Tonight we remember a broadcasting businessman.
J.B. Fuqua died Wednesday at age 87 from complications with bronchitis.
It's a rags to riches story: Fuqua made his first million starting Augusta's WJBF-TV.
He went on to turn Atlanta's Fuqua Industries into a multi-billion dollar conglomerate.
Fuqua founded WGAC radio station. He also served as a state lawmaker and chairman of the state democratic party.
