In 1962, ABC commissioned designer G. Dean Smith to create a proprietary logo for its owned-and-operated stations, known as the "Circle 7". This logo has since expanded into use by many ABC stations not owned by the network. It predates Paul Rand's ABC logo by 4 months.

When Capital Cities announced its merger with then-owner ABC in 1985; in order to comply with the FCC laws at the time, ABC opted to sell WXYZ-TV to The E.W. Scripps Company, who also planned on acquiring future sister station WFTS-TV in Tampa–St. Petersburg from Capital Cities.
