In 1994, station owner New World Communications announced a group deal with Fox that saw all of their stations switch to the fledgling network, and the station took over Fox from former affiliate WKBD-TV (channel 50). CBS initially targeted ABC affiliate WXYZ-TV (channel 7), but its owner The E.W. Scripps Company signed an agreement with ABC that renewed its affiliation contract with WXYZ-TV. CBS would later purchase lower-rated WGPR-TV (UHF channel 62) in September 1994.

This logo branding, currently in use by most of the Fox O&Os, is based on the Fox News logo; with their website names ("myfox(city name).com") based off the domain for the social network Myspace, which former Fox parent News Corporation briefly owned.
