ABC (abbreviated from American Broadcasting Company) is an American television network owned by The Walt Disney Company through its Walt Disney Television division. The fifth-oldest major broadcasting network in the world and the youngest of the Big Three television networks, ABC is nicknamed The Alphabet Network, as its initialism also represents the first three letters of the English alphabet (A, B, C), in order.

It was founded on January 1, 1927, as a radio service named NBC Blue Network and was s

In time for the new television season in 2007, ABC rolled out a new identity package with a new tagline and a new interpretation of their logo. The new slogan, "Start here" (used until 2010), was presented at the upfronts in May. The slogan aimed to position ABC as a multi-platform brand, which can be watched on television, as well as on a computer or a mobile device.

In the new graphics package, the ABC logo would always appear in 3D as a shiny black disc. There were also multimedia icons developed were the ABC lettering was replaced symbols for mobile phones, computers, television screens, and portable media players. The new design created by Troika Design Group was used from September 22, 2007, until May 29, 2013. Despite this, it still remains in use by plenty of ABC affiliates' logos.

This logo was revealed on May 18, 2021 in promos of new series in ABC's fall 2021 lineup. It uses slightly-bold and smaller letters, a lowered ascender on the "b", similar to the 1988 logo, and a smaller gap in the "c", the typeface itself re-modified to be circular as the "c". An outlined version will be used alongside this, primarily as an on-screen bug. This logo was formally implemented on-air and on social media on August 9, 2021, and was adopted on the website a few days later. The previous logo is still used by local affiliates, during ESPN on ABC broadcasts, and the app.
