This logo resembles KTLA in Los Angeles, however then-sister station WNEW-TV continued to use the previous logo until 1986. It also adopted the slogan "Washington, D.C.'s 1st Television Station" before its owner Metromedia sold all of its independent stations (including WTTG) to News Corporation in May 1985, who just announced its intentions to form the then-new Fox Broadcasting Company on May 7, 1986, with KTTV, KDAF, KRIV, WFLD, and WNYW forming what would become Fox Television Stations. The graphics in this era were based on an effects library called the "Station Image Package" from Cascom International and Cranston/Csuri Productions; versions of it made for other stations can be seen in C/CP's 1983 showreel.
