On June 6, 1982, WDBO-TV, in preparation for a possible sale of its then-owner, Outlet Broadcasting to Columbia Pictures, changed its callsign to WCPX-TV. The proposed deal fell through, but the station kept the new callsign for almost 16 years, and kept its "lined" 6 used during its final years under the WDBO-TV call sign.
