These logos were shared with sister stations WNBC in New York City and WRC-TV in Washington, D.C.
The station modified its callsign to KNBC-TV in August 1986, shortly after NBC's parent RCA was purchased by General Electric. This version of the 1985 logo was only in use for a short period of time, with NBC changing its logo in May 1986.
This was also shared with then-fellow affiliate WCIV (now WGWG) in Charleston, South Carolina from during the same time until 1991.
The "4" is also shared with sister stations WNBC in New York City, WRC-TV in Washington, D.C., and until 1995, KCNC-TV in Denver, and WTVJ in Miami–Fort Lauderdale. The "-TV" suffix was once again and finally omitted on September 6, 1995.
The "4" became more squat.
Its "4" peacock combination is slightly similar to fellow affiliate WOAI-TV in San Antonio, TX.
