In May 1985, Metromedia sold all of its independent stations (including KRLD) to News Corporation, who announced its intentions to launch the then-new Fox on May 7, 1986, with KTTV, KRIV, WFLD, WNYW, and WTTG forming what would become Fox Television Stations. As a result, the callsign was changed to KDAF, which stood for Dallas And Fort Worth.

On July 2, 1995, CBS affiliate KDFW assumed the Fox affiliation for the Dallas-Fort Worth market as a result of the network's long-term affiliation agreement with New World Communications (KTVT took over the CBS affiliation). Concurrently, in order to move Fox programming to the higher-rated KDFW, Fox Television Stations opted to sell KDAF to Renaissance Broadcasting in a trade deal for KDVR in Denver and its Fort Collins, Colorado satellite station KFCT.

On the date of the switch, KDAF became a WB affiliate, taking over the affiliation from KXTX-TV, which had been carrying the network since The WB's January 1995 inception under a temporary arrangement.
