Christian Broadcasting Network founded the broadcaster. The station aired its first broadcast on 10th October 1977. It emerged as an independent broadcaster on UHF channel 25. The early programming of the broadcaster comprised syndicated reruns and six hours of religious programming. It was targeted towards family-audience. WXNE-TV was the first callsign of the channel. In the early 1980s, more content was added to the daily schedule. It included made-for-TV movies, cartoons, family dramas, and off-network sitcoms.
In 1983, the station switched to the brand name “Boston 25” and using it until the current date. At that time, Boston 25 stood third place in the list of independent broadcasters and sixth according to the ratings of commercial TV broadcasters in the market.

In August of the same year, News Corporation announced to acquire WXNE to make it and owned-and-operated channel of its Fox Broadcasting Company. The sale was completed on 31st December of the same year. After the acquisition, News Corporation changed the calls of the TV broadcaster to what it currently uses “WFXT” on 19th January 1987.
