Atlanta’s WSB-TV announced some personnel changes Wednesday. Traffic reporter Mike Shields will take over morning traffic duties for Heather Catlin.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Catlin will return to the news and sports departments to cover feature stories and the Georgia Bulldogs.
Catlin, who also hosts a weekend show on WSB-TV called “Hot Topics,” told the paper she was “ecstatic” about returning to cover the news.
“It was fun,” Catlin said, referring to her traffic reporting stint. Catlin began anchoring traffic last year when Mark Arum left television to host an afternoon talk show on 95.5 WSB Radio.
Shields, who joined Channel 2 Action News and WSB radio in 2018, announced on social media this morning. He will continue to do traffic for radio stations 97.1/The River and B98.5.

Christian Caldwell, 18, was the youngest of nine siblings.
Fox News political correspondent Gianno Caldwell shared some devastating news on social media as his little brother was murdered in Chicago on Friday. According to The Hill, Caldwell took to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to announce the news.
“Yesterday was the worst day of my existence,” Caldwell posted. “Never could I have imagined my baby brother’s life would be stolen from him. Please keep my family in your prayers.”
Christian Caldwell, 18, was the youngest of nine siblings. He was reportedly living on the South Side of Chicago. The website reports that Gianno stepped in as a father for his younger brothers. The children were placed in the care of their grandmother when their mother was sent away to drug treatment.
“I was like his dad because he never knew his father,” Caldwell said.
Caldwell was hired by Fox News in 2017. The political analyst also runs a bipartisan public affairs consulting firm and hosts the podcast “Outloud with Gianno Caldwell.”
Colleagues and friends reacted with tremendous sorrow. Radio host Joe Pags expressed well wishes for the Caldwell family.
Dan Bongino tweeted, “so incredibly sorry.”
CNN Reporter: Pro-life Protestors Were ‘Confrontational’ to Our Crew
CNN’s Nadia Romero criticized pro-life advocates for reportedly interrupting her live shot outside of the last clinic to provide abortions in Mississippi.
CNN National Correspondent Nadia Romero criticized pro-life advocates for reportedly interrupting her live shot outside of the last clinic to provide abortions in Mississippi. Romero was at the clinic following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The court announced its decision Friday after an unnamed source leaked its draft opinion last month.
Following the decision, abortion will likely become illegal in Mississippi in almost all cases within the next few weeks. A video posted on Mediate shows Romero’s standup guarded by a Mississippi police officer.
While reporting from the clinic at the center of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, the Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Romero claims that pro-life protestors were “threatening” and “confrontational” to her and the camera crew.
“It has not been a good morning here. It has been confrontational. It has been very threatening,” Romero said outside the last standing abortion clinic in the state following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“They want to be on TV, let’s put them on TV,” the reporter said, stepping to the side. She reported the men did not identify themselves by name or say what group they were affiliated with,” Romero added.
Jessica Tarlov, Leo Terrell Clash Over Roe v. Wade Ruling
It didn’t take long for news outlets to begin sparring on the issue, and one of the more animated ones occurred on Fox News.
On Friday, the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade, which now hands over the determination of abortion legality to individual states.
It didn’t take long for news outlets to begin sparring on the issue, and one of the more animated ones occurred on Fox News. Contributors Leo Terrell and Jessica Tarlov disputed multiple times on the topic following the ruling.
Tarlov, a Democratic strategist and co-host of The Five, said that this decision would have dire consequences, something that made Terrell shake his head and interrupt multiple times.
“Alito made it clear that he didn’t think this it would expand to contraception and same-sex marriage, but [Clarence] Thomas said he thought they should be reevaluated, and when you consider the fact that Justices [Brett] Kavanaugh and [Neil] Gorsuch lied to the senators that they met with —” Tarlov said, per Mediaite.
“They followed the law. You may not like the law, but we are a nation of laws. That’s what they did. What they basically said was if you don’t like the ruling, you go to the states,” Terrell fired back.
Tarlov and Terrell continued clashing in another segment while discussing the potential consequences.
She said “every man that takes part in conceiving a child” should be on the hook for child support, leading to Terrell shaking his head while muttering, “oh God.”
“Stop saying, ‘Oh God!’” Tarlov said.
“I can’t believe you’re using this quality time to push a democratic agenda. Go ahead. I’ll be quiet. Go ahead. Keep talking. It’s ridiculous,” Terrell snapped.
“I’m sorry. Were you pregnant recently?” Tarlov stated.
“Every time I come on this show, I’m attacked,” Terrell mumbled.
