WFXG is the Fox-affiliated television station for Augusta, Georgia. It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 31 from a transmitter southeast of Beech Island, South Carolina along U.S. 278. Owned by Southeastern Media Holdings, the station is operated by Raycom Media through a shared services agreement. WFXG has studios on Washington Road (a.k.a. GA 104) in the Lamkin section of Martinez although its address says Augusta. Syndicated programming on the station includes: Friends, The Office, Two and a Half Men, and The Dr. Oz Show. They offer This TV on a second digital subchannel which has yet to be seen on Comcast or Knology digital cable. The station was launched on May 23, 1991 and replaced WBEK as the area's Fox affiliate.

Newscast

In 2004, WFXG started airing a nightly 10 o'clock newscast produced by ABC affiliate WJBF. This broadcast originates from facilities on Reynolds Street in downtown Augusta. It uses different graphics and logos concealing those of WJBF. From its start, the broadcast competed with cable-only WB affiliate "WBAU". That station aired prime time news on weeknights which was produced by NBC affiliate WAGT. This production ended in April 2008. Although WJBF and WAGT entered into joint sales and shared services agreements, they will continue to produce the 10 P.M. news for WFXG. [1]
