On September 22, 1995, the station changed its call letters from WGPR to WWJ-TV after its newly-made sister radio station, which CBS owned from 1989 to 2017. The station was branded on-air as Detroit's 62 CBS after CBS acquired the station.

In 2002, WWJ-TV rebranded itself as simply CBS Detroit thereby dropping its analog channel number in the process due to the fact of being the only CBS O&O station operating one of the highest analog channel numbers in existence.

On March 15, 2012, WWJ-TV rebranded itself as CBS 62, after a ten-year absence from using the channel 62 allocation for on-air branding use, putting the station in line with most of CBS' other owned-and-operated stations (except the four other CBS O&O's which continue to use their call letters as their on-air branding) and also to avoid confusion with former sister station WWJ-AM.

On September 1, 2022, WWJ-TV rebranded from "CBS 62" to "CBS Detroit" (which was previously used from 2002 to 2008) in anticipation of the launch of CBS News Detroit. By year's end, the launch plan had changed, owing to supply chain- and pandemic-induced delays: weeknight newscasts at 6 and 11 p.m. launched on January 23, 2023, with additional local news in the morning, midday and afternoon hours to follow later in the first half of the year.
