katie syndicatedAtlanta ABC affiliate WSB will replace “Katie” with “The Dr. Oz Show” next fall, Access Atlanta reports. “Katie” will come to an end in June as Katie Couric transitions into her new role as global anchor for Yahoo!.

Mehmet Oz’s show will move to WSB from WAGA, the Fox owned station in Atlanta. Fox has not yet announced what will replace “The Dr. Oz Show,” Access Atlanta reports.

With its move to WSB, “The Dr. Oz Show” will have aired on three stations in the Atlanta market: it first debuted on NBC affiliate WXIA in 2009, then moved to WAGA in 2011.
