Baltimore's WVIE Dropping Local Sports Talk

Moving to news/talk format weekdays starting July 4

Three local sports talk show hosts -- Stan "The Fan" Charles, Jerry Coleman and Rob Long -- will be without a home at radio station 1370 AM WVIE as of Friday morning when the station starts moving to a mainly all-news format.  The station will be using daytime blocks of TRN-distributed America’s Radio News Network.

According to a story by David Zurawik at The Baltimore Sun, the official move by V-1370 to news/talk won't come until July 4th when it goes to 12-hours-a-day Monday-through-Friday programming from America's Radio News, a news service based out of Alexandria, Va., that is carried on more than 100 stations nationally.

The station will have local news, weather, traffic and sports provided by its Maryland News Center.  The format is expected to be branded as "all news all day," in synergy with sister station, WCBM (680 AM), a conservative talk outlet.
