ABC changing their logo; New graphics coming for ABC owned stations


Recommended Posts

Not sure if we're tracking affiliate rollout of the new ABC logo here or not, but WDAY/Fargo has been using it on air for the last few days now. Everything on air and on social media is the same with the new ABC logo proportion-wise as it was before.

I do like the new ABC logo, but not the size of it.  Rather the ABC size be same size as the 7 logo and be right beside it. Like CBS 2 for example.  By 2033, we should have this logo. 😉  

👏🏼 I 👏🏼  just 👏🏼  want 👏🏼  a 👏🏼 circle 👏🏼 7 👏🏼 pin! 👏🏼 🤣

If WEWS doesn't use the new ABC logo soon, they will be the laughing stock.

Like many people, this new logo rubs the wrong way with me.

 

It reminds me a lot of the "ABC News" logo from the 2016-era fake news site abcnews.com.co

The proportions are all wrong.  Demanding the “dot” is 75% of the circle 7 basically has the two elements fighting for dominance. Maybe I’ll get used to it...but it’s awkward.

Same issue the way KMGH is going!

I wonder when WPVI TV 6abc will roll out the new abc logo to match its 54 year old egg shaped 6 logo. That logo has been in place since 1967 although it rolled out very slowly until becoming the full time logo when action news premiered in 1970.

 

I would think a complete overhaul of the logo would be a big mistake for channel 6 viewers resist change , and they went through this with the short lived action news theme. in 1996.

Technically, that "egg" logo has only been used for about 10 years - the "6" is the iconic part, and they can probably incorporate that into the new logo without viewers getting mad. They could go back to their old 6 in a blue box, lol.

I just saw WPVI's logo with the new ABC logo during a station ad on COVID awareness. It looks...alright. But the proportion of the new ABC logo looks a bit overwhelming at first. We'll see if it looks better when it officially debuts.

Of course the 6 is iconic its been around since 1967 before action news was thought of. At first I believe it was first used to denote a color program.

It ain't good but it could be much worse.

 

Also can't help but wonder if that's an element from the O&O package or not although it could pass for something from their in-house look as well.

God, ABC is missing out on a lot of my money by not having a WLS store. The ABC7 flashdrive and Eyewitness News drawstring bag that I got for free doesn't make them much money. 😂

The 6 logo looks the same as it did when it debuted in September 1967 to denote color presentations.

And that was during the WFIL days before the call letter change!

WXYZ in Detroit is now beginning to use the new ABC logo.5182EBEF-F739-4CB4-A03A-F1916FA64B08.thumb.jpeg.695b04340fdf57aa5c382b29605e79d1.jpeg6DDA0826-88B0-4A41-A8DF-F250FF9100BB.thumb.jpeg.da9bbb34e526f95ce325dbecf5d6be98.jpeg

Probably better than their former O&O brethren! (Since ‘XYZ was an O&O before they got Scripp’ed…)

Yes about  a little less  than 4 years before WFIL TV became WPVI TV . The 1963 Triangle logo was still used by channel 6 even after the current logo debuted. By April 1970 when action news debuted the 1967 logo started to be used full time and the 1963 logo was retired.

I might've already posted this somewhere, but it's interesting that ABC previewed this new logo 5 years ago, in a long promo for the 2016 Fall line-up. I don't have the video handy, but I took screencaps back then, not knowing it would be official this many years later.
