Politan said he doesn’t plan to do anything fancy on his last night with “The Late Feed” but will give his 269,000 Twitter followers and 164,000 Facebook friends a video message after Thursday night.
He joined the station in 2014 hosting a revamped morning show called "Atlanta Alive."
He moved to a special 11 p.m. news program called the "Late Feed" last year, which tried to shake up the genre with a panel discussion, fewer stories and an urgent, high-energy tone.
At first, Politan was the lead anchor on the show, but lately, Politan has become a secondary cog. Instead, Ron Jones has taken over as the lead anchor. Natisha Lance has been a co anchor.
“The Late Feed” has seen ratings fall from its previous, more traditional incarnation. The station had a 0.6 rating and a 2 share at 11 p.m. in October, same as it was a year ago and down from a 0.9 rating and 3 share in October, 2016. It finishes well behind Channel 2 Action News and Fox 5.
