As we all know, all the former New World stations, including WJBK in Detroit, WJW in Cleveland, and WAGA in Atlanta, all refused to air Fox Kids when the stations switched to Fox in 1994. Instead, all of their stations either expanded their newscasts, or ordered more syndicated program. At the time, it was unprecedented. However, I do believe it lead to more stations cutting back on network daytime programming.
However, what if stations like WJBK aired Fox kids? Would Fox kids have lasted longer? I’ve always wondered what would’ve happened if the New World tv stations aired all of Fox, instead of just sports and network programming.
Just a food for thought.
