After nine years at WMAR-TV, news director Gary Wordlaw is leaving to take over the news operation at WJLA-TV in Washington.
Mr. Wordlaw's last day at Channel 2 will be Oct. 23. No successor has yet been named, according to Arnold J. Kleiner, WMAR's president and general manager.
"We're going to miss him," Mr. Kleiner said, "but we're not in the habit of holding people back when they get an opportunity. And this is areal opportunity for Gary."
