Georgia (Aug 6, 2013) — Atlanta Tech Edge will highlight the latest in technology in metro Atlanta
KENNESAW, Ga. (Aug. 6, 2013) – Kennesaw State University’s College of Science and Mathematics is a major sponsor of 11Alive’s new program, Atlanta Tech Edge. The weekly program airs on Sundays at 11 a.m. on WXIA-TV 11Alive.
Mark Anderson, dean of the College, serves on the program’s advisory board.
“As one of four title sponsors, we will also have opportunity to be on the show and highlight some of the work going on in the College. Our association with this show and the high-technology industry base should provide extensive exposure to the College, and give people another reason to discover KSU,” Anderson said.
Wes Moss hosts the program, which debuted on Aug. 4. The half-hour show highlights the latest and most exciting advancements in technology, showcasing local tech businesses and their ideas. It will offer a revealing look at the fascinating people who are making it all happen in the Atlanta area.
John Deushane, president and general manager of WXIA/WATL-TV, said: “As Atlanta is rapidly becoming the Silicon Valley of the South, it’s fitting that this burgeoning industry have its own locally produced weekly television program. Airing immediately after Meet the Press ensures its viewership will be upscale, informed and engaged. While we’re thrilled about the launch, we’re even more excited to watch it evolve over the next few months and years. Technology is never stagnant. Atlanta Tech Edge will be equally as dynamic.”
