Following the loss of its ABC affiliation, KMSP began referring to themselves as Receptive Channel 9; in on-air and in print advertisements, an antenna was added onto the "9" logo in most cases (sometimes added to the "circle 9" variant).

KMSP would resume its status as a network affiliate on October 9, 1986, when it became a charter outlet of the upstart Fox network. The station disaffiliated from the network in 1988, due to dissatisfaction with the network's low-rated programming and its effect on KMSP's primetime viewership; the Fox affiliation in the Twin Cities subsequently moved to KITN (now sister station WFTC).

Following another six-year tenure as an independent station, KMSP became a charter affiliate of UPN when that network launched on January 16, 1995, joining the network by way of the station's ownership under UPN co-parent Chris-Craft/United Television.

KMSP-TV once again became a Fox station on September 8, 2002, as part of an affiliation swap between the two stations following WFTC's 2001 acquisition by Fox Television Stations Group from Clear Channel Communications; They also purchased BHC Communications (which included KMSP) on July 31, 2001, but kept the UPN affiliation on KMSP until after the expiration of its affiliation agreement with that network on September 8, 2002, when the affiliation swap took effect. The station kept its 1999 '9' logo with the change of affiliation and ownership.
