MSNBC was founded in 1996 by Tom Rogers.
Same as above, but the letter "N" in the logo was changed from red to black.
The logo was changed to a horizontal form in 2006.
This logo with the letters in lowercase form first appeared on MSNBC.com (now nbcnews.com) in April 2007, and launched on screen on June 27, 2009 as the station started broadcasting in high-definition.
The letters were changed back to uppercase form in 2015, albeit in a different font.
