WJZ fires Dennis Edwards

December 2010 Update: Click here to read more about Dennis Edwards being arrested for domestic violence.


A source tells DCRTV that the axe came down today at CBS’s Channel 13/WJZ in Baltimore. Longtime reporter Dennis Edwards was shown the door. Apparently, all the locks were changed at the station last week, we’re told.

    Your headline is misleading and inaccurate. Edwards was bought out like 10 to 15 other former wjz employees.
    As for the locks. They were not changed. Overnight producers have been complaining for a long time that the electronic lock system didn’t work. Management simply made sure one or two were working. Their actions were in response to those concerns. They had nothing to do with Edwards buyout.

    Dennis Edwards preached at my church several years ago. He never gave me the impression that he was a true 'Man of God'. I don't remember his message, but I do recall that he did not seem to be knowledgable of the Bible as he fumbled through the pages to find certain scriptures. I believe we are experiencing a season of time where God is exposing ministers who pretend to be Godly, only to discover that they are not what they present themselves to be.

    Please understand that he is that just a "Man" I think many people elevate certain persons to a higher level than they deserve when a "Man" preaches. I am sure he was fumbling through the BIBLE as many do (if they even touch the BIBLE at all), the most utilized book in the church is the song book anyways whereas the BIBLE looks clean, crisp and untouched. This does not give Dennis Edwards a lesson because as a christian you are "not to judge" although it is easy to judge this man now because everyone is. Look at yourself also because if you know about this "season of time" Instead of you waiting for these potentially false prophets to read the BIBLE to you and trust in these "Men" maybe you should read it directly for yourself instead of exposing yourself to possible counterfeit words from these foretold false prophets that would be rising up in one place after another?
