Netizens couldn’t help but express their sadness because Kuya Kim Atienza is no longer with the Kapamilya network.

KUYA KIM ATIENZA – People online expressed their sadness as Kuya Kim Atienza bids his goodbye in TV Patrol confirming his transfer to GMA.

In a previous article, weatherman icon Kim Atienza confirmed that a transition is real and just this Friday, true to his words, he announced his move from ABS-CBN to the GMA network. For one last time, he said his iconic “ang buhay ay weather-weather lang” line and it broke a lot of hearts.

In a heartbreaking farewell message to his former network, he thanked every person who made a huge part in his life, his co-workers, and his programs that made him the “Kuya Kim” that he is now. He also said to his supporters, “Higit sa lahat, salamat sa inyo mga Kapamilya sa pagsubaybay at pagsuporta.”

His TV Patrol fellow anchors wished him the best as he embarks on a new journey of his career. While many people are happy about his decision, there are those who got saddened as they can no longer see one of the icons of the network in his home network. However, they also understand what made him leave.

With his network’s lack of franchise for over a year now and him as a family man who has people behind him who he needs to feed and provide a good life are already acceptable reasons. Truly, anyone in his place will do the same.

Check out some comments from Twitter following his heartbreaking announcement in TV Patrol:
