ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Sen. Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock) is stepping down from the Georgia State Senate to accept a position with Georgia Public Broadcasting.

Earlier today, Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) announced a new programming initiative that will examine current economic development trends and spotlight job creating companies throughout the state.

Rogers is spearheading the initiative, beginning with a statewide weekly radio program examining current economic development trends and highlighting companies that are growing and creating jobs.

"The opportunity to help lead Georgia Public Broadcasting is like a dream come true in many respects. The incredible team put together by Director Ryan is among the best in broadcasting. I really look forward to joining their efforts," said Rogers in a statement.

Rogers will be stepping down from the Georgia General Assembly on Dec. 5, where he has served since 2002.

The initiative will begin in January 2013, and the radio program will debut in the spring.
