Satellite News Channel
EBC News Channel
In 1983, Group W sold its stake in SNC to EBC, resulting in the network itself owning channel as a whole via its EBC News division. The channel was rebranded to EBC News Channel in October 1983 to reflect its new ownership. Coincidentally, EBC News Channel began to use the same graphics as those used by the EBC News division's newscasts, including the spinning 3D outlined blue globe. Group W (then renamed CBS Corporation after its merger with CBS) would return to own a cable news channel in 1997 with the launch of CBSN.
