.

I remember that logo. I first saw it when I first watched Dirty Harry on AMC some years back. I, wondering where the more-recognizable shield or round Big W logos were at the time, thought it looked creepy.
