On March 2, 1975, channel 3 signed off from the Peabody Hotel for the last time as WREC-TV, and signed back on 45 minutes later, re-branded as WREG-TV, with its first transmission from the new studios on Channel 3 Drive.

WREG is one of the few CBS stations that preempts CBS This Morning Saturday, airing a three-hour Saturday morning newscast in its place.Over the years, WREG has produced many local programs, such as News Channel 3 Knowledge Bowl and Mid-South Outdoors (later known as News Channel 3 Outdoors).If the deal receives regulatory approval by the FCC and the U. Department of Justice's Antitrust Division, WREG would gain new sister stations in adjacent markets, including ABC affiliate KATV in Little Rock, and the Nashville virtual triopoly of Fox affiliate WZTV, CW affiliate WNAB and My Network TV affiliate WUXP-TV.
