In 1959, WJZ-TV built the first three-antenna candelabra tower, sharing it with the other local Baltimore stations, WMAR-TV and WBAL-TV. In 1977, WJZ-TV News began its Electronic News Gathering (ENG) Library, recording newscasts and retaining raw footage on a daily basis.
WJZ-TV often preempted ABC programming in favor of locally produced shows and syndicated content from Westinghouse's broadcasting division, Group W. The affiliation switch to CBS occurred in 1995, ending WJZ-TV's decades long link with ABC. Westinghouse bought CBS in 1996, making WJZ-TV a CBS owned and operated station.
