Athens, Ohio.

Home to Ohio University and so much more.

And with recent road improvements, Athens is closer than ever!

During the month of August, TheNewsCenter will focus on Athens County and all that is has to offer just a short distance from the Mid-Ohio Valley.

From August 8-12, we’ll broadcast live from the Athens County Fair and the 70th Jamboree of the King Midget automobile, which used to be manufactured in Athens!

And we’ll go elsewhere, too!

Those live broadcasts will be seen on WTAP News at Five and WTAP News at Six all that week.

The logos you see on this page represent the businesses who are helping to make this Athens County coverage possible.

You can CLICK on them to learn more about each one.

And you can see commercials from these and other Athens County businesses starting August 1st on our TV stations:

  • WTAP-NBC
  • WIYE-CBS
  • WOVA-FOX
  • WIYE-D2 MeTV/MyNetwork

In case you miss any of our live broadcasts, you can see them right here, shortly after they occur.

TheNewsCenter presents… YOUR TOWN: ATHENS COUNTY.

If you haven’t been to Athens for a while, you won’t want to miss this special coverage!
