WSAV is the NBC & CW affiliate for Coastal Empire and the Lowcountry.  We signed on the air on February 1, 1956, and have faithfully served Savannah, Statesboro, Hilton Head and our many neighboring Georgia and South Carolina communities with the best in local news and entertainment. 

WSAV’s unique brand of On Your Side journalism has made it the area’s most critically and professionally acclaimed local news operation. Since 2012, WSAV has been recognized for superior journalism with 27 regional Edward R.

WSAV serves the community as a watchdog and community champion, giving voices to the voiceless.  This kind of connection is only made possible by the development of strong relationships our news team has fostered in both the Savannah newsroom as well our five news bureaus: Bluffton, S.C., Statesboro, Ga., Atlanta, Columbia, S.C. and Washington D.C.
