All eight CBS-owned stations that currently are affiliates of The CW network will transition to independent stations, beginning Friday, Sept. 1. The announcement was made by CBS Stations president Tom Canedo, who oversees the eight stations that will become independents.
As part of the transition, KBCW-TV in San Francisco will change its call letters to KPYX and be branded as KPIX+, and WPCW in Pittsburgh will change its call letters to WPKD-TV and be branded as KDKA+. The stations’ new brands align with the call letters for their CBS sister stations, KPIX in San Francisco and KDKA in Pittsburgh. The other six stations will keep their current call letters and will be branded with the city where they are based and channel number (e.g. KSTW-TV, Seattle11). —CBS info—
