WTBS Began Broadcasting

Atlanta UHF television station WTCG-TV changed its call letters. Ted Turner’s channel 17 - best known for broadcasting sitcom reruns and professional wrestling - took the big step of uplinking via satellite to become “America’s Super Station” under the call letters WTBS (for Turner Broadcasting System).
