Tegna’s Atlanta-based talk show Sister Circle will end its run on April 24 after nearly three seasons.
What We Know:
- The show, which airs locally on WATL-TV at 10 a.m. weekdays and on TV One nationally at noon debuted in 2017, is the only talk show of its kind based out of Atlanta. It has an all-Black woman cast and competes with shows such as The Talk on CBS and The Real, seen in Atlanta on Fox 5 (WAGA-TV).
- Originally anchored by Atlanta veteran media personality Rashan Ali at the helm. Other panelists were R&B singer Syleena Johnson, Married to Medicine cast member Quad Webb and comedienne Kiana Dancie. Trina Braxton (Braxton Family Values) recently joined the cast, replacing Dancie in the show’s second season.
- The company released a statement noting that “while there are many loyal fans of the show, the show has not grown its audience enough to continue”.
“All of the ladies have a spiritual center about them, I feel like that this was a divine power that brought us together. This show is not only going to be fun and entertaining, but it will provoke thought. It will be relevant and relatable not just to women of color but all women.” – Helen Swenson, Executive Producer
- Ali, who started her media career under the tutelage of Ryan Cameron (who just had emergency surgery), said in a text that “it was a privilege to have this opportunity. I am so proud of the show and want to thank my co-hosts, our production team and our Sister Circle family for making an indelible impact in media.”
This show had a good run. To be honest, it lasted longer than we expected it to.
