With WBVC and WGTU/WGTQ being co-owned, all are low-budget television stations and WBVC has the infamous poor on-air quality that WGTU and WGTQ have suffered from over the years. For non-cable viewers, it is possible that with the stations being co-owned, the CW could be offered on a digital subchannel of WGTU/WGTQ.

On July 25, 2006, a new logo for WBVC with CW affiliation appeared on WGTU/WGTQ's website. The grey WBVC CW logo is not in the standard CW logo color which is green. This change shows that WBVC will become part of the new network via The CW Plus, which is similar to The WB 100+. WGTU's website did not post any announcements about WBVC's future as a CW affiliate until a few weeks before the new network started. UPN programming currently airs in a delayed arrangement on WFQX, a primary FOX affiliate. WFQX will be dropping the secondary affiliation with UPN, but it is unknown what will air in UPN's place if anything, although FOX's sister network, MyNetworkTV, might be picked up.

Before the logo change, WBVC was identified on-air as WB 61, Northern Michigan's WB. With the coming CW affiliation, the station branding has become Northern Michigan's CW. Also before the logo switch, WBVC's WB logo offered a link to The WB Pass, a website for some WB 100+ stations. This link is no longer active.
