13WMAZ made history on September 27, 1953, when the station signed on as the area’s first VHF television station. In 1953, Central Georgians were already very familiar with WMAZ. In fact, the call letters date back to 1922 and the first broadcast for WMAZ Radio. The radio station began as a physics class project at Mercer University, and the call letters they chose stood for 'Watch Mercer Attain Zenith.' From the beginning, viewers made 13WMAZ their favorite television source for news and entertainment. Today, 13WMAZ remains the most-watched television station in Central Georgia.
13WMAZ has been home to many firsts for television in Central Georgia. The station was the first in the community to broadcast in color, the first to broadcast a digital TV signal and the first to broadcast a locally-produced program in high definition.
13WMAZ has been affiliated with the CBS Television Network since the station signed on 60 years ago. In 2013, the station added The CW Network on digital channel WMAZ-13.2.
13WMAZ is owned by Gannett, Co. Inc. To learn more about Gannett and its subsidiary brands, visit www.gannett.com.
