ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - WPCH Peachtree TV is rolling out new, locally produced entertainment programming to Atlanta viewers.
Beginning on Sunday, March 26, 2023, the 8-9pm time period will become home to unscripted shows featuring or produced by Atlanta influencers and creators.
In addition, the station will debut a new look, feel and style, complete with a refresh of the iconic street sign logo.
You can take a sneak peek at the fantastic new graphics and design coming to Peach in March here.
The move comes just over one year after Gray Television, headquartered in Atlanta, completed the purchase of WANF (formerly WGCL), WPCH and Meredith’s other television stations.
It also follows the promotion of long-time station employee Micheal Smith to Station Manager.
“Peachtree TV is a well-recognized brand in Atlanta, and has been for years,” said Vice President & General Manager Erik Schrader. “Now we have the opportunity to do what local broadcasters should be doing: locally produced shows for local viewers. This is the ultimate opportunity to give Atlanta viewers Atlanta shows made by Atlanta people.” “We hope to create a sense of community among content creators, and provide some fun, engaging entertainment to keep Atlanta smiling. To that end, we’ve tapped some well-known talent and influencers in the city to be a part of the new landscape that we are creating at Peachtree TV. Names like Trina Braxton, Sasha the Diva, Killer Mike and Symphony Thompson and so many others are a part of these projects. This is just the beginning for Peachtree TV,” said Peachtree TV Station Manager Micheal Smith.
