ABC (abbreviated from is an American television network owned by American Broadcasting Company) The Walt Disney Company through its Walt Disney Television division. The fifth-oldest major broadcasting network in the world and the youngest of the Big Three television networks, ABC is nicknamed The Alphabet Network, as its initialism also represents the first three letters of the English alphabet (A, B, C), in order.
It was founded on January 1, 1927, as a radio service named
and was spun out from NBC on January 9, 1942. It subsequently renamed to the current name on June 15, 1945, and started a television service on 1948.
NBC Blue Network
In March 1953, the network introduced a new logo, with the letters "ABC" enclosed in a "federal mirror" surmounted by the bald eagle.
In 1956, just before the television network began its first color broadcasts, the ABC logo consisted of a tiny lowercase "abc" in the center of a large lowercase letter
a, a design known as the "ABC Circle A".
DESIGNER Paul Rand
TYPOGRAPHY Nordique Pro Bold
In the mid-1960s, graphic designer Paul Rand redesigned the ABC logo into its best-known (and current) form, with the lowercase letters "abc" enclosed in a single black circle. The new logo debuted on-air on October 19, 1962, but however, didn't appear until the spring of 1963. The logo's simplicity made it easier to redesign and duplicate, which conferred a benefit for ABC. A color version of this logo was also developed around 1963, and animated as a brief 10-second intro to be shown before the then-small handful of network programs broadcast in color. The "a" was rendered in red, the "b" in blue, and the "c" in green, with the same single black circle. A variant of this color logo, with the colored letters against a white circle, was also commonly used throughout the 1960s. This logo is currently being used on
DESIGNER Harry Marks Carl Rosendahl
TYPOGRAPHY Nordique Pro Bold
The original Paul Rand logo was slightly modified in 1988. This version of the design was presumably meant to make the logo clearer at smaller sizes (as evidenced by the thinner strokes on the letters and the short ascender on the "b"), but was also frequently used at larger ones. Some ABC affiliates, along with the
ABC Family cable channel continue to use the 1962 design in their logos. This logo was still used on the ABC Kids block on ABC until it was replaced with Litton's Weekend Adventure.
In time for the new television season in 2007, ABC rolled out a new identity package with a new tagline and a new interpretation of its logo. The new slogan, "Start here" (used until 2010), was presented at the upfronts in May. The slogan aimed to position ABC as a multi-platform brand, which can be watched on television, as well as on a computer or a mobile device.
In the new graphics package, the ABC logo would always appear in 3D as a shiny black disc. There were also multimedia icons developed were the ABC lettering was replaced symbols for mobile phones, computers, television screens, and portable media players. The new design created by
Troika Design Group was used from September 22, 2007, until May 29, 2013. Despite this, it still remains in use by plenty of ABC affiliates' logos.
TYPOGRAPHY Nordique Pro Bold
In 2013, ABC modified its 2007 logo. This logo first appeared on the
all access website, featured in trailers for 2013–2014 programs. The new logo first appeared on May 30. Designed by Loyalkaspar, it is inspired by Paul Rand's original 1962 design.

WFDF was originally in the Flint radio market before moving to Farmington Hills in the Detroit radio market in 2006. As a result of the station's move to Detroit, WFRO in the Toledo market as well as another station in Northern Michigan (also on 900) were taken off the air to allow WFDF to increase its broadcast power.
Disney/ABC never owned the station, but operated it under a Local Marketing Agreement. Birach Broadcasting has since taken complete, outright control of the station.
These stations are either silent or completely off the air at this time.
WGVX also simulcasts on 105.3 and 105.7.
