ATLANTA, Aug. 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The first episode of a new national TV show called "Coffee with America" is debuting on Tuesday, September 1, and is now available online at www.coffeewithamerica.com. The show is available in 180 TV markets through the YouToo America network, on major cable providers like Comcast and Time Warner and on local affiliates like WAGA-TV Fox 5 Atlanta.
"Coffee With America" features two experienced and talented hosts, Ebony Steele and Sasha Rionda. Steele is best known for her work on Fox TV's Dish Nation! and radio's The Rickey Smiley Morning Show. Rionda has hosted shows on both CNN International and CNN Espanol.
Steele is quite possibly one of the most prolific personalities in entertainment today. She has been named as one of Radio Facts' Top 30 Women in Media alongside Oprah, Wendy Williams and Soledad O'Brien. Sasha Rionda is perhaps most recognized for hosting "The Music Room" on CNN International, where she interviewed top recording artists like Britney Spears, Usher and Moby.
"Coffee with America" will be the first major TV series for the new Atlanta Broadcast Studio, located near Vinings. Atlanta Broadcast Studio is a state-of-the-art facility built specifically for live TV production and broadcasting.
The production team for "Coffee with America" will be led by Ben Garrett (Lifetime, CNBC). Garrett and the Atlanta Broadcast Studio team members have launched successful programming for Lifetime, CNBC, RLTV and Health Media Network, among others. Meredith Callan will lead brand integration for the new show; she held a similar position with Mojo Brands Daily Buzz and Emotional Mojo until their recent cancellation. Ashley Smith, formerly of The Weather Channel, is the Executive Producer.
