March 30, 2009 | Nestor Aparicio

I’m back on the air at 2 p.m. today and we’re getting closer to finalizing all of the contestants in our upcoming “King (or Queen) of Baltimore Sportstalk Competition.” Later this week, we’ll be announcing the details of the competition as well as the first-place prize for anyone who thinks they can do sports media [...]

So you want to be a Baltimore sports media personality in 2009?

March 11, 2009 | Nestor Aparicio

The resumes and cover letters from people who love Baltimore sports and think they can be a 2009 local media sensation are flooding into my email inbox. Some of them are pretty cool and impressive. Lots of folks – all male at this point but I’d love to find some females who really knows sports [...]

So lemme guess: you skipped the Pro Bowl again?

So lemme guess: you skipped the Pro Bowl again?

February 09, 2009 | Nestor Aparicio

I spent the afternoon yesterday at Sylvia’s house in Parkville watching the Pro Bowl, eating chicken wings and pizza and drinking Miller Lite. Honestly, I’m glad we did make a date to watch the game with her many Ravens buddies and waiting for a random big play from a guy in a purple helmet or [...]

December 23, 2008 | Nestor Aparicio

We are finalizing our internal tally and trying to find three finalists in the “Miller Lite Purple Palace” contest. We will be contacting the finalists by the end of the day and shooting wnsTV videos this weekend for next week’s online voting, which will be done by YOU, the WNST and purple palace fans. Stay [...]

Check out the cool purple videos with your football today

Like the rest of you, I’m monitoring all of the Sunday NFL action today, albeit running through an airport or two en route back to Baltimore from frigid Dallas. When we arrived here on Friday, it was 78 degrees. This morning it was 19 degrees. Right now, it’s about 34 degrees. It’s amazing what a [...]

Beating the Redskins in Baltimore…is anything better?

December 08, 2008 | Nestor Aparicio

Let’s start by stating the obvious: any win over the Washington Redskins is a great win, especially when you only get that opportunity every four years. With so much at stake after the Steelers wild comeback over Dallas (the tailgate was essentially a giant, frigid outdoor viewing party), it became more of a playoff game [...]

When do we paint the city purple and make some noise?

November 25, 2008 | Nestor Aparicio

It occurred to me as the National Anthem was playing on Sunday as I began my three-hour freeze in the upper deck of M&T Bank Stadium that the late-arriving crowd might’ve been looking forward to the cold as much as I was. Which is to say, “not so much.” Sunday was the strangest of Ravens [...]

Let The Miller Lite Purple Palace Contest Begin!

November 18, 2008 | Nestor Aparicio

WNST Sports Media has set forth to find the biggest Ravens fan of them all. You know the one we’re talking about? The one with the purple basement? Or the purple room? Or the one with an office, room or space that has purple pictures, memories, autographs, signed footballs, jerseys, etc. It might be a [...]
