History

WUHF Channel 31 began operations on May 15, 1980 as a general entertainment independent station running cartoons, sitcoms (classic and recent), movies, drama shows, and religious shows. The station was owned by Malrite. In 1986 WUHF became a charter affiliate of FOX for Rochester and then known as Fox 31. Most of the religious shows were gone by then. In 1989 Act III Broadcasting would buy WUHF. In a group deal Abry would become the owner of WUHF in 1994. By 1996 WUHF was controlled by Sinclair and eventually sold to them. In the 90's the classic sitcoms, movies, and drama shows made way for talk shows, reality shows, and court shows. Cartoons were ended on weekdays at the end of 2001 when Fox ended its weekday kids block nationwide.
