KABC-TV originally signed on the air on September 16, 1949, as KECA-TV and has been owned-and-operated by ABC since its inception. The station's call sign was named after Los Angeles broadcasting pioneer Earle C. Anthony, whose initials were also present on channel 7's then-sister radio station, KECA (790 AM, now KABC).

Circle 7 1962.svg

In 1962, ABC commissioned designer G. Dean Smith to create a proprietary logo for its owned-and-operated stations, known as the "Circle 7". This logo has since expanded into use by many ABC stations not owned by the network. It predates Paul Rand's ABC logo by 4 months. This can be still seen as a patch on the station's news anchors, albeit in gold.
