To settle a family debate, is WECT-TV anchor Frances Weller married?

John Peaspanen

Frances Weller

 To get the answer, we asked the WECT-TV anchor and Wilmington native.

“To answer the reader’s question … I am engaged, “said Frances Weller. “His name is Joe Durham. And I’m a lucky girl. He’s a great guy.”

According to Weller’s WECT profile, she has been with the station since 1982. After three years as a general assignment reporter, Weller was named co-anchor of WECT’s 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. news programs. She is also the anchor for the 5 p.m. WECT broadcast.

Weller has a twin sister, Margaret Weller Stargell, who also resides in Wilmington and is president and CEO of Coastal Horizons Center Inc.

    Just curious – was Frances Wilmington’s first African American female news anchor? I can’t think of one before her.
