History

Channel 25 signed on as WXNE-TV (for "Christ (X) in New England") on October 10, 1977. The station was originally owned by the Christian Broadcasting Network. The early format consisted of older syndicated reruns which were deemed to be "family-friendly" as well as a healthy dose of religious programming such as CBN's own 700 Club and programs of many other televangelists. Religious programming ran for about six hours a day during the week and all day on Sundays. Secular programming on WXNE consisted of westerns, old movies, family type drama shows, old film shorts, and classic television shows. By 1980, the religious programming was cut back on Sundays to air 6:00 to 11:00 A.M. and 7:00 P.M. to 12:00 midnight. It also aired about four to five hours a day during the week. is the 283rd day of the year (284th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Also: 1977 (album) by Ash. ... The Christian Broadcasting Network, or CBN, is, as its name implies, a Christian television broadcasting network in the United States. ...

The station began adding more cartoons, made-for-television movies, and off network sitcoms in the early 1980s. At the same time, the station rebranded itself "Boston 25", in the conversion to being a true independent. While the station was only on cable systems in the Greater Boston market, WXNE was a solid third among independent stations, behind WSBK-TV and WLVI-TV, and sixth among commercial television stations.

In October of 1986 WXNE became Boston's affiliate for the new Fox network. It was a precursor to a sale of the station to Fox which would be complete in a matter of months. Prior to the sale to Fox, WXNE did not air The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers, Fox's inaugural program and a weeknight show which aired opposite Johnny Carson's Tonight Show on NBC. The outgoing CBN ownership believed that the program did not fit its strict content guidelines. Fox instead contracted Boston radio station WMRE 1510 AM (now WWZN) to carry the audio portion of the Late Show until its purchase of WXNE was completed. Joan Rivers actually mentioned the ban of the show in Boston on her opening night (October 9, 1986). She poked fun at the fact by letting her WMRE radio listeners know a description of what she looked like, which was sort of exaggerated (she concluded her physical description by saying she had a Red Sox hat on, which she did not.

When the sale of Channel 25 to Fox was finalized on January 19, 1987, Fox changed the station's call letters to WFXT and made a few on-air changes. Besides adding the Late Show to the schedule, the 700 Club was demoted to a once-a-day airing and the daily broadcast of a Roman Catholic Mass was moved to an earlier timeslot. Fox programmed aggressively, purchasing popular off network sitcoms and syndicated fare. In April of 1987, the Sunday evening religious programming block was replaced with Fox programming.

In purchasing channel 25, Fox was granted a temporary waiver of a FCC rule prohibiting the common ownership of a television station and a newspaper in the same market. Fox's parent company, News Corporation, also published the Boston Herald. In 1990, Fox placed WFXT in a trust company, and in 1991, sold the station outright to the Boston Celtics. The team would maintain the network relationship while making WFXT the basketball team's flagship. The Celtics, however, did not have the financial means to compete as a broadcaster. By 1992, WFXT was on many more cable systems in areas of New England where Fox programming was not available. Locally, however, the station was a distant third behind WSBK and WLVI.

Heather Kahn anchoring the Fox 25 News at 10 out of NECN in 1993.

However, one of the few productive moves (ratings-wise) WFXT made under the Celtics tenure was commissioning the young regional cable channel NECN to produce a 10:00 P.M. newscast for them which launched in early 1993. Fox 25 News at 10 was a half-hour newscast initially anchored by NECN's Heather Kahn with Tim Kelley on weather. Kahn lasted a year and a half in this role before transferring to WCVB-TV where she became a well-known member of their NewsCenter 5 team. NECN's Lila Orbach replaced Kahn on the WFXT newscast and went with the 10:00 P.M. news when it moved to WSBK in October of 1995 as it became UPN 38 Prime News.

News Corporation sold the Boston Herald in 1994, opening the door for its Fox subsidiary to purchase WFXT for a second time in mid-1995. Although the network was pushing for more news-intensive formats for its stations, channel 25 moved slowly in building its own news department. After the station did not renew its contract with NECN, there were no newscasts on WFXT from 1995 to 1996 except for national Fox News updates aired during the day. During this time, WFXT was the second-to-last Fox owned-and-operated station left without any local news as well as the last such station running a morning kids block. The station did not produce its own primetime 10 PM newscast until September of 1996. From that point, the station established its news operation ever so gradually. WFXT was the television flagship of the Boston Red Sox for the baseball team's 2000, 2001, and 2002 seasons. In 2002, WFXT actually carried more Red Sox games than NESN, the team-owned regional sports network. Also that season, WFXT briefly experimented with a 4:30 PM newscast with Jodi Applegate. By the fall of 2002, this became a half-hour 5:00 P.M. newscast. In 2003, the station added a morning newscast and the 5:00 P.M. news was expanded to an hour.

Today, channel 25 runs about 30 hours a week of local news along with first-run syndicated talk, reality, and court shows. The station also airs some off-network sitcoms.

At one point, the station was "tentatively planning" to air News Corporation-owned and Fox sister network MyNetworkTV from 1:00 to 3:00 P.M. on the weekdays if the new network could not find an affiliate in the Boston market. On July 21, 2006, Derry, New Hampshire-based WZMY-TV was announced as Boston's affiliate of MyNetworkTV, which began operations on September 5, 2006. Although MyNetworkTV does not air on WFXT, the station has promoted programming for the network during its newscasts. Cast members from MyNetworkTV's programs have been interviewed by WFXT-TV's anchors. Viewers are then encouraged to tune in to WZMY to see the primetime programs.
