What is Star News TV? We’re two community television stations on the North Carolina and Virginia border. With broadcasting transmitters located in Reidsville, North Carolina, and on White Oak Mountain just outside of Danville, Virginia, Star News TV brings you local programming that you want to see every day. Our daily broadcasts include local news, weather, talk shows, local comedy programs, community and regional events, religious programs, NASCAR coverage, and lots more. We bring you programming 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Our studios are located in downtown Reidsville, North Carolina (WGSR Channel 19 HD) and on Hollywood Mountain in Martinsville, Virginia (WMDV Channel 23 SD). Besides watching us over-the-air using an antenna, our programming can be found on Spectrum, Chatmoss Cable and on Comcast. AT&T UVerse customers in the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina can watch us on channel 47 in five counties. You can see the complete list below.
Star News TV started out as one small cable TV channel in Martinsville, Virginia, known as NewsChannel 18. Looking to expand into over the air broadcasting, in 2004, the company owners, Star News Corporation, purchased the former analog channel 14 in Reidsville, North Carolina. In 2009, following a mandate by the Federal Communications Commission, Star News TV converted to high definition digital broadcasting. After several frequency or channel changes ordered by the FCC, WGSR in Reidsville now operates on digital channel 19. Looking to expand even further, in 2009, the owners purchased another analog station, this one in Danville, Virginia. After converting the station to digital broadcasting, WMDV now operates on digital channel 23.
