In the 1990s, the station began to air a 10pm newscast produced by WTOL. The partnership between the two stations ended in 2000, and WUPW launched its own news department. WTOL is the CBS television affiliate in Toledo, Ohio. ...


WUPW was the only Toledo over-the-air television station to air cartoons weekday afternoons, as the local WB affiliate, WT05 is a cable station. The station added a 4pm newscast after FOX discontinued kids' weekday programming in 2001. The WB Television Network is a television network in the United States, founded as a joint venture between the Warner Bros. ...

Year 2001 (MMI) was a common year starting on Monday (link displays the 2001 Gregorian calendar). ...


Originally, WUPW was owned by a consortium of local investors and private companies. They sold the station to Atlanta-based Ellis Communications in 1993. Three years later, Ellis Communications was sold to a group led by the Retirement Systems of Alabama, who merged it with Aflac's broadcasting group to form Raycom Media. Year 1993 (MCMXCIII) was a common year starting on Friday (link will display full 1993 Gregorian calendar). ...

After Raycom acquired Malrite Broadcasting (which owned NBC affiliate WNWO-TV) in 1999, WUPW was spun off to Sunrise Television due to FCC rules at the time prohibiting common ownership of two stations in the same market, as Raycom opted to keep the longer-established WNWO at that time. LIN acquired the station in 2002 through its purchase of Sunrise Television. Ironically, Raycom bought WTOL in 2006 after Liberty Broadcasting merged with Raycom (WNWO was sold to Barrington Broadcasting due to current FCC rules prohibiting common ownership of two of the four largest stations in a single market).

Barrington Broadcasting Company, LLC (best known as Barrington Broadcasting), headquartered in Hoffman Estates, Illinois is an entity wholly focused on broadcast television. ...


In early June 2007, WUPW along with three other LIN-owned FOX affiliates switched their websites over to FOX Interactive Media's MyFOX platform, which is already being used by FOX O&O's. The LIN-owned stations are the first non-FOX O&O's to adopt the new site design. On a related topic, WUPW earlier in 2007 also switched to the FOX O&O News Theme, and also uses a version of the FOX O&O graphics that were modified in-house. The theme and graphics were offered to all FOX affiliates, regardless of ownership, through affiliate news video service FOX News Edge.
