The logo design, especially the font (called "Westinghouse" or "Anklepants" (due to a similar typeface) by some people), was originally introduced when then-owner Westinghouse Broadcasting (Group W) introduced its design language in 1963.

1991–2003

The "2" became italicized in 1991. Then-sister stations KPIX and WBZ-TV were the first two Westinghouse-owned stations to adopt the styling in 1985 and 1987 respectively.

Westinghouse merged with CBS in 1995, making KDKA the network's owned-and-operated station.

The color scheme of the logo changed, making it in line with CBS O&O stations which used a gray and gold color based on the KCBS-TV logo.
