WTGS (Fox 28) is the Fox affiliate in Savannah, Georgia. It is owned by Parkin Broadcasting. WTGS was previously owned by Bluenose Broadcasting. WTGS is licensed in Hardeeville, South Carolina, and shares a studio with the area's ABC affiliate, WJCL, which operates the station under a local marketing agreement. Its transmitter located west of Savannah near the Ogeechee River (which marks the Chatham / Bryan County line, near Fort Stewart).


The station signed on the air on September 1, 1985, as an independent station before becoming an affiliate of Fox in 1987.

Bluenose Broadcasting sold WTGS to California-based Parkin Broadcasting in May 2007 for $17.5 million. WTGS was previously owned by L.P. Media, Inc., an affiliated company of Lewis Broadcasting Corp which owned Savannah's ABC affiliate, WJCL. Since Lewis' sale of the ABC and Fox stations in 1999, the stations has been bought, sold, and refinanced twice. In fact, in the station's most recent sale in 2007, WTGS was sold for 2 million dollars less than its sale price in 1999 with WJCL. Since the time of the station's sale to L.P. Media in the early nineties, WTGS has been the sister station of WJCL. WJCL was most recently sold to New Vision Television. [http://www.broadcastingcable.com/article/CA6439370.html]
