It didn't take long for WKBW-TV (Channel 7) sports anchor Shawn Stepner to land a job in his hometown area.
Stepner, who announced he was leaving earlier this week, is joining WMAR-TV in Baltimore as a sports reporter.
Like WKBW, WMAR is an E.W. Scripps station.
Stepner's last day at Channel 7 is expected to be Aug. 10 and he will start his new job on Aug.15.
He will cover the Baltimore Ravens, who open the regular season Sept. 11 against the Buffalo Bills.
"We are thrilled he was able to stay in the Scripps family and know he will make a major impact at WMAR," said Channel 7 General Manager Michael Nurse.
