WTVW officially ended its 39-year affiliation with ABC and joined FOX on December 3, 1995 with ABC moving to former CBS affiliate WEHT and CBS moving to former FOX affiliate WEVV-TV
On May 11, 2011, Fox announced that it would disaffiliate from WTVW and move its programming to a subchannel of WEVV-TV that already carried programming from MyNetworkTV, effective July 1 (WEVV's main channel remains with CBS) – in effect, resulting in FOX returning to its original affiliate in Evansville.
On July 1, 2011 WTVW became an independent station as WEVV-DT2 took the FOX affiliation, rebranded as "Local 7", the station replaced FOX Primetime Shows with syndicated programming on weeknights, westerns on Saturdays and movies on Sundays.
On January 28, 2013, Mission Broadcasting announced that WTVW would become the new CW affiliate for the Tri-State area effective January 31. The affiliation came nearly a month after Roberts Broadcasting closed down WAZE-LP, WJPS-LP and WIKY-LP, which served as translators for Evansville's original CW affiliate WAZE-TV (the full-power WAZE signal shut down in early 2012, leaving the translators to carry it's programming until they ceased operations).
