By Lou Phelps, Savannah Business Journal

February 15, 2017 – Comcast has notified its Savannah area customers that effective March 12, their cable subscribers will no longer be able to view WGSA television channel.  For Comcast customers, it is Channel 13 in the Savannah area.

WGSA is an Independent television station for Georgia's Coastal Empire and South Carolina's Lowcountry that is licensed to Baxley, Georgia. It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 35 (or virtual channel 35.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter on Fort Argyle Road/SR 204 in western unincorporated Chatham County, Georgia.

As of September 11, 2016, WGSA lost its “CW” television affiliation to WSAV digital 3.2, and it's now an independent station.

The company is locally owned by the Southern TV Corporation, with studios on Mall Blvd, Savannah.

Syndicated programming on WGSA includes Access Hollywood, The Insider, The Jerry Springer Show, and The Dr. Oz Show among others.
