HBCU Grad Purchased a TV Station in Georgia; Started With Only a Cell Phone and Facebook Live

Once an intern, April Ross now owns the very news station she worked at. Her latest venture to report news began after college when she went live from her cell phone to stream shocking news.

Recent communications grad, April Ross bought WJCN TV-33 this past May. Based in LaGrange, Georgia, the station is live on air through Spectrum, 24/7 throughout hundreds of thousands of households and broadcasted in 11 counties located in both West Georgia and East Alabama. Ross majored in communications and obtained her industry experience as an entry-level behind-the-scenes production assistant.
