If you look to the left in our video vault, you’ll see the auditions and “getting to know” segments for our three contestants from Friday’s “Coors Light King of Baltimore Sportstalk” competition. Barry Barnes, Justin Keys and Geoff Peckham made it through their “five minutes of fame” and are now actively blogging in the module below our main blogosphere.

All of our participants have been writing about the Orioles, the Stanley Cup, the Blast, the Masters, the NFL Draft and other topics with great verve here at I sincerely hope you read some of their work and vote for your favorites later in the week.

We’ve had a few contestants drop out of the competition and a few more enter over the weekend. Here is the updated schedule of appearances this week:

MONDAY: Neal Bortmes (2:15), Rick Crabbe (2:30), Andrew Frank (2:45), Luke Jones (3:15), Bryan Knouse (5:45)

TUESDAY: Chris Allsep (2:15), Nick Miskelly (2:30), Jeremiah Moyer (2:45), Todd Salkowski (3:00), Phil Williams (3:15), Chris Russo (3:30), Jay Trucker (3:45)

WEDNESDAY: Christina Tarleton (2:15), Tom Clayton (2:30), Marco Romanell (3:00), Ryan Sebring (3:15), Chris Stoner (3:30), John McKay (3:45)

THURSDAY: Mike Williams (2:15), Lawson Lambert (2:30), Vic Ganderson (2:45), Brian Swoboda (3:00), Jack Gilden (3:15),

FRIDAY:  Ken Phillips (2:45), Rick Moore (3:00) and Francis Lucia (3:30). We’ll also welcome Peter Dilutis (2:15) and Troy Shuman (2:30), who are not “participating” in the competition due to the age requirement but will be blogging and visiting to show their media prowess.

I’ll be writing more every day about the competition and we hope you hold Wednesday, May 13 (Donna’s Tavern in Dundalk) and Wednesday, May 27 (Padonia Station in Timonium) for our “live show” semifinals and finals.

It’s going to be a fun week of meeting new people and hearing new prospects for the future of Baltimore sports media.
