Started as WTCG, a tiny, UHF station in Atlanta, TBS grew to the point of beaming their signal to 4 cable stations back in 1975. From this, they would change their ID to TBS and become a "Superstation," the first basic cable station to send their signal all across the country. With a diversified programming schedule which leans towards sitcoms, TBS would become a household staple of American entertainment. Owner Ted Turner used the station to broadcast his Atlanta Braves baseball games, creating fans across the country. Although a local station in Atlanta, the whole USA would receive the same schedule of shows. In June of 2007, Ted Turner announced that the Atlanta version of TBS would change its call letters to WPCH-TV and will be known as Peachtree TV. The rest of the nation would still see TBS as before. TBS once aired their share of sporting events such as college football, pro wrestling, Atlanta Hawks basketball and NASCAR, but have since lost the rights and/or can be seen on their sister station TNT.
