By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Longtime WBAL investigative reporter and breaking news anchor Deborah Weiner will join Stan Stovall weeknights as the co-anchor of 6 and 11pm newscasts.

At the same time, Ashley Hinson, will join the station in Baltimore from WPTV in West Palm Beach, Florida to anchor the 5pm newscast and WBAL-TV 11 News at 10pm on MeTV with Andre Hepkins.

“We are thrilled to have Deborah join Stan Stovall at the anchor desk,” said Dan Joerres, president and general manager of WBAL-TV 11. “Her 16 years with WBAL-TV 11 as a breaking news anchor and member of the 11 News I-Team have established her as a newsroom leader, making her a great fit for this position,” he concluded.


Weiner, who is a Baltimore native, joined WBAL in 2002. She will continue in her role as an investigative reporter while taking on her new anchor duties.

She will begin her new responsibilities immediately. Hinson joins the station in July.
