The Newhouse family largely exited broadcasting in 1980. The WSYR cluster had been grandfathered after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) forbade common ownership of newspaper and broadcasting outlets, but lost this protection when Advance dismantled its broadcasting division. Channel 3 was sold to the Times Mirror Company, who—so as to comply with an FCC rule in effect at the time that prohibited TV and radio stations in the same market, but with different owners from sharing the same callsigns—changed the television station's calls to WSTM-TV (for "Syracuse Times Mirror") on March 28 and kept the James Street studios. They later sold channel 3 to to SJL Broadcast Management, a broadcast holding company controlled by George Lilly. SJL then sold WSTM-TV to Federal Broadcasting in 1992, who would later be acquired by Raycom Media in 1997. The WSYR-TV callsign has been used for channel 3's rival, the ABC affiliate on VHF channel 9 (formerly WIXT) since 2005.

On February 28, 2013, Barrington Broadcasting announced the sale of its entire group, including WSTM-TV and the SSA for WTVH, to the Hunt Valley, Maryland-based Sinclair Broadcast Group (which announced that it would not renew the SSA with WTVH when it expires in March 2017).
