Veteran investigative reporter Jayne Miller will retire from WBAL-TV, the station announced Wednesday.
Miller, who joined WBAL in August 1979 as a general assignment reporter, is currently a reporter with the station’s investigative reporting team. She will retire at the end of July.
“Jayne embodies the best skills needed to be a successful investigative journalist and ranks amongst the best in the country. She’s tenacious, curious, courageous, and logical, and truly cares about the viewers she serves with her reporting. Her passion for accountability and fact-based journalism are second to none. Our team of journalists is better for having worked with Jayne,” Dan Joerres, president and general manager of WBAL, said in a news post from the station. “She will certainly be missed within the walls of WBAL-TV.”
Miller has received many awards for her work, including the Radio Television Digital News Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award this year.
“The way that I have tried to be through my entire career, what I’ve tried to be is fair,” Miller said in an interview. “And I hope, at the end of the day, that’s how people remember me — is that I’ve really tried to be fair.”
Miller said she hopes to travel and engage in political advocacy in her retirement.
