Heather Catlin goes back to her regular ‘good news,’ entertainment, Bulldogs duties

Mike Shields today officially takes over WSB-TV morning traffic from Heather Catlin.

Shields, who joined Channel 2 Action News and WSB radio in 2018, made the announcement on social media this morning. He will continue to do traffic for radio stations 97.1/The River and B98.5.

He also celebrated the arrival of his first child, a boy named Jacob, last Friday.

Catlin, who joined WSB-TV in 2009, originally took over traffic for Mark Arum in August. Arum at the time decided to end his long-time split shift and focus exclusively on his afternoon radio show on news/talk 95.5/750 WSB.

News director Suzanne Nadell said Catlin will return to reporting including features in the morning and the Georgia Bulldogs. She has also been a long-time host of the weekly entertainment news show “Hot Topics,” which airs Saturday nights at 11:35 p.m.

Catlin was on vacation earlier this month and took a few extra days after contracting a mild case of COVID-19, she said in a text.

“I feel ecstatic,” Catlin said. “It was fun but my passion is good news.”
