WVEU became the charter UPN flagship station upon the network's launch (debut) on January 16, 1995. The station then adopted the name UPN 69. In the summer of that year after the station's owners, Ellis Communications sold WVEU to Viacom's Paramount Stations Group in exchange for KSLA in Shreveport, Louisiana & the station changed its callsign to WUPA for UPN Atlanta.

In 2006, UPN and The WB were merged to form The CW. WUPA joined The CW despite the presence of a Tribune-owned WB affiliate, WATL. Tribune had agreed to sign their WB affiliates to The CW, except in Atlanta and Seattle where Viacom/CBS had strong UPN O&Os.

The channel number returned to the station's identity in 2008, after a six-year absence.
