Alternate logo with the station name inside a stylized "13"
Originally signed on the air on October 4, 1973 as WDTB-TV, a primary NBC affiliate on VHF channel 13 and was owned by Panhandle Broadcasting Corporation (run by attorney Denver T. Brannen, from where the original call letters were derived from).
On February 28, 1977, WDTB was sold to Octagon Broadcasting, an Atlanta-based ouufit. Upon the change, Octagon changed the station's call sign to the current WMBB (which stands for "The World's Most Beautiful Beaches").
The 1976 design was revived during this era.
The bird was added back in November 1979.

WJHG and WMBB swapped affiliations on January 4, 1982, with WMBB joining ABC. The bird from the 1977 logo was kept, but a new 13 logo was introduced with the switch. Tyler, Texas-based Buford Television purchased channel 13 on December 5, 1986.
News intro slide from (1995)
After being purchased by Spartanburg, South Carolina-based Spartan Radiocasting (later Spartan Communications) on April 12, 1990, channel 13 began using this logo on August 6 of that year, when they began broadcasting from a new 1,500-foot (457 m) state-of-the-art antenna and transmitter tower now in Youngstown.
This logo began to be used in March 1997. This was the rebrand which introduced the "News 13" branding.
This logo could be seen on bumpers as late as the end of 2002.
This logo is similar to one used by then-sister station WDEF-TV from 1997 to 2005. Richmond, Virginia-based Media General, which owns NBC affiliate WFLA-TV (VHF channel 8) in Tampa, purchased Spartan Communications for $605 million in March 2000.
