This logo's design is similar to KTEH in San Jose, and KECH in Portland, Oregon, which all used the font called New Zelek. When Kaiser merged with Field Communications in 1977, they chose to sell KBSC to Oak Communications. ONTV was an early pay-over-air premium service, offered at night.
During this logo's run KVEA and its then-sister station KWHY-TV alongside the rest of the Telemundo network were purchased by NBC in 2002. This made KVEA and KWHY sister stations to NBC's West Coast flagship station, KNBC. This made the Southern California television market the first (and only) television market to hold a triopoly until 2011.
