This article or section lacks a former logo at the moment. You can help Logopedia by uploading it here.
This "8" logo was used from 1975 to 1981. This logo was captured from a 1980 WFLA promo that had the 1979-1986 NBC logo next to the 8. WFLA would not attach the peacock to its logo again until 1995.
This "gapped" 8 logo would only last a year as WFLA was in the ratings basement during this logo's era.
This logo debuted in the Fall of 1982 with an image campaign called "The Spirit of Tampa Bay".
In January 1983, WFLA-TV changed its call letters to WXFL-TV as their owner Media General sold its sister radio stations WFLA-FM and WFLA-AM. The radio stations got to keep their call letters and Channel 8 was forced to change theirs.
WFLA-TV (second era)
The rule on TV/Radio call letters not belonging to different owners was ratified and on January 1, 1989, Channel 8 regained the WFLA-TV call letters.
