In 1976, following original owner Gaylord Broadcasting (a subsidiary of the Oklahoma Publishing Company, formerly known as the WKY Television System) sold the station to the Evening News Association, WKY-TV changed its callsign to KTVY due to FCC rules. The same '4' from the final years as WKY-TV was kept.

In April 1990, KTVY changed its callsign to the current KFOR-TV; it branded itself as "4 Strong" for entertainment purposes, and as NewsTeam 4 for its newscasts, though the general and news brandings changed to NewsChannel 4 in August 1992, near the end of the "4 Strong" era. This '4' logo, despite a few color changes along the way, has remained the only logo the station has used since it became KFOR-TV.

On August 21, 2017, KFOR-TV moved to a new studio facility next door to its original Britton Road studio (which it had occupied since 1952). Coinciding with the debut of a new set, graphics package and news theme, the station also renamed itself to Oklahoma's News 4, dropping the Channel part of the name after 23 years.
