In October 15, 1969, KBS started operating a TV network with two stations: Channel 9 in Manila and Channel 12 in Baguio. KBS launched this logo in conjunction with the start of KBS' TV operations. The logo also had a second version in which the logo was joined by the text "Accucolor" (filled with multiple colors) for its first TV slogan, "Accucolor 9" (used to promote KBS as the first TV network in the Philippines to broadcast in full color). The logo consisted of the KBS logo in a number 9 shape with straight lines, boxed in a rectangle.

In 1975, KBS was relaunched as RPN, or the Radio Philippines Network. Its first logo is an RGB-colored eye with the text "RPN" in lowercase placed on the center of the eye. The number 9 shape used from 1969 was discontinued, but was returned the following year. On the blue oval is a looking eye.

In 1980, RPN unveiled a new logo which was a half-circle resembling an antenna, forming the letters RPN, and RGB beams. The number 9 shape was again retained and was used until 1982.

This logo also somewhat resembles the iconic logo used by ABS-CBN.



In 1982, RPN overhauled its logo again. This time, the logo was a red box with the name RPN in Peignot font inside it (the logo resembles a satellite antenna; this was used in conjunction with the start of RPN's broadcast via Domestic Satellite (DOMSAT) technology). The logo was joined by RPN's "The Leader" slogan (to promote RPN as the number one TV network during that time), and a completely overhauled number 9 shape using "nautilus shell". One alternative variant feature only the box (seen in The American Music Awards). The box was used again in 1995. See below.

When RPN 9 have the logo (the alternate version without the channel number and slogan), was used on most RPN radio stations. The logo continue to use even to this day.

In 1994, New Vision 9 reverted back to RPN 9. The network, did not use the 1982 logo, however, and used a new logo, which consisted of a globe with a red-blue gradient-colored ring and the words "RPN" and "THE NETWORK", representing RPN's slogan during that time: "RPN: The Network". The logo was discontinued in 1995 in favor of returning the 1982 box logo.




After 13 years, in 1995, the 1982 logo finally returned as the logo of the network (this time, without the number 9 (the 1982 logo without the 9 and so as the slogan was shown at one point), and a different slogan entitled "Your Friendly Network"). It is currently RPN's longest-lived logo.
