CBS 46 WGCL-TV Atlanta is Rebranding as “Atlanta News First” WANF-TV

The Atlanta area CBS affiliate known as CBS 46 WGCL-TV and sister station Peachtree TV WPCH-TV are rebranding their newscasts to become Atlanta News First. WGCL will change call letters to become WANF-TV.

The news comes less than a year after Atlanta based Gray Television finalized its purchase of Meredith Corporation’s 17 stations. It's Gray's first time owning a station in Atlanta in 28 years. Since then, Gray has added more than 50 jobs at WGCL-WPCH in news, marketing, technology and sales—and said it is still hiring.

In the press release announcing the move, VP and GM Erik Schrader said the following:

“The people of Northern Georgia deserve a better, community-focused local news service on all platforms,” said Schrader. “This is the start of something new that will benefit Atlanta and its surrounding communities for years to come.”

“Atlanta News First is a commitment to Atlanta and the people who make this such an incredible place to live,” said news director Kim Saxon. “We aim to empower our audience every day through impactful local journalism, reliable weather and traffic—and a connection to our community. We believe in celebrating what is great about our city, and we are invested in doing our part to make it better.” 

For some reason this new branding reminds us of a logo we've seen before...
