Rick Folbaum has left CNN, joined CBS46

CNN International weekend anchor Rick Folbaum, who has been freelancing with the network for almost a year, has left. Folbaum was anchoring for CNN from Atlanta at the CNN Center.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, he is joining CBS46 Atlanta as their lead anchor for the evening news, fronting the 4pm, 6pm and 11pm newscasts. He is filling the shoes of former cable news anchor Thomas Roberts, who just left the station.

“I am thrilled to be joining the great team of journalists at CBS46,” Folbaum said in a press release. “I can’t wait to get to work.”

Steve Doerr, the news director at CBS46, praised Folbaum’s “decades of network and large market anchoring experience. He’ll do a terrific job.”

Wasting no time, he begins next week.
