Meredith will debut an hour evening newscast in Atlanta produced by its CBS affiliate in Atlanta on its independent outlet there.
Meredith-owned CBS affiliate WGCL Atlanta (DMA 10) is launching CBS46 News at 9 on its co-owned independent WPCH, Peachtree TV. The one-hour newscast will premiere on Monday, Oct. 16, and air seven days a week.
According to Meredith, CBS46 News at 9 on Peachtree TV will be the earliest newscast to air in primetime each night.
“We know Atlanta is an early commuter market due to traffic and the 9 p.m. news will be a great opportunity for viewers to get a complete newscast and get a full night’s rest,” said the stations’ VP-GM Mark Pimentel.
The newscast will feature co-anchors Sharon Reed and Ben Swann, Chief Meteorologist Paul Ossmann, Meteorologist Ella Dorsey and Sports Director Fred Kalil.
