In 1981, BBC-2 rebranded to City2 Television as part of its plan to make the network more competitive in terms of programming. The City2 logo shows the 'city2' text in low compressed ITC Avant Garde Bold with its same straight strokes outside.

City2 ended operations on March 20, 1986 at the height of the People Power Revolution along with RPN and IBC (temporarily), after reformist soldiers disabled the transmitter that was broadcasting then-president Marcos' inauguration from the Malacañang Palace. Upon Corazon Aquino's subsequent accession to the presidency, BBC, RPN and IBC (collectively known as "Broadcast City") were sequestered and placed under the management of a Board of Administrators tasked to operate and manage its business and affairs subject to the control and supervision of Presidential Commission on Good Government. DWWX-TV was relaunched as ABS-CBN on September 14 the same year, as well the Cebu and Bacolod affiliate stations.
