Did you know that Atlanta News Channel 2 has been broadcasting since 1948? It is the second oldest station south of DC. For as long as records have been kept, Channel 2 has led the Atlanta News ratings. Both on air and online, Atlanta News Channel 2 remains one of the key places that residents get their local news info. Here are some of the latest and most interesting stories the channel has covered.

1. News Channel 2 Atlanta was one of the first stations to announce that the Atlanta Zoo has confirmed, via its veterinary staff, that its 15 year old giant panda, Lun Lun, is expecting another cub. Pandas are notoriously slow breeders, and this birth marks the first panda to be born in the US this year.

2. In Cobb County, investigators are checking out the claim that there have been five firefighters and a policemen who have distributed or consumed non prescription steroids. The Spokesman for the county, Robert Quibley, told Channel 2 News Atlanta that the inquiry was led by the department itself in order to ensure that country employees were upholding the standards expected by their positions. Apparently, some of them were not.

3. Police think that a single group of men are targeting and breaking into cars at schools, the Fernback Museum, and daycares in Dekalb county. Victims contacted by Atlanta Channel 2 News have reported being disturbed by the crimes. One woman was only picking up her son from daycare, and her car was robbed in under ten minutes. Originally the crimes were suspected to be unrelated, but investigators now believe there is a single group of men behind all this, since a black Grand Prix was seen leaving every crime scene.
