On July 12, 1994, when CBS and the Westinghouse Broadcasting Company agreed to a long-term affiliation deal that would result in three of its stations switch to the network; they initially intended on selling WCAU in Philadelphia, but later discovered they would have to pay taxes on the profit of the transaction. To solve this problem, in November 1994, NBC decided to swap ownership of KCNC-TV in Denver and channel 2 (which NBC had acquired the month before), along with the VHF channel 4 allocation and transmitter in Miami, to CBS in exchange for WCAU and the VHF channel 6 allocation and transmitter in Miami, which for legal purposes made the deal an even trade. While the network affiliations were swapped between those two stations on September 10, 1995, Saturday Night Live remained on KUTV until January 1996 as KSL-TV refused to air it.
