No city in the world has more raised its profile as a global media production capital in the last decade than Atlanta. Careers that formerly required residence in Los Angeles or New York City are now supported by a thriving arts and media scene in Atlanta, Georgia.
The city has always thrived as a regional media engine thanks to the ongoing role played by leading media enterprises like the Cox Media Group (which owns the Atlanta Journal Constitution and WSB TV and radio), Tyler Perry Studios, CNN and Turner Studios, and the Weather Channel. Today, Atlanta has emerged as a center of creativity for professionals in the music, film, design, advertising and PR, and game design industries. Georgia-lensed feature film and television productions generated an economic impact of $9.5 billion during FY 2017.
