A regular on one of the cable news channels is leaving his network to join an Atlanta TV station. TVNewser reports that HLN host Vinnie Politan is headed to NBC affiliate WXIA-TV.
Politan currently hosts “HLN Now: On the Case,” which airs weekdays from 2-5 p.m. He previously worked on other HLN shows including “Prime News” and “After Dark.”
His last day at the cable channel will be July 3.
“Politan’s departure is the latest shakeup to HLN, which has seen lots of change over the past several months. Under Albie Hecht’s leadership, the network has rebranded itself as the television home for the social media generation,” the story notes.
