1983–1989

WCIX was acquired by Taft Broadcasting in early 1983. The station joined as one of the original charter Fox affiliates three years later on October 9, 1986, making it one of a handful of VHF-channel independent stations to become charter affiliates. Taft later sold WCIX along with its independent and Fox-affiliated stations to the TVX Broadcast Group in February 1987. They would later sell the station to CBS in 1988, taking that affiliation away from WTVJ, and sending the Fox affiliation to soon-to-be-former NBC affiliate WSVN on January 1, 1989.

On September 10, 1995 at 1:00 am, WCIX swapped its over-the-air channel position with NBC station WTVJ (who formerly operated that station as a CBS affiliate before 1989), with WCIX moving to channel 4 (adopting the WFOR-TV callsign in the process) and WTVJ moving to channel 6.
