History[edit]

The station first signed on the air in 1990 as W47AZ. Originally serving as an affiliate of the viewer-request "music video network "The Box, the station changed its call letters to WBXI-CA in 2001; that year, the station switched to "MTV2 following that network's acquisition by "Viacom, which acquired WBXI-CA. For a few months in 2004, channel 47 served as a "repeater of then-sister station and "UPN affiliate "WNDY-TV (channel 23, now a "MyNetworkTV affiliate); this ended when Viacom's Television Stations Group (now "CBS Television Stations) subsidiary sold WNDY-TV to the "LIN TV Corporation, owners of then-"CBS (now "CW) affiliate "WISH-TV (channel 8), in February 2005.

Viacom retained ownership of WBXI-CA, before spinning it off to "CBS Corporation in December of that year, following CBS's "split from the former company; "Viacom retained ownership of the "MTV Networks; however, the station maintained its MTV2 affiliation. In 2007, the station switched to MTV2's "Spanish language sister network "MTV Tres.

As of 2014, Channel 47 is no longer airing Tr3s; instead, it is showing localized weather info.
