In 1985, the equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR) acquired Storer Communications, Incorporated in a leveraged buyout.
KKR then sold all of the Storer broadcast assets, including WJBK, to Gillett Communications in 1987, after an attempt to sell the stations to Lorimar-Telepictures in 1986 failed.
Scripps considered trading WXYZ back to ABC in order to bid for the Gillett stations as a group.
However, this would have put Scripps above the FCC's ownership limit of the time even if Scripps sold off its smaller-market stations, so this was abandoned.
WJBK would also pre-empt the CBS late night schedule with syndicated reruns including Cheers and late night movies until the debut of the Late Show with David Letterman in 1993, when the station cleared the show at p.m.
The station went through a number of ownership and management changes with its parent companies in the 1980s and 1990s.
When Gillett went bankrupt in 1992, it reorganized the ownership of its television stations into SCI Television.
