On January 24, 2006, Time Warner announced that the company would merge the operations of The WB with CBS Corporation's UPN (which CBS acquired one month earlier in December 2005 following its split from Viacom), to form a joint venture called The CW Television Network.KTWB was one of the three Tribune stations passed over for an affiliation as CBS-owned UPN affiliate KSTW (which was included in 11 of 14 CBS-owned UPN affiliates) was chosen as The CW's Seattle-Tacoma charter station.KTZZ was also the home, for several years, of the eclectic Seattle talk show The Spud Goodman Show.Producing the weekly interview/music/feature show was an ambitious undertaking for a small station, and the program relied heavily on a large staff of volunteers. As a result, KTZZ began airing CBS shows pre-empted by KIRO-TV (channel 7), along with paid programming and brokered shows.KMYQ changed its call letters to KZJO and rebranded as JOEtv during Tribune's private equity ownership era; the branding remains, though the 'casual' elements of it have been completely played down.On September 19, 2011, the station moved My Network TV programming yet again, this time, back one hour to 12 a.m.KZJO, virtual channel 22 (UHF digital channel 25), is a My Network TV-affiliated television station licensed to Seattle, Washington, United States and also serving Tacoma.The station is owned by the Tribune Broadcasting subsidiary of the Tribune Media Company, as part of a duopoly with Tacoma-licensed Fox affiliate KCPQ (channel 13).
On April 24, 2018, Sinclair changed its plans for KZJO and decided instead to acquire the station and form a new duopoly with KOMO but would sell KUNS to partner company Howard Stirk Holdings, with Sinclair retaining control of the latter through joint sales and shared services agreements, which would form a virtual triopoly in the Seattle market. newscast (Q13 Fox News @ Nine on my Q², now called Q13 News @ Nine on JOEtv) Monday through Sunday.

(the first was KQCA/Sacramento, which has since moved My Network TV programming back to its recommended 8–10 p.m. On September 13, 2010, the station moved its My Network TV programming to 11 pm.
KTZZ was losing ground and unable to acquire strong off-network syndicated shows.
With KCPQ now in the kids business, the best cartoons were now airing on KSTW and KCPQ, leaving KTZZ with leftovers (which still was about 5 hours worth of cartoons a day).
