TI Broadcast Solutions Group of Norcross, GA, will handle transmitter integration and program management for the statewide project, including architectural services and general construction, existing tower refurbishment, new tower construction and antenna replacements.

Georgia Public Broadcasting, which serves every county in the state, includes WGTV-TV in Atlanta, WABW-TV in Albany, WCES-TV in Augusta, WCLP-TV in Chatsworth, WJSP-TV in Columbus, WACS-TV in Dawson, WMUM-TV in Macon, WVAN-TV in Savannah and WXGA-TV in Waycross.
