Press Releases and Announcements





March 27, 2017  WGTA Affiliates with the ME-TV Network
 
WGTA is pleased to announce that Me-TV will be the flagship network on its station, allowing subscribers to DirecTV and Dish to view the network for the first time in Atlanta.  Me-TV is the #1 classic television network in the US, with all the favorite family-friendly shows you loved growing up.  Me-TV will be carried on all major cable providers as well and can be viewed over the air on Channel 32.1.
 
We are aware that our signal reaches only the NE and eastern suburbs of Atlanta.  We are in negotiations with other television stations in the city to retransmit our signal over the city.  That process will likely take weeks or months before our signal can reach many of you.  Our tower is located in Toccoa, Georgia and it may be possible for many of you to receive our signal through the use of a large rooftop UHF antenna pointed toward Toccoa.
 
For all of you that have come to love Heroes & Icons, the network has moved to our channel 32.2 over the air, and will continue to be carried by all major cable providers in April.  We have offered the satellite companies (DirecTV and Dish) the signal for free but they have declined to carry it.  Fortunately, you can find such wonderful programming through most any cable TV provider or over the air.
 
We are excited to add Me-TV.  If you have not watched it before, you will love it, just as much as you have loved H&I.  Now you can watch both on your favorite cable systems or over the air if you are in range.
 
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we complete the transition.  We aim to be your #1 destination for favorite classic television.






Marquee Broadcasting Georgia Acquires WUGA and Renames it WGTA

Toccoa, GA, July 1, 2015

Marquee Broadcasting Georgia and the University of Georgia closed on their previously announced sale of WUGA, the full power TV station licensed to Toccoa, GA and part of the Atlanta television market.   The station converted from a noncommercial station showing PBS programming to a commercial station carrying three classic television and movie networks. 

The station is changing its call letters to WGTA, standing for its unique audience originating from Greenville to Atlanta.  It is northeast Georgia's only full power television station, and it will be carried on cable and satellite systems in more than two million homes, or over two percent of the population of the United States.  Over the air it can be found on Channel 32 and will air three networks associated with Weigel  Broadcasting -- Heroes & Icons, Decades and Movies!.  Descriptions of these networks can be found on its website wgtatv.com.

"In today's complicated world, there is a greater need than ever for wholesome family entertainment," states Marquee President Patricia Lane.  "Sharing your love for classic TV shows is a wonderful way to spend time with family.  We invite our viewers to rediscover the drama, laughter, and entertainment that come from watching good TV."

Marquee owns other stations in Salisbury, Maryland and Dover, Delaware.  For further information contact Patricia Lane, 706-297-3954, patricia_lane@marqueebroadcasting.com.
