GWCCA Partners with WSB-TV For Live Broadcast of Georgia Dome Implosion

ATLANTA –  (Oct. 31) – In response to an outpouring of interest from around the country to view the Nov. 20 demolition of the Georgia Dome, the Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA) has partnered with ABC affiliate WSB-TV to make the event available to as many Georgians – and dome fans around the world – as possible. Due to the required restricted zone around the Georgia Dome – and accompanying road closures – there will not be a public viewing area available. WSB’s wide reach, paired with its large variety of digital viewing options, ensures viewers everywhere can take part in this historic event.  “Out of an abundance of caution, we are asking the community for their support in ensuring roadways around the campus are as clear as possible,” said Frank Poe, executive director of the GWCCA. “Detour routes around the 220-acre campus will reroute traffic away from the Georgia Dome and out of viewable range.” The implosion is set for 7:30 a.m. on Nov. 20. WSB-TV’s live viewing options include: The event will also be live streamed on the following platforms: GWCCA has a long history with WSB-TV’s local programming team who has broadcast the annual 4th of July Celebration in Centennial Olympic Park for the past five years.
