ATLANTA - Channel 2 WSB-TV is excited to start an all new series of Family 2 Family specials called “Georgia GameChangers.”
The new show will introduce inspiring local people improving Atlanta and North Georgia.
These game changers are re-writing history, challenging the rules and going after big dreams.
WHAT: Georgia GameChangers
WHO: Channel 2 anchors Justin Farmer and Jovita Moore
WHERE: Channel 2 WSB-TV
WHEN: Wednesday at 8 p.m.
Channel 2’s Jovita Moore talks with Ryan Gravel, the man who conceived of The Beltline which is based on his graduate work at Georgia Tech. In the beginning, Gravel never imagined the Beltline would be built. He describes how the project took off and how the Beltline movement began.
Channel 2’s Justin Farmer walks under an acre of solar panels right here in Georgia and shows how one Georgia organization is turning university inventions into a booming business. Viewers will also meet an inspiring woman who developed local camps to help kids at risk.
Channel 2’s Fred Blankenship brings to light the story of the Rev. Dr. Diane Parrish, who has given hundreds of children leadership skills and more importantly, hope. Her camp is not only fun, but it helps students find jobs and become game changers themselves.
Then, Channel 2’s Linda Stouffer has the fascinating story of a Georgia State University professor, Dr. Stuart Jeffries, who travels to the South Pole to study the sun. Jeffries describes living in the harsh conditions and why his research is changing what we know about one of the brightest stars in our galaxy.
“Channel 2, through our long running Family 2 Family project, is committed to bringing Georgians programs that support the community,” said Tim McVay, Vice President and General Manager of Channel 2 WSB-TV. “We invite local viewers to watch our new primetime special ‘Georgia GameChangers’ and get inspired by people who live right here in our hometown. They show us all how we, too, can make a difference.”
Every single day there are people in Georgia who are working to make our community, our nation and our world a better place.
