History as WCGV

B&F launched the channel on March 24, 1980 from its original facilities on North 27th Street also used by CBS-affiliate WITI; WITI moved to another location in Brown Deer in 1978. WCGV was an independent station that broadcasted movies, cartoons, drama series and religious programs during the day time while also accepting select NBC and CBS content rejected b WTMJ and WITI. Tempo 24 was a well-recognized afternoon talk show backed by local production. It dropped SelecTV in 1984 in order to gear up for WVTV: Ch 18. It was branded as TV-24

Fox and UPN Affiliation

WCGV got affiliated with Fox on March 15, 1987 as the network was turned down by WVTV in 1986. It was renamed as Fox 24. WCGV was acquired by Abry Communications in 1990. It continued with general entertainment programming under the new ownership while signing an LMA with Gaylord-owned WVTV in 1994.
