Since the first telecast a letter W composed of two V letters serves as the program's official logo.


Wiadomości replaced the infamous Dziennik Telewizyjny (English: Television Journal), a newscast that was a symbol of communist propaganda in the Polish People's Republic during the Cold War. The first edition of Wiadomości aired on 18 November 1989 and was hosted by journalist Wojciech Reszczyński. Reszczyński greeted the audiences with a message: "Good evening, I hope that this program will gain your approbation in the upcoming days. The information contained in this program will be either good or bad, but always true and we count on help and cooperation."[2]
