Keith Whitney is originally from Philadelphia, where he was raised in a working class neighborhood by his grandmother, along with his two sisters.

He graduated with a Journalism degree from Penn State and spent the next couple of decades working in radio and television in the Southeast.

Keith has been in Atlanta for more than half that time, always living in the city, which he's grown to love and admire (despite the traffic, taxes, tempers, etc. He's from Philly, remember?) He believes Atlanta has really come into its own as a true International city, and he takes it as a special privilege to have reported on its growth, warts and all.
