WHLC-TV was the target of an attack on April 28, 2015 during the Baltimore riots, wherein rioters destroyed the studio building's equipment and set the news set on fire. 4 of WHLC's staff were injured and 8 were killed in the melee. By August 2016, 500 persons involved in the attack on WHLC had been arrested, some of them being sentenced to life in prison (one of the rioters was extradited to his native Canada to stand trial for the murder of an A&W manager in Manitoba, and was sentenced to death).

With the assistance of Maryland Public Television and master control from Boston sister station WBOR-TV, the station returned to the air on May 3, 2015 from temporary facilities at MPT's Owings Mills studio. At times, WBOR and New York City RKO affiliate WRKO-TV provided assistance with weather graphics and master control.

In July 2016, WHLC moved to it's new studio facilities at 9051 Red Branch Road in Columbia, Maryland. The station's new space includes two news studios, a bigger control room, an open collaboration space for all content producing departments, technical operations, and sales & executive offices.
