- This station dates back
the fall of 1988, when a construction permit was issued to Athens
Broadcasting Company, Inc., for a new low power station on channel 28,
with the W28AP call sign. After multiple extensions and
modifications, the station finally signed on in the summer of
1994. A year later, the calls changed to WTZT-LP. In 1999,
the station moved to VHF channel 11. In July 2002, the license
was transferred from Athens Broadcasting to WTZT-LP Television
Station, LLC and a few months later it was transferred again, this
time to Jamie Coover Television, Inc. In August of 2005, the
station upgraded to class A status, taking on the -CA suffix to the
call sign. The station flash cut to digital in the late spring of
2011. As of September 2015, the station is seeking to relocate
its transmitter site to Monte Santo Mountain. For more
