CBN sold WXNE-TV to the Fox Television Stations subsidiary of News Corporation on December 31, 1986, which became the current WFXT on January 19, 1987 and the first station to be acquired separately from its acquisition of independent stations from Metromedia. They later placed the station in a trust company in 1989, after the FCC ruled that News Corporation cannot own a television station and a newspaper in the same market. They later sold the station to the Boston Celtics in 1990.
In early February 2017, the station removed the "Fox" reference from its newscast title, two years before removing the "Fox" reference in the station's general branding and restoring the Boston 25 brand full-time.
