The Peter Principles (Ch. 11) – Letting The Moose Loose in pinstripes

Peter Angelos hated losing to George Steinbrenner. But somehow he had no problem with a Hall of Fame pitcher getting fed up with the awfulness of Orioles ownership and leadership. This story sheds lots of new light on the Orioles biggest loss to Yankees when Mike Mussina walked to The Bronx.

The Peter Principles (Ch. 8) – That time Peter Angelos tried to buy the Washington Redskins

Intent on buying the Washington Redskins and watching baseball in Cuba with Fidel Castro, Peter G. Angelos was enjoying his new found fame and dalliance in sports after spending a lifetime not caring much about the local teams. The Orioles owner was enjoying destroying the franchise on the field at the turn of the century.

The Peter Principles (Ch. 7) – A Ray of darkness, not zen for Wren and a Frank malaise sets over Orioles

Peter G. Angelos was developing a well-earned reputation as a supreme meddler, an intimidating life force and a bad guy to work for in Major League Baseball. He was making the antics of George Steinbrenner circa 1978 look like a sick, reprised role in Baltimore.

The Peter Principles (Ch. 6) – Wire to Wire, champagne and the Dumb Dumb divorce

WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 8: The day we turned WNST back on and Shannon Sharpe made the Ravens a real franchise

WNST-AM 1570 was originally leased by Nestor Aparicio from May 1998 through October 1999 and he had to bid farewell on the airwaves before being syndicated by One On One Sports and Sporting News Radio out of Chicago to return back to the local airwaves in September 2000 the same weekend the Ravens caught fire as a franchise against the Jacksonville Jaguars. That team would win Super Bowl XXXV four months later in Tampa. It was a special time to be the first and only station on the dial doing sports radio in the Charm City.

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!)
