Athens News Matters
Fridays at 1PM, Saturdays at 10AM and Sundays at Noon.

For over 15 years, Athens News Matters has been a vehicle to connect listeners with the stories that matter from Athens and around Northeast Georgia. In July 2019, the program was relaunched in a new format, an hour of content, including the panel of commentators which has been a mainstay of Athens News Matters, but adding more stories, features, interviews, and more.

In the past two years, Athens News Matters has received multiple awards for excellence in journalism from the Georgia Association of Broadcasters and the Public Media Journalists Association.
