Public Broadcasting Atlanta Taps
Atlantan Wonya Lucas as President and CEO

April 9, 2015

Following a national search, Public Broadcasting Atlanta has named Atlanta native Wonya Lucas as its next President and CEO.

We are losing one of our leading advocates for making Atlanta a center for global health and development: Helene Gayle.

Gayle has been the CEO of CARE for the past nine years. She announced in October 2014 she was leaving the international relief and poverty fighting organization this June.

As much as she loves CARE, Gayle thought it would be good for the nonprofit to have new leadership. Plus she wanted one more challenge to cap her illustrious career.

That new challenge? To become the inaugural CEO of the McKinsey Social Initiative.

Open Letter Regarding WRAS

Jul 2, 2014

TO: THE BOARD OF GEORGIA PUBLIC BROADCASTING AND THE BOARD OF REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM OF GEORGIA

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

The recent agreement between Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) and Georgia State University (GSU) regarding radio station WRAS is bad public policy—fiscally, substantively, and procedurally.  This transaction should be revisited by the parties and it should be significantly modified or rescinded.

In a World Without WABE

May 2, 2013

We asked a few of our hosts to imagine a dystopian future without WABE. What would they do then? We learned they're more suited to radio. 

Please help us keep these dark scenarios from coming to life by making your pledge of support today!

We visit the Fox Theatre, not to learn about a new production... but to see Sunshine.

Atlanta, GA – The Fox Theatre turns 80 this year... But inside, employees are busy celebrating a different milestone. Dana Goldman has the story of Patricia Sunshine Tucker.

Atlanta, GA – In the history of the NBA, no team has ever come back from being down 3 games to none in the playoffs.

It was the first time the team had even made it to the second round of the playoffs since the 90's.
Score Atlanta sports writer Scott Janovitz says that achievement could be promising for the future:

Janovitz says the Hawks must improve offensively as a team and that's the responsibility of the head coach:

Partnership with Museum of Modern Art brings masterpiece to Atlanta

All kinds of animals are raised in and around Atlanta. That includes Goats, Ostrich, Lammas and in some cases Sheep.

Atlanta, GA – Adult sheep are shorn once each year. It's the process where the wool - or fleece is cut off by a shearer. And since most Georgia farms don't raise sheep ? the art of shearing here is almost lost, but not everywhere. And certainly not on one farm just east of Atlanta in Covington.

During tough times like these? a dose of laughter can often be the best medicin, at least, a temporary fix.

Atlanta, GA – Susan Mittleman has this report on Sketchworks, Atlanta's own cutting-edge, live, sketch-comedy troupe, that may help take the edge off, as they will do nearly anything for a chuckle.
