Atlanta Anchor Jeff Hullinger Moves to Georgia Public Broadcasting

By Kevin Eck 

Veteran Atlanta broadcaster Jeff Hullinger is joining Georgia Public Broadcasting as executive producer for local content working across platforms.

In the press release about the move, GPB said Huffman will “shine a spotlight on often untold stories and unique lived experiences throughout the state.”

Hullinger started working in Atlanta in 1984 after starting his career at KOAA in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Most recently, he served as an anchor for NBC affiliate WXIA, where he spent 14 years.


“I’ve had a front row seat to news and sports and everything in between for the last 40 years that I’m grateful for,” said Hullinger. “It really matters to me that people know about and understand where they live. I love this state so much. I’m looking forward to my beginnings at GPB and doing those things that are near to my heart.”

“At GPB, we’re leaning into our role as a cultural touchstone for Georgia,” said Georgia Public Broadcasting president and CEO Bert Wesley Huffman. “The intersection of our skills and our mission is unique and often untold Georgia stories. While Jeff has had a long and successful career in commercial journalism, he seems to have hit his truest stride in telling just these kinds of stories. I’m excited to give him a larger platform to share them with all of Georgia, reminding us all where we came from and where we’re going. That’s GPB.”
