WTEV is the CBS affiliate for Jacksonville, Florida and its surrounding areas, which stretch from St. Augustine in the south to Brunswick, Georgia in the north.

First created as an independent station, WNFT, in 1980, the channel became a UPN affiliate in 1995. The affiliate's call letters were changed to WTEV the same year.

In April 2002, The Florida Times-Union reported that the UPN affiliate would be leaving Jacksonville, and WTEV would switch to airing CBS programming. The former CBS affiliate, WJXT, moved to independent programming after 51 years on the air.

WTEV officially became a CBS affiliate on July 15, 2002.
