On December 1, 1995, WHBQ-TV disaffiliated from ABC and converted into a Fox owned-and-operated station, after Fox Television Stations acquired the station from Communications Corporation of America the year prior (which in turn bought WHBQ from Adams Communications in the spring of 1994). Channel 13 swapped affiliations with former Fox affiliate WPTY-TV (channel 24) now WATN-TV.
