WIWB 14 (now WCWF 14) of Green Bay, Wisconsin, licensed to Suring, Wisconsin, was late to the party. They started out as Pax TV owned and operated station WPXG-TV 14 before switching to The WB (with Pax TV programs still airing overnight) on June 2nd, 1999.

Before June 2nd, WACY-TV 32, the local UPN affiliate licensed to Appleton, Wisconsin, was a secondary affiliate of The WB network, airing Kids' WB, daytime and primetime programming from that network alongside UPN, local and syndicated programming.

WACY-TV 32 even aired an all-day childrens' block in the mid-late 1990s known as "Wacky 32," consisting of programming from UPN Kids, Kids' WB, BKN and syndication, which also included E/I compliant programs. They also aired the Pokemon anime in first-run syndication in 1998 before the broadcasting rights were picked up by Kids' WB in 1999. When WIWB, channel 14 became The WB on June 2nd, WACY-TV 32's Wacky 32 childrens' block lost a significant amount of programming to the new network.
