KEC80 (sometimes referred to as Atlanta All-Hazards) is a NOAA Weather Radio station that serves the Atlanta metro area with 500 watts on 162.550MHz. Its transmitter is located east of the city atop Stone Mountain, with its radio antenna on the short tower owned by Georgia Public Broadcasting for transmitting WGTV TV 8, within state-owned Stone Mountain Park. It is programmed from the National Weather Service forecast office at Falcon Field airport in Peachtree City, which was originally at Hartsfield International Airport (now Hartsfield-Jackson) in Atlanta.

It broadcasts weather and hazard information for the following counties: Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Newton, and Rockdale. (Most are also covered by another NOAA station.) The automated system uses only the standard male synthesized voice, except for the current time, which still uses the original robotic-sounding voice instead of the very natural one used by most NOAA/National Weather Service radio stations.

Full hourly conditions are given for Atlanta only. Partial conditions (sky cover/precipitation, temperature, and wind) are given around metro Atlanta for Peachtree City, Mableton, Marietta, Kennesaw, Cartersville, Canton, Chamblee, Lawrenceville, Newnan, and Gainesville. Other reports are Rome, Dalton, Athens, Augusta, Albany, Macon, Columbus, Valdosta, Warner Robins, and Savannah in Georgia; and Chattanooga, Asheville, Greenville/Spartanburg, Birmingham, and Montgomery in surrounding states.
