WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 13 – Finding the next Baltimore sports media kings by contesting

While there were more than 1,000 applicants over several years of audition tapes, resumes, interns, producers, gophers and wannabes, we knew back in 2008 that Luke Jones was the real deal when he rolled in sporting that Haloti Ngata jersey, a stocked notebook and showed he was far more serious than anyone we’d ever met then – or since!

WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 15 – The night Deion Sanders made Parkville “Primetime” with Ravens fans

We’re still in the process of trying to recover the actual two-hour interview from Putty Hill Station in November 2004, but we remember this is the night that “Prime” rolled into Parkville with then-backup quarterback Kordell “Slash” Stewart (one-time star of the Pittsburgh Steelers) to make it a Hall of Fame evening for Ravens fans.

WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 16 – The epic Pittsburgh Purple Pep Rallies and Parties

Nestor remembers the Pittsburgh hotel manager howling when the Baltimore AM sports radio wackjob guy told her he was gonna bring a thousand people in purple to her fancy corporate wedding ballroom for four hours to drink beer and prepare to eliminate the Steelers from the AFC Championship Game. The game didn’t go well in 2009 or 2011 but we threw a helluva party up there with ‘yins. Our WNST Roadtrips could affect everything but the outcome for #RavensFlock.

Tooten discusses his Deep South journey and state of education and race in America

Dr. Tim Tooten is no stranger to Baltimore citizens. The longtime education reporter at WBAL-TV and pastor of Harvest Christian Ministries joined us during the early days of COVID in June 2020 to tell us about his journey from the Suwannee River near Gainesville, Florida to Baltimore and what he has learned about people. A very compelling conversation with a Baltimore education reporting legend, who just retired from his work as a local journalist.

WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 25 – Showing Baltimore our signs of life

If you are familiar with the beginnings of WNST, it probably came back on that first kickoff at Memorial Stadium on September 1, 1996 when the Baltimore Ravens were born and our DUMP TRUMPY placards made national news after NBC broadcaster Bob Trumpy wished the Charm City empty roads, warm beer and cold hot dogs. And of course, the GET NASTY flip sides took off and launched what would become WNST-AM 1570 on August 3, 1998. We will countdown our WNST Top 25 “Stories of Glory” every week through the football season. If you have pictures from this era, please email: nes@baltimorepositive.com and share and tag us on social media. We’d love to see your side of our 25 WNST Stories of Glory. And if you have a story to tell, let’s tell it. Gratitude for all of the years of your support keeping us strong and alive and thriving into our 26th year of doing it better than anyone’s ever done it!
