United Artists Broadcasting

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


United Artists owned and operated two television stations between 1968 and 1977. Legal IDs for the company would typically say "United Artists Broadcasting: an entertainment service of Transamerica Corporation.", along with the Transamerica T logo. UAB/Transamerica would exit the broadcasting business in 1977 following the sale of WUAB to the Gaylord Broadcasting Company.
