WGCL Atlanta Embraces Change In A Big Way

Meredith Corp., which owns the Atlanta CBS affiliate, has found nothing remotely close to stability in its efforts over the past 16 years to dig the station out of the ratings basement. But new GM Mark Pimentel and News Director Larry Perret have revamped the station in a way that nobody in local TV news has seen before in such a short time. Today, the station introduces an almost entirely new anchor lineup. In recent months, it has brought in a new chief meteorologist, revived its sports department, revamped its digital group, hired new producers and introduced a raft of new reporters. Virtually the only department that went relatively unscathed was its camera crew.
