WJZ-TV is a CBS affiliate located in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. The TV station started in 1948 as WAAM-TV and was changed to WJZ in 1957. The call letters were taken from the now WABC-TV station in New York City. It was formerly an ABC affiliate at the time of its launch until January 2, 1995 when it switched to CBS. The network used Eyewitness News for its newscasts until October 23, 2017, when it was replaced by WJZ News. Also, the station has the similar logo as used for WBZ-TV in Boston.

On August 9, 2018, WJZ opened a new studio with new artwork and slogan called "presenting our future."
