Later in 1994, on December 11, WKBD lost its Fox affiliation as WJBK and its owner, New World Communications, signed a deal with the network. The Fox logo was removed from the station's logo as a result.
In 1995, Viacom launched UPN, with WKBD serving as one of the backbones of the new network. Soon afterward, it began branding itself as UPN 50.
