11ALIVE beefs up Atlanta Pride presence, LGBT content
Local TV station live-streams Parade for fourth year in a row
By PATRICK SAUNDERS
There will be a familiar presence on the Atlanta Pride parade route this year, as local TV news station 11Alive airs a live stream of the parade for the fourth year in a row with a beefed up team of anchors, reporters and more, plus a float in the parade. It will be the larg- est presence the station has ever had at Pride, continuing a trend of devoting more and more coverage to issues concerning Atlanta’s LGBT community throughout the year.
This year’s three-hour live stream will be hosted by reporter and anchor Blayne Alexander and “Atlanta & Company” host Christine Pullara, who will be stationed at a booth on the parade route on Peachtree Street along with openly gay reporter Jeremy Campbell.
