Former 11Alive reporter Keith Whitney lands at CBS46

This was posted Saturday, March 11, 2017 by Rodney Ho on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

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.
