KTVW abruptly went off the air on December 12, 1974, per a bankruptcy judge's decision.

KCPQ

1976–1980

The remnants of the former KTVW were purchased by the Tacoma, Washington-based Clover Park School District, and channel 13 returned to the air as PBS member station KCPQ on January 4, 1976.

1980–1991

This logo was based off of then-Kelly Broadcasting sister station KCRA-TV's (Sacramento) logo. Kelly purchased KCPQ in early 1980; and went silent on February 28th of that year, and relaunched it as an independent station on November 4; it would align with the then-new Fox network on October 9, 1986.

This logo was introduced in the summer of 1991, and remained unchanged for a long time, with only minor changes along the way in its quarter-century of use.

Tribune Broadcasting purchased KCPQ from Kelly Broadcasting as part of its dissolution and exit from the television business in August. The deal was structured as a three-way transaction, in which Kelly sold the station to the Meredith Corporation, which then swapped it to Tribune in exchange for its Atlanta station WGNX (now WGCL-TV). Following the purchase of channel 13, Tribune merged KCPQ's operations with those of KTWB-TV (channel 22, now KZJO), which Tribune had acquired earlier in 1998. The two stations became co-owned in 1999, after the FCC began to allow same-market duopolies. Around the time of the Tribune's purchase, KCPQ moved its headquarters from Tacoma to Lake Union in Seattle; despite the move, the station is still licensed to Tacoma to this day.

Tribune was acquired by Nexstar Media Group on September 19, 2019. They later sold KCPQ and KZJO to the Fox Television Stations subsidiary of Fox Corporation in exchange for WITI in Milwaukee, WJZY and WMYT-TV in Charlotte on March 2, 2020.

July–August 2020

KCPQ 2020 - Vertical.svg

This logo was introduced after Fox Television Stations acquired KCPQ from Nexstar. The only minor change is the updated Fox wordmark used by the network.

The entire logo has been slightly modified for the first time since their ownership by Fox Television Stations in the early year, with the "Q" portion resembling the one originally used from 1980–1991. As of October 17, 2020, KCPQ is the only Fox owned-and-operated television station to have the network name in the general branding and only that, as the "Q13 News" branding remains separate from the general branding.
