I'm sure it is just coincidence. The original Anglia Television logo is similar to Anglia Railways, but the more recent (pre-ITV plc) logo was much removed.

That version of the Anglia TV logo reminds me of one of the various iterations of the WAGN logo!

It wasn’t a coincidence - the similarity was deliberate. It was done to subliminally place the TOC within the whole Anglia population as a recognisably local organisation.

Anglia were very strong on being an integral part of the local community. I really enjoyed my time there

From the logos so far posted I see no similarity.

There's a distinct similarity between the lettering on the first Anglia TV logo and the Anglia Railways logo.

As an interesting side note, the ITV studios in Norwich still have "Anglia Television" on the side.

Of course, there was also the West Anglia Great Northern logo, which does not seem to have been entirely unrelated to the blue and yellow triangles of the later Anglia Television logo ...

I’m finding this hilarious. Is it just me or is the only similarity the letter A?
