Sally Thorner

This may not be Maryland law related but I don't care: Sally Thorner is retiring. She has been doing the news in Baltimore for 20 years. It feels like it was yesterday. The 54-year-old anchorwoman said her last day at the station will be December 18, 2009.

She's 54 and there are not a lot of female anchors past 50. Certainly makes you wonder if she is retiring or whether she is being forced out by WJZ. If the Baltimore Sun were still alive, we might find out.
