1995 newspaper ad about WHBQ-TV's affiliation switch to FOX
On December 1, 1995, WHBQ-TV disaffiliated from ABC and converted into a Fox owned-and-operated station, after Fox Television Stations acquired the station from Communications Corporation of America the year prior (which in turn bought WHBQ from Adams Communications in the spring of 1994). Channel 13 swapped affiliations with former Fox affiliate WPTY-TV (channel 24) now WATN-TV.
Alternate print logo
This logo branding, currently in use by most of the Fox O&Os, is based on the Fox News logo. The "13" is similar to that of former sister station WTVT in Tampa–St. Petersburg.

WHBQ, alongside WFXT in Boston, MA, were traded by Fox Television Stations to Cox Media Group in 2014 in exchange for acquiring Cox's San Francisco duopoly of Fox affiliate KTVU (which has been the network's largest affiliate for several years) and independent station KICU-TV.
The current logo is a horizontal variant of the 2006 logo.
