Also in 1991, a popular morning program was introduced called Hits News & Weather that ran from 7 AM to 9 AM ET.
A box displaying the minutes past the hour was shown below the logo during the period.
The channel was first launched on January 1, 1985 in the old space of Turner Broadcasting System's short-lived Cable Music Channel.
It was originally created by Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment, at the time a division of Warner Communications and the original owner of MTV (MTV and VH1 are now both owned by Viacom Media Networks).
It played more jazz and R&B artists than MTV and had a higher rotation of urban-contemporary performers.
Its early on-camera personalities were New York radio veterans Don Imus (then of WNBC), Frankie Crocker (then program director and DJ for WBLS), Scott Shannon (of Z100), Jon Bauman ("Bowzer" from Sha Na Na), Bobby Rivers, and Rita Coolidge.
Typical of VH1's very early programming was New Visions, a series which featured videos and in-studio performances by smooth jazz and classical and new-age bands and performers, including Spyro Gyra, Andy Narell, Mark Isham, Philip Glass, and Yanni.
At first many different musicians guest-hosted the program, but eventually musician/songwriter Ben Sidran became the permanent host.
Once VH1 established itself a few years later, they catered to Top 40, adult contemporary, classic rock, and 1980s mainstream pop.
For a time, even country music videos aired in a one-hour block during the afternoons.
They started out using MTV's famous Kabel typeface font for their music video credit tags.
It was later replaced in 1991 by a larger font, with the year the video was made added to the lower column that identified the label on which the album was released.
One popular weekend program was called Video Rewind, in which blocks of 1980s videos from one particular year would play for an hour.
