KOMO-TV originally signed on the air on December 10, 1953, as an NBC affiliate on VHF channel 4 and was founded and owned the Fisher family; it became an ABC affiliate on September 27, 1959, when it switched network affiliations with KING-TV (VHF channel 5).

For a brief period in 1978, the station's newscasts used this logo even as the next logo below was introduced.

"We're With You" ID #1 (1984–1985)
"We're With You" ID #2 (1984-1985)

This '4' logo was used in various forms for 22 years; the typeface used in the wordmark is a modified form of Futura Bold, with a modified, wider 'K'.
"Together" ID (1986–1987)
This italicized and bolder-text KOMO4SEATTLE logo was used concurrently with the 1978 '4' logo above in this period; additonally, the logo seen in the "Together" ID with a Futura Bold italic-oriented look with a '4' in a square on the above right side was used as a secondary logo during 1986-87; a forerunner to the below logo.

Logo as shown on the current station ID segment
Sort of a similar design to the 1971 logo; the 1978 "4" logo became enclosed in a rounded square.
The white outline of the square was removed, and the ABC logo placed in the upper left-hand side.
KOMO reintroduced the 1978 "4" logo, 2 years after current owner Sinclair Broadcast Group acquired longtime owner Fisher Communications in 2013. It is still being used in tandem with the next logo; continued to be used on its lower thirds.
The station gained a new typeface, and introduced a modified '4' logo; it is partially based on the design used by the NBC owned-and-operated stations that broadcast on channel 4.
