This logo's "4" has been used by the station itself and WRC-TV ever since. The same "4" was used on sister stations WTVJ in Miami–Fort Lauderdale, NBC's West Coast flagship station KNBC in Los Angeles and former NBC-owned station KCNC-TV in Denver; the two stations ceased using it in 1995 (when WTVJ switched its channel position with WCIX (now known as WFOR-TV), 1998 and 2003, respectively.
