WJBF - Channel 6
Augusta's first television station, WJBF-TV, began operations on November 23, 1953. Although starting as an NBC affiliate in 1954, it became the primary ABC affiliate in 1967. WJBF and WAGT (Channel 26-NBC) merged in 2010 and moved to their new location in 2011.
The station was founded by local entrepreneur, J.B. Fuqua, who also owned NBC Radio Network affiliate WJBF (1230 AM).
