WGNO was purchased by Glendive Media in 1978, who would in turn sell the station to Tribune Broadcasting in 1983. WGNO reportedly turned down an offer by Fox to become a charter affiliate of the network, prior to its October 9, 1986 launch; Fox programming instead went to WNOL, which its then-owners TVX Broadcast Group used as leverage to get Fox to sign a deal to affiliate with the majority of the company's independent stations.

In October 2020, WGNO refreshed its logo for the first time in a decade after Nexstar Media Group's acquisition of Tribune Broadcasting, also coinciding with the debut of its new graphics package and the "Guardian" music package from Stephen Arnold Music, who previously composed a unique jazz-themed package for WGNO's newscasts.
