Lisa Napoli writes in and asks ……

I came to your site to answer a question for a book I’m writing about Channel 17/WTCG/WTBS and Ted Turner.


I’m trying to figure out exactly when GCW moved into the 1050 Techwood Drive building that CNN launched out of on June 1, 1980.


I am sure one of your members will know the answer—or perhaps, you do?

Gratefully, Lisa

According to Wikipedia, GCW moved to WTCG in 1972. The station had been operating out of the Techwood Drive studios since 1970.

Actually the wiki article on GCW is a good place to start for info on that period of the early 70's when the move occurred and the whole "Atlanta wrestling war" with Ann Gunkel and the NWA from '72 to '74 happened.

I've looked in the archives of the then Atlanta Constitution and the move to the new Techwood Drive headquarters occurred roughly in late May and early June of 1980. The relocation of WTBS and the greater Turner Broadcasting Group happened in stages.
