CBS46 in Atlanta is launching a 9pm newscast, CBS46 News at 9, on WPCH, its sister station.
The new one-hour all local newscast will premiere on Peachtree TV on Monday October 16 and air 7 days a week.
“We know Atlanta is an early commuter market due to traffic and the 9pm News will be a great opportunity for viewers to get a complete newscast and get a full night’s rest,” said CBS46 & Peachtree TV vice-president and general manager, Mark Pimentel.
WGCL anchors Sharon Reed and Ben Swann, chief meteorologist Elle Dorsey and sports director, Fred Kalil, will be the main talent on the nightly show.
This will be the earliest newscast to air in prime time in the market.
