In 1994, station owner [[New World Communications]] announced a group deal with [[Fox]] that saw all of their stations switch to the fledgling network. As a result, this new logo was introduced as the station took over Fox from [[WKBD-TV]] and sent CBS to [[WWJ-TV|WGPR-TV]]. It is still used today, currently in tandem with the latest logo.
