The station first signed on the air on July 1, 1954 under the callsign WDBO-TV, standing for the two major cities in the market; Daytona Beach and Orlando. Or, as it was informally known, "Way Down By Orlando". It is the sixth-oldest television station in Florida, and the oldest in Central Florida. It was originally owned by the Orlando Broadcasting Company, which also owned WDBO radio (580 AM and 92.3 FM, now WWKA).

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.

In 1997, First Media merged with the Meredith Corporation, which already owned Fox affiliate WOFL (UHF channel 35). At the time, duopolies were not allowed, and Meredith decided to keep WOFL (which has since been sold to Fox Television Stations in 2002). In mid-1997, Meredith swapped WCPX-TV to what was then known as Post-Newsweek Stations in exchange for Hartford, Connecticut's WFSB (which at the time was Post-Newsweek's flagship station).

WKMG-TV

1998–2001

On January 30, 1998, the station changed its callsign to WKMG in honor of longtime Washington Post publisher, Katherine Meyer Graham. The former WCPX calls were later used by Paxson Communications (owner of WOPX-TV) for its Chicago station WCFC-TV.
