UPN44 confirms in a press release and FAQ that it will become the Bay Area affiliate of the new CW Network, which was formed through the merger of UPN and WB. The network will be owned by Time Warner (which owns the WB) and CBS (which owns UPN and Channel 44). The new network will air shows ranging from the sitcom “Reba” to the “Smackdown” wrestling program. The switch will occur after Labor Day, and it will leave KBWB-TV “WB20” without a network.
