The logo design, especially the font (called "Westinghouse" or "Anklepants" (due to a similar typeface) by some people), was originally introduced when then-owner Westinghouse Broadcasting (Group W) introduced its design language in 1963.

In 1995, CBS entered into an agreement with the Westinghouse Broadcasting Company, which owned WJZ-TV and four other stations. This resulted in WJZ-TV switching from ABC to CBS, sending that ABC affiliation to WMAR-TV channel 2, who lost its NBC affiliation back to WBAL-TV channel 11.

4 years since the switch to CBS, WJZ-TV modified and softened their Westinghouse typeface to replace the original logo. The old one was still kept as the secondary logo and is currently only seen in their headquarters.
