The station also employed modern outside broadcasting technologies such as cellular and Wi-Fi-based equipment, instead of microwave transmission (the station initially planned to obtain a microwave truck as a backup, but has since dropped those plans). For most of UPN's run, WJZY was one of the network's strongest affiliates. 46.3 was re-activated once again on October 1, 2015, carrying the Heroes & Icons network. The station first signed on the air on March 9, 1987, originally operating as an independent station. WOGX in Ocala/Gainesville, Florida is based in a smaller market, but operates as a semi-satellite of WOFL in Orlando and is counted as part of that station for regulatory purposes. Ron Romines has been named vice president and general manager of Nexstar’s WJZY-WMYT Charlotte.  On September 12, 2011, the station's branding reverted to "CW 46". Alternate version with "Cable 8" moniker.

Indeed, Fox Television Stations president Jack Abernathy said that Fox had set its sights on buying a station in Charlotte specifically because it was an NFC market.
At that time, classic sitcoms, and more recent off-network sitcoms and movies were added to channel 46's schedule.
The station began transmitting its network programming in high definition with the launch of its digital signal in September 2002.
, In its initial form, the newscast was produced in a somewhat non-traditional fashion designed to target younger viewers, carrying characteristics of the similarly unconventional public affairs program Chasing News from MyNetworkTV flagship WWOR-TV in Secaucus, New Jersey; however, while Chasing was patterned off the format of TMZ, WJZY's newscast still contained some conventional traits.  It was originally owned by Metro-Crescent Communications, a locally based group that included then-Charlotte mayor Harvey Gantt and longtime Charlotte broadcasters Bob Hilker and Bill Rollins. From May 1994 to June 1995, and again from September 2003 to April 8, 2012, CBS affiliate WBTV produced a nightly 10:00 p.m. newscast for WJZY through separate news share agreements; in the intervening period, the newscast aired on PBS member station WTVI.

Fox also announced that the station would adopt the on-air brand "Fox 46 Carolinas" at that time. In 2009, WJZY changed its name to Charlotte's WJZY, dropping its channel number in favor of its call sign.
A new website ("myfoxcarolinas.com") and Facebook page were established for the station in June 2013; upon its launch, the station's new website only contained advertising for the station and Fox primetime programs. By September 2013, a full MyFox Carolinas website was launched through Fox Television Stations' digital partner WorldNow, adding local news coverage.  However, on June 28, news director Geoff Roth, who recently arrived from fellow Fox station KRIV in Houston, Texas; said that Fox would heavily renovate and expand the Performance Road studio to accommodate the news department. Less than a year later, the Capitol Broadcasting Company, owner of WRAL-TV in Raleigh, bought WJZY. When the Hornets returned as the Charlotte Bobcats in 2004, WJZY served as the team's over-the-air flagship until the telecasts moved to WMYT in 2006.  On May 6, WJZY began airing a promo announcing that it would switch to Fox itself on July 1, which made WJZY the first station in Charlotte to be an owned-and-operated station of one of the "Big Four" networks. This meant that no technical work had to be done upon the purchase by Fox, which transmits network programming in the 720p format, though it was under The CW's 1080i preference. From WMYT, Sonlife moved from 55.3 to 46.3, Buzzr from 55.2 to 46.7, and Light TV from 55.4 to 46.8. WJZY served as the over-the-air home of NBA's Charlotte Hornets from 1992 to 1998, during the height of the team's popularity.
WJZY, virtual channel 46 (UHF digital channel 25), is a Fox-affiliated television station serving Charlotte, North Carolina, United States that is licensed to Belmont.The station is owned by Nexstar Media Group, as part of a duopoly with Rock Hill, South Carolina-licensed MyNetworkTV affiliate WMYT-TV (channel 55).
