On July 23, 2021, coinciding with the start of NBC's coverage of the Tokyo Olympics, WMC reverted to the Action News 5 branding (removing the call letters from the moniker after seven years). The "River 5" logo used since 1995 was retained (albeit placed on a square rounded on the bottom right corner, and the NBC logo placed next the mouth of the "5").

The logo omits the riverboat emblem that had been part of WMC-TV's logo imaging in some form since 1952 (with a minor exception from 1990–95, during which time the riverboat was relegated to on-air station IDs).
