WBAL morning breaking news anchor, Megan Rivers, will join co-anchor Lacee Griffith on the anchor desk starting Monday.
The two will anchor alongside meteorologist Ava Marie and traffic reporter Chelsea Ingram weekdays from 4:30 to 7 a.m. while anchor Jason Newton will move to a permanent role as co-anchor of 11 News at 5 p.m.
“We’re excited for Megan to have a seat at the anchor desk alongside Lacee on ’11 News Today’,” said Dan Joerres, president and general manager of WBAL Baltimore. “Her focus on breaking news has proven to be an impactful addition to our ‘Live, Local, LateBreaking’ morning newscast and will continue to be an ongoing focus for 11 News Today.”
“What happens in every community matters,” said Rivers. “Being able to be one of the journalists responsible for reporting the news, be it good or challenging, is a responsibility I do not take for granted or lightly. My goal is to continue to be a trusted source for accurate, breaking news and information, for news is, in fact, the first draft of history.”
