On September 1, 1980, WXIA-TV became an NBC affiliate after WSB-TV decided to affiliate with ABC due to the network's higher ratings at the time. The station also got a new tagline called Atlanta's Proud New Tradition reflecting the network's "Proud as a Peacock" campaign at the time.

Soon after this logo was first introduced, WXIA-TV dropped the "11 Alive" branding on August 1994. However, an outcry by Atlanta residents over the removal of the popular branding forced Gannett (which later spun off into Tegna in 2015) to restore the branding a month later. It was officially restored again in 1996.
