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.
