WBAL Radio (1090 AM) is Maryland's dominant and most powerful radio station. Since 1925, generations of Marylanders have turned to WBAL Radio for news, weather, thought-provoking discussions and sports.
A good choice if you want to listen to commentators running the gamut from conservative to libertarian and independent with an intense focus on local topics. The entire lineup from 6:00 - 5:30 weekdays is good with some younger hosts that are coming up nicely in the field of talk radio.
The guy below that mentions WBAL being a Republican mouthpiece is simply wrong. They have many independents or even Libertarians on. Dan Joseph, also mentioned below, is far from a right-winger.
Please let me know when Dan Joseph goes on vacation so I can turn my radio back on.
This is republican propaganda radio and much like their leader donnie dum-dum, they lie, lie, and lie.
Information about the radio
As Maryland's only 50,000-watt AM station, WBAL's signal travels substantially further than any other station in the state and beyond.
The station's news/talk format is both a source of information and entertainment. WBAL Radio also employs the largest news staff of any radio station in the state, providing in-depth reports on local and regional issues. WBAL Radio is also the flagship radio station for Baltimore Ravens football.
