Your turn: Your favorites in Baltimore sports talk radio

EntertainmentRadioNestor AparicioFox Broadcasting Company

Judging by the comments on David Zurawik’s posts about Mark Viviano leaving 105.7 The Fan, sports fans in Baltimore are almost as passionate about the broadcasters who cover their hometown teams as they are about the actual teams themselves. Every Baltimore broadcaster who has been in front of the camera or behind the microphone has had his or her fair share of loyal supporters -- yes, even Anita Marks.

It seems as though many of you were fond of Viviano, who left his morning show at The Fan after more than six years because he needed a break from working two jobs (he is still the sports director at WJZ). Now his co-host, Damon Yaffe? That might be another story. Yaffe is in limbo after Viviano’s resignation, and Ken Weinman and Vinny Cerrato will move from their evening spot to fill airtime from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

(This move impacts me, too, because I am a regular guest on “The Ken Weinman Show” on Wednesdays.)

Since many of you have already commented on The Fan’s lineup change, let me ask something more general about Baltimore broadcasters. I want to know who your favorite current radio hosts are, and why you pledge allegiance to their shows. Tell me your least favorites, too, because I know you are going to do it anyway.

Do you like The Fan’s big personalities? Do you prefer Rob Long and Jerry Coleman over on FOX 1370-AM? Are Nasty Nestor Aparicio and the openly-homerific guys over at WNST 1570-AM more up your alley? Or do you flip to music stations on your commute because you don’t like any local sports talk shows?

Your turn: Your take on the Baltimore sports talk radio scene?
