Old WJBF building to be demolished

The old WJBF TV studio in the 1000 block of Reynolds Street will be demolished.

According to a news story on WJBF’s Web site, the Augusta-Richmond County Historic Preservation Commission voted Thursday night to level the building that has stood there for 55 years. It has been vacant since October, when the television station moved to its new location on Augusta West Parkway.

Potential future uses for the site include a new office building, the TV station reported, and the Convention and Visitors Bureau has expressed interest in moving to the location.
