Meredith will debut an hour evening newscast in Atlanta produced by its CBS affiliate in Atlanta on its independent outlet there.
‘CBS46 News At 9’ To Air On WPCH Atlanta
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.
