On Monday, October 18, 1954, WPTZ became WRCV-TV and owned by NBC until Friday, June 18, 1965, when the Westinghouse Broadcasting Company brought the current KYW-TV callsign from Cleveland to Philadelphia.

KYW-TV 3 (1965-2003).svg

Westinghouse Broadcasting & Cable and Group W Productions used a proprietary typeface called "Westinghouse" (also known as "Anklepants", due to a similar but identical font) for the station logo throughout their own entire ownership of the station as shown here. This had come after Westinghouse and NBC had switched stations (with the KYW calls and license transferring to what is now WKYC in Cleveland, and the WRCV-TV calls have changed into the current KYW-TV) only for the Federal Communications Commission to cancel the trade due to allegations of coercion on part of NBC and its allowance to have the KYW-TV callsigns goes to Philadelphia, PA on Saturday, June 19, 1965.

On September 10, 1995 at 1:00 AM, KYW-TV and WCAU swapped their affiliations between NBC and CBS (becoming the very last Group W station which switching to that network), as a result of a deal with Westinghouse that renewed its existing CBS affiliates in San Francisco and Pittsburgh. (On the date of KYW's switch, WJZ-TV also assumed affiliation with CBS, in a transaction that saw its ABC affiliation transfer to WMAR-TV.) KYW also debuted a new tagline that same year called Keep your eye on KYW 3. Westinghouse later acquired CBS altogether and making it KYW-TV as a network O&O and co-flagship station.
