WOGX, channel 51, is the Fox owned and operated television station for Ocala and Gainesville, Florida. Its transmitter is located in Marion County between Williston and I-75. Owned by Fox Television Stations, WOGX is sister to Fox affiliate WOFL and MyNetworkTV affiliate WRBW. Although WOGX maintains offices located in Ocala (along I-75 on Southwest 37th Avenue) and Gainesville (on Northwest 43rd Street), master control of the station is located at the WOFL and WRBW studios on Skyline Drive in Lake Mary. WOGX is considered a semi-satellite of WOFL. It airs most of WOFL's non-network programming although sometimes at different times. There are also programs that only air on WOGX and some are only seen on WOFL.

History

The station began as independent station WBSP-TV on November 1, 1983. It changed its call letters to the current WOGX in 1987. The WBSP calls now belong to a repeater of WUVF-CA, Southwest Florida's Univision affiliate. In 1991, the station took the Fox affiliation from Citrus County's W49AI. That station was a repeater of future sister station WOFL.

Before W49AI lost its affiliation, most of WOFL's programs, including those from the network, was originally seen on that station. However, it did not air WOFL's late-night programming because it signed off at Midnight. It should be known, however, that W49AI served only Citrus County. Cable viewers in Marion County at the time got Fox from WOFL and Tampa Bay's WTOG (the latter through 1988 when Fox moved to WFTS). Gainesville viewers did not receive Fox programming until WOGX picked up the affiliation in 1991. The Cox cable system there did not carry any of the Fox affiliates nearest to Gainesville at the time (WOFL, WTOG, or Jacksonville's WAWS).

During the 1990s, WOGX became owned by Meredith Corporation and had its operations moved to WOFL's studios. WOGX began simulcasting WOFL's newscasts when they launched in March of 1998. In 2002, Meredith sold WOFL and WOGX to Fox Television Stations Group in exchange for KPTV in Portland, Oregon. This made WOFL and WOGX Fox owned and operated stations; the stations also became sister stations to UPN affiliate WRBW. It is unknown if WOGX will have its website redone to match other Fox-owned stations (including WOFL).
