Keith Whitney, who took an early buyout from 11Alive a year ago, has landed a job at rival station CBS46 as a general assignment reporter.
He recently changed his public Facebook page to @keithwhitneycbs46.
He had been at 11Alive for 23 years as an anchor and reporter.
Two of his colleagues who took the same buyout - Kevin Rowson and Donna Lowry - left the business and nabbed jobs rather quickly in public relations. Rowson now works as a public affairs officer at the FBI officer in Atlanta. Lowry is now the director of communications at the Cobb County school system.
CBS46 also has former Fox 5 and 11Alive meteorologist Paul Ossmann and former anchor Amanda Davis , as well as former Channel 2 Action News reporter Sally Sears on staff.
