In 1994, as part of a large affiliation deal between New World Communications and the Fox network, WAGA-TV severed ties with CBS and took over Fox, taking that network away from WATL. The station would soon affiliate with The WB, and WGNX, initially set to affiliate with said network, would instead affiliate with CBS. WATL was then sold to Renaissance Broadcasting, which in 1997 became part of the Tribune Company, the then-owners of WGNX and part-owners of The WB.
