The A List with Alison Lebovitz


Produced locally by WTCI-TV (PBS), The A List with Alison Lebovitz is an engaging one-on-one weekly interview series that features local and national personalities. "I like to say this show isn't issue driven, it's people driven," said Alison Lebovitz, host of the show. "It's about sitting down with fascinating individuals and getting to know them, one on one, up close and personal. And hopefully the viewers will get to see what I have seen - a unique look into the lives of some very unique people."

"WTCI is committed to offering unique local programming because, as a PBS station, our connection within the community is what makes us different and vital to the members who support us," said Paul Grove, President & CEO of WTCI-TV (PBS). "The A List with Alison Lebovitz is an exciting weekly series that invites viewers to listen in on conversations with creative and engaging individuals who have made an impact locally and nationally."

The A List with Alison Lebovitz airs weekly on Thursday nights at 8:30 pm.
