Note: WNBC here, stood for "New Britain, Connecticut", not "National Broadcasting Company", like its later callsign in New York.
In May 1960, WNBC-TV became WHNB, as the WNBC callsign was transferred to the New York City NBC station.
WHNB-TV became the current WVIT upon its transfer of ownership to the original Viacom on June 12, 1978.
A rare example of a TV station identifying its channel number as a word.
Viacom purchased Paramount Pictures in 1994, and merged its five-station group into the Paramount Stations Group. The WVIT wordmark from the previous logo was retained.
In 1996, the Paramount Stations Group sold WVIT back to NBC, making it an O&O for the second time.
