Warner Communications Inc. was founded on February 10, 1972 when Kinney National Services, Inc. (on February 2, 1971, it re-called as Kinney Services, Inc.) was split up due to a financial scandal over its parking operations and changed its name to reflect its ownership of Warner Bros. Although Warner Bros. discontinued use of this logo in 1984, Warner Communications continued its use until its merger with Time.

This logo was created by Saul Bass. It is a stylized W and was eventually adopted by many of its subsidiaries.

Warner Communications created a joint venture with American Express (Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment Company), which owned Nickelodeon, VH1, MTV and The Movie Channel, all of which are now subsidiaries of Paramount Global.

On March 4, 1989, Warner Communications and Time Inc. announced an agreement to merge and on January 10, 1990, Time Warner was formed from the merger between the two companies. This company was known as AOL Time Warner from January 11, 2001 to October 15, 2003 and WarnerMedia from June 14, 2018 to April 8, 2022 due to the AOL merger and AT&T acquisition, respectively.
