Fox detroit dating spot

When Kaiser dropped the program, the show's production moved to Detroit where it was produced by and aired on WXON (channel 20, now WMYD).The show moved briefly to WGPR (channel 62, now WWJ-TV) and then back to WXON.

Shortly thereafter, the station dropped the -TV suffix from its call letters, becoming simply WKBD once again.

This was a result of WJBK's then-owner, New World Communications, striking a group deal with Fox to switch the network affiliations of twelve of the company's stations to Fox (which then bought ten of the New World stations affected by the deal in 1996; New World had earlier sold two other stations it could not keep due to ownership conflicts to Fox outright).

CBS then approached WKBD for an affiliation after being turned down by WXYZ-TV (channel 7) and WDIV, since it was the only non-Big Three station in Detroit that had a functioning news department.

WKBD briefly gained a network affiliation in the spring of 1967, when it became the Detroit affiliate of the short-lived United Network.

For many years, it aired an afternoon movie hosted by Detroit legend Bill Kennedy.
