Former WBFF Reporter Melinda Roeder Gets New Gig at WGCL

By Aneya Fernando 

Melinda-RoederReporter Melinda Roeder has found herself a new home after being fired from Baltimore Fox affiliate WBFF in December.

Roeder was terminated from her position after an erroneous report about a Washington protest was aired.

In the report, Roeder said that protesters were chanting “kill a cop” when they were actually chanting, “We won’t stop. We can’t stop, ’til killer cops are in cell blocks.” The station later issued an apology for the error.

Roeder told The Baltimore Sun in December that WBFF had “terminated [her] contract without cause.”

Well, it looks like Roeder has bounced back just fine. Next week, she begins her new gig at CBS affiliate WGCL in Atlanta.

“I’m excited to be working in a top 10 market, but most importantly, I will be working again for a general manager that I worked for years ago in Lexington, Kentucky,” Roeder told The Sun. “He’s obviously familiar with my work and work ethic.”
