Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

WSST-TV's digital transmitter facilities had operated at low power for several years, due to Sunbelt-South Telecommunications, Ltd. being involved in bankruptcy proceedings.[needs update][2] The station discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over UHF channel 55, on April 15, 2009. The station's digital signal broadcasts on its pre-transition UHF channel 51.[3][4]


Syndicated programs broadcast on WSST-TV include Extra, The Better Show, Entertainment Tonight, The People's Court, and Family Feud.

WSST produces South Georgia Sunrise a 2½ hour morning news and talk program, airing weekdays at 4:00 a.m. and a half-hour late afternoon newscast at 4:00 p.m. The station also produces Midday Magazine, an hour-long talk and lifestyle program that airs weekdays at 10:00 a.m.
