Many of you probably know me from reading my blogs here on WNST.net. Some of you may have followed my writing when I was keeping up with “Charm City Sports Talk” or when I did some stuff for Fox 1370 and Sports With Coleman. Or perhaps the only thing you know about a Peter associated with WNST is that Pete the Professor kid that Drew rambles on and on about on random mornings when he wakes up on the wrong side of the bed.
But there is a lot more to the story of my young life, and starting tomorrow (September 24th) you’ll begin to learn a little bit more about me each and every weekend. I’m very excited and proud to announce the start of a new Saturday morning show on WNST 1570 AM and WNST.net. Every Saturday from 10-noon, WNST newcomer Jed Gamber and I will be discussing all things sports with you on “The Jed and Pete Show” (we figured we’d use our names in the title of the show until you become more familiar with us…then maybe we’ll come up with a fancy title).
I’ll introduce Jed Gamber tomorrow morning, but I’ll just say a few words about him right now. Look, I don’t pretend to know everything about sports. In fact, being in this business for more than a year has humbled me a great deal.
But I do have a knack for quickly picking out those who really do know what they’re talking about regarding sports, and those who frankly just don’t get it. You know, the kind of sports “fans” that swear they are diehard Orioles fans but couldn’t tell me who the O’s drafted in the first round in 2003.
I could give more analogies, but I think most of you reading this understand what I mean, and you can tell the difference between someone who knows what they’re talking about and someone who doesn’t.
Obviously, you will make your judgments every Saturday morning, but Jed gets it. He really does. Say 2006 Ravens, and Jed will immediately respond with Steve McNair, 13-3, awful loss to Colts. Say Sidney Ponson trade, and Jed will start talking about the failures of Damian Moss and Kurt Ainsworth.
Jed is a true Baltimore sports fan and he’s extremely knowledgeable. Plus he’s an awesome guy.
Needless to say, I’m excited to talk sports with Jed every Saturday morning on the station that NEVER stops talking Baltimore sports.
And I couldn’t be more grateful to the fine people that work together each day to make WNST what it is today. The opportunity that Nestor Aparicio, Paul Kopelke, Ashley Bishoff, Glenn Clark, Drew Forrester and everyone else associated with the company has provided me is one that I’ll never take for granted and never forget. And I cannot thank them enough for giving me a chance to do something that I’ve dreamed about since I was a little kid.
