The Atlanta Journal-Constitution¬†has hired acclaimed Georgia broadcaster Bill Nigut to co-host Politically Georgia alongside the AJC’s award-winning team of Greg Bluestein, Patricia Murphy and new co-host, AJC Washington Correspondent, Tia Mitchell. The show will expand to five days a week.

Nigut has been an icon in local broadcasting for decades, a familiar face and voice to Georgians for his political coverage. For 20 years, he served as the national and state political reporter for WSB-TV, the Atlanta ABC affiliate, where he covered five presidential campaigns, the White House and Capitol Hill, as well as Georgia politics.

In 2004, Nigut left WSB to become the CEO of Metro Atlanta Arts and Culture Coalition, before taking the Southeast regional director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) role in 2007. He received the Georgia Commission on The Holocaust Humanitarian Award in 2013, given to those who have “demonstrated the spirit of humanity through volunteer work, advocacy, leadership and/or philanthropy.”

For the past nine years, Nigut has hosted GPB’s “Political Rewind,” a program he created that regularly featured guests discussing state and national political stories. He also hosted a second GPB show, “Two Way Street,” a long-form conversation program with artists, authors, chefs and scientists, among others. In 2021 he was inducted into the Georgia Association of Broadcaster’s Hall of Fame for “career achievement and the lasting impact on Georgia’s broadcasting industry.”
