There were so many people in a daze and things that were so heartbreaking that we had to filter through in order to figure out how to cover a story like that. We didn't put a lot of those images on the air, because we determined that people don't need to see every bloody detail. But we have to see those things ourselves so we can decide.

Additionally, the prospect of KWGN as a multi-market Fox affiliate was unattractive, since most of the smaller markets in its vast cable footprint had enough stations to provide Fox affiliates at the outset. The affiliation instead went to KDVR. Inthe station altered its longstanding "Denver's 2" branding to "Denver's WB2," to reflect its network affiliation; the "WB2" branding continued to be used in some form for the remainder of KWGN's tenure with the network.
In preparation for the affiliation switch, the station retitled its newscasts from WB 2 News to News 2 on August 14, On July 7,KWGN removed references to its CW affiliation from its branding in both station promotions and its on-air logo, as part of a decision by Tribune Broadcasting to de-emphasize the network brand from its CW-affiliated stations as a result of the network's relatively weak ratings, choosing to reposition them as more "local" stations; KWGN began referring to itself simply as "2," featuring the CW branding era's "2" logotype within a solid circle logo.
Although it was the longer-established of the two stations, KWGN served as the junior partner in the virtual duopoly. As a result, the station would migrate its operations into KDVR's studio facility on Speer Boulevard in downtown Denver based at the same location where KWGN's original studios were located during the station's first 30 years on the air.
The move resulted in both stations combining their news departments and sharing certain syndicated programming.
On March 30,KWGN changed its on-air branding once again to "2 the Deuce," in an attempt to appeal to younger viewers and become more involved in local issues.
