FOX54 first signed on in May 1991 and has been the CSRA's reliable FOX affiliate ever since. In 2003 WFXG aired its first newscast, giving the people of the CSRA a new choice in the late-night news programming: the market's first and only 10 p.m. option. Our news operation expanded once again in 2017 with the addition of our 4-hour FOX54 Morning News Now. This show became the longest locally-produced morning newscast in the area. The growth didn’t stop there.

We began our next chapter in January 2019 when the station was purchased by Lockwood Broadcasting. That year, WFXG launched two more newscasts – the 6:30 and 11 p.m. editions. Since then, WFXG has continued to expand. An additional hour of morning news was added to the lineup in July, 2022. FOX54's 5 hours of continuing coverage is still the market's longest local morning newscast Monday through Friday. In August, 2022, FOX54 added 5:00 and 5:30 p.m. newscasts, anchored by trusted local journalists Kimberely Scott and Trent Butler, alongside Chief Meteorologist Jay Jefferies.
