Peachtree TV adds original Atlanta programs: Trina Braxton, Cristyl Kimbrough, Sasha the Diva



Starting next week, Peachtree TV is launching a major expansion of its original programming, all unscripted shows in primetime featuring or produced by Atlanta influencers or creators.

The station will also debut a revamped logo, look, feel and style.

The shows, which will air weekly at 8 p.m. on Peachtree TV, feature local talent such as former radio jock Sasha the Diva, reality star Trina Braxton and attorney Cristyl Kimbrough.

Existing shows “Atlanta Eats” with Steak Shapiro and “Monica Pearson One on One” are included in the mix as well.

These new programs arrive 15 months after Atlanta-based Gray Television purchased TV stations nationwide from Meredith Corp. including Peachtree TV (WPCH-TV) and CBS affiliate WGCL-TV, which Gray has since renamed Atlanta News First (WANF-TV).

“All these shows are Atlanta-centric,” said Erik Schrader, vice president and general manager for both stations. “All are shot in Atlanta by Atlanta people. ... It’s a sizable investment.”
