WXGA-TV channel 8, part of the GPB network, is licensed to Waycross, Georgia. It serves the southeastern corner of the state, including the lower portions of the Georgia Atlantic Coast and the Okefenokee Swamp, from a transmitter located south of Hasty; the signal travels in about a 50-mile (80-km) radius from the transmitter site.

History

In late 1961, WXGA-TV channel 8 signed on as Georgia's third educational television station, following Atlanta's WETV (now WPBA-TV) and Athens' WGTV.

In 2001 WXGA began digital transmission on channel 9. However, since its sister station WVAN-TV in Savannah broadcasts its analog signal on channel 9, WXGA-TV can only broadcast its signal at a low power, of only 20 kilowatts. Unless it changes digital channels, it is unlikely that GPB will boost WXGA's digital power until the analog shutdown in 2009.
