In 2011, WJZY brought back its The CW 46 branding and adopted the "46" that would be used to this day, then the logo was ended on May 8, 2013 before the switch.



On May 9, 2013, Fox Television Stations, the Fox network's owned-and-operated television station group, took control of WJZY and WMYT-TV from Capitol Broadcasting Company. As part of the deal, WJZY would be the new Fox affiliate on July 1, swapping affiliations with long-time Fox station WCCB, who announced its affiliation with The CW on April 18. During that time, on May 9, WJZY dropped all CW references/promos (with the execption of PSAs and lower-third during The Daily Buzz, which has since been dropped), and changed its branding as WJZY 46, the name it carried when it was still an independent station, then it was until June 30, Fox ran WJZY as a CW affiliate.

On July 1, WJZY switched to Fox, becoming a Fox owned-and-operated station and adopted the universal Fox O&O logo, using the legacy "46" numeral it used when it was still a CW affiliate. This logo branding is based on the Fox News logo; with their website names ("myfox(city name).com") based off of the domain for the social network Myspace, which former Fox parent News Corporation briefly owned.

On March 2, 2015, the station's name was changed to Fox 46 Charlotte. On November 5, 2019, Fox Television Stations subsidiary of Fox Corporation announced that WJZY and WMYT-TV would be acquired by Nexstar Media Group for $45 million in a deal concurrent with Fox's purchase of KCPQ and KZJO in Seattle and WITI in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from Nexstar. Nexstar stated that WJZY and WMYT were "geographically complementary" to its existing properties in the Southeastern United States. The sale was completed on March 2, 2020.
