Thanks to the online archives of the Daytona Beach Morning Journal, we’ve discovered another Orlando TV station logo from long ago. Here’s one for then-Daytona Beach based WESH-2. This logo from 1965 touts the station as “Florida’s Channel 2” and incorporates the NBC “snake” logo. Based on our research, the station used this logo for about three years, until going to a modified version in 1968. See our graphic illustrating the WESH logos though the years.
