Una nang napabalita ang paglipat niya sa GMA-7 at mas lalong umugong ang balitang ito nang kumalat na rin sa social media ang ilang larawan at video ng unang shoot niya para sa isang programa sa kabilang istasyon.
Sa kanyang pagpapapaalam, pinasalamatan siya ng ABS-CBN na anging tahanan niya sa loob ng 17 taon.
Narito ang official statement ng network hinggil dito.
“Today (October 1), Kim Atienza bid goodbye to the viewers of ‘TV Patrol’ after many years of delivering the nightly weather news.
“No doubt, Kuya Kim has become an iconic name on Philippine television just like his predecessor in our primetime newscast, the late Ernie Baron.
“For 17 years, he shared knowledge and wonder to our viewers, as well as the many young Filipinos who grew up watching and learning from him in ‘Matanglawin.
“We thank him for his dedication, passion, and most of all, service to the Filipino people. All the best, Kuya Kim!”
Maliban sa TV Patrol ay naging ‘iconic’ rin ang programang Matanglawin na humakot ng napakaraming awards sa telebisyon.
Naging bahagi rin si Kuya Kim ng ABS-CBN noontime show na It’s Showtime bilang isa sa mga original hosts nito.

TV Patrol's farewell to Kuya Kim was a tear-jerker.
Must be really hard to leave a network that served as home, because as we always say, in ABSCBN, we're all treated as family. All the best, @kuyakim_atienza!

I grew up watching Ka Ernie Baron 🕊 and saying “Kapag walang knowledge, walang power!” And now, to end another milestone in the Weather News Forecast, Kuya Kim Atienza with his famous line “Ang buhay ay weather, weather lang” makes me emo 😭 https://t.co/xsGXJ8TY25

Kuya Kim leaving TV Patrol gave the same feeling I had when Noli de Castro left the show when he decided to run for VP. He'll come back soon. It is not like Ernie Baron retiring and making way for Kuya Kim Atienza. That said, who will fill in those boots?
