WRDW Becomes First Augusta Station to Broadcast News in HD

On Monday, CBS-affiliate WRDW became the first station in Augusta to broadcast its newscasts in HD.

“I am proud we are the first to serve Augusta’s news viewers in HD,” said John Ray, WRDW’s president and general manager. “We are committed to bringing our viewers the quality only high definition television can offer.”

In August, WRDW paved the way for the change when it began to broadcast its newscasts in the HD-friendly 16:9 aspect ratio. In the coming months, the station plans to also begin broadcasting all of its syndicated programming and commercials in HD.

Ever the local trailblazer, WRDW was also the first Augusta station to broadcast in color.
