WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 9: The power of the WNST Text Service to break and deliver sports news

The founder of WNST is an old news hound who was trained by the best in the business in the 1980s at The News American and The Baltimore Sun. When the internet became a thing at the turn of the century and texting quickly became ubiquitous, Nestor Aparicio asked his listeners to join the WNST Text Service sponsored by Koons Ford of Security Blvd. No spam! Ever. It’s been over 18 years since we launched the most trusted source for breaking sports news in Baltimore. What was the big news that you heard first and where were you when you received the text? (And ask Nestor about the time he purposely launched one in the cafeteria at the Ravens’ Liars Luncheon with NFL schedule news to watch everyone in the room reach for their phones!)

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!
