WBAL Anchor Stepping Down after More than Thirty Years at Station

By Kevin Eck 

Two weeks from today, after more than 30 years with the Baltimore NBC affiliate, WBAL anchor Rod Daniels will anchor his last show at 6:00 p.m.

“It’s not often a news anchor can claim more than three decades of service to a single television station,” said WBAL president and gm Dan Joerres. “Rod has made significant contributions to both our station and to the city of Baltimore. He’ll always be a respected member of our WBAL-TV family.”

Daniels joined WBAL in 1984. He started his career as a weekend sports anchor at WIS in Columbia, S.C. He’s also worked at WTAE in Pittsburgh, Penn. and WISN in Milwaukee.


“I am grateful to WBAL-TV, and our parent company Hearst Television, for trusting me with carrying the banner of Channel 11 for more than three decades,” said Daniels. “I will cherish the time I spent with some amazing co-workers. I would especially like to thank our viewers for their loyalty over the years. Their support is the reason for my success.”
