WFOR-TV originally signed on air on September 20, 1967, as WCIX, an independent station on channel 6.
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.
