WBFF (Fox45) producer Stephen Janis is leaving the Sinclair-owned Baltimore station for a job at The Real News Network.
Janis, who confirmed his departure in an email exchange, joined WBFF in 2011 and worked primarily as an investigative producer.
During that time, he won three Capitol Emmys and two AP awards.
Janis said his last day at the station is Thursday.
"I will be joining The Real News Network next Monday as an investigative journalist," Janis wrote in an email Sunday. "Fox45 was a great place to work and I will miss all of my colleagues. I think it will be a good opportunity to apply what I've learned working in a variety of mediums."
The Real News Network self-describes on its website as a "daily video-news and documentary service" based in Baltimore and Toronto.
