Tribune Broadcasting purchased KCPQ from Kelly Broadcasting as part of its dissolution and exit from the television business in August. The deal was structured as a three-way transaction, in which Kelly sold the station to the Meredith Corporation, which then swapped it to Tribune in exchange for its Atlanta station WGNX (now WGCL-TV). Following the purchase of channel 13, Tribune merged KCPQ's operations with those of KTWB-TV (channel 22, now KZJO), which Tribune had acquired earlier in 1998. The two stations became co-owned in 1999, after the FCC began to allow same-market duopolies. Around the time of the Tribune's purchase, KCPQ moved its headquarters from Tacoma to Lake Union in Seattle; despite the move, the station is still licensed to Tacoma to this day.
