Venevisión (Spanish pronunciation: beneβiˈsjon) and formerly known until 2007 as VENEVISION)) is a Venezuelan free-to-air television channel and one of Venezuela's largest television networks, owned by Gustavo Cisneros. The network has a presence in the USA as being one of their most popular markets to distribute their international channels.
Venevisión was founded on February 27, 1961 as a producer of Venezuela after replacing Televisión Independiente, S.A. However, in March 1961, Venevisión's television channel was introduced.
In 1966, the word "Corporación Venezolana de Televisión" was dropped from the logo. This is the only Venevisión logo to not use its "V" design until 2007.
In 1970, Venevisión introduced its now iconic "V and crest" logo, with the same as the 1961 logo, an initial letter over the laurels.
