HistoryEdit

The station first signed on the air in October 1992 as WMLB-TV. Originally operating as an independent station, the station changed its call letters to WDLP-TV in 1993, before changing it again to WCTD several months later. Channel 35 was acquired by Paxson Communications (the forerunner of Ion Media Networks) in 1997. Shortly after the sale was finalized, the station became an affiliate of the Infomail TV Network (inTV), which carried an infomercial format. On August 31, 1998, the station's call letters were changed to WPXM-TV; that same date, the station became a charter owned-and-operated station of Pax TV (now Ion Television).

From 2002 through the 2005 season, WPXM was the flagship broadcast station of the Florida Marlins (now the Miami Marlins). It also aired on sister station WPXP in West Palm Beach.
