WGNX became the CBS affiliate for the Atlanta market in December 1994, after WAGA-TV switched its affiliation to Fox, as part of an affiliation deal with New World Communications. Originally, WGNX was set to affiliate to The WB, as Tribune held a minority stake in that network. The WB instead ended up on former Fox affiliate (and sister station between 1997 and 1998) WATL.
