Another big week for giveaways, live shows and season openers here at WNST!

Posted on 03 September 2013 by WNST Staff

Once again, WNST will be all over Charm City this week as we’re excited about a Baltimore Ravens season opener, a Baltimore Orioles playoff push and more.

It starts Tuesday night, as “The Reality Check”‘s Glenn Clark returns to Hooters Towson 7-8 for our next “Grab A Bud” Happy Hour presented by Budweiser. This is your last chance to win tickets to see Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson from NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”) Wednesday night at The Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric. If you need a reminder of how funny Nick Offerman is, check this out from ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Glenn will have six pairs of tickets to give away to the first six people that come by and say hello while rooting on the Orioles against the Cleveland Indians. On Wednesday night, it’s “The Morning Reaction”‘s Luke Jones’ turn to “Grab a Bud” with everyone, as he’ll be at Hooters Towson 7-8pm also courtesy of Budweiser. Luke will have plenty of giveaways as well, including tickets to see Kenny Loggins at The Lyric Sunday, September 15.

Thursday afternoon we’ll gear up for the Ravens’ season opener against the Denver Broncos with an awesome pre-game party at Noble’s in Federal Hill courtesy of Pinnacle Vodka. ESPN The Magazine’s Kevin Van Valkenburg will be stopping by to hang out as “The Reality Check” broadcasts live 2-6pm. We’ll have more giveaways and you’ll DEFINITELY want to try Nobles’ “Orange Crush Davis” ahead of the O’s/White Sox game that night or the Keith Urban concert at the Inner Harbor-wherever you’re headed.

Thursday night, “The Nasty Purple Pregame & Postgame Shows” return on AM1570 WNST.net. Glenn, Luke and Ryan Chell will take you up to kickoff in Denver with Nestor Aparicio live from The Mile High City! The shows are brought to you in part by First Choice Automotive in Joppa. Glenn and Ryan will be back after the game for a two hour postgame show with live reaction from Denver before Luke joins Drew at 6am Friday for The D&L Window Tinting Morning Reaction.

Glenn returns to Nobles Friday afternoon for another Purple & Orange Friday edition of “The Reality Check” with more great giveaways.

You won’t want to miss any of it.

We’re going to make some sort of good out of this “Postergate” debacle

We’re going to make some sort of good out of this “Postergate” debacle

Posted on 29 August 2013 by Glenn Clark

So it’s been a wild 36 hours since I learned that a Denver broadcaster was wandering around vandalizing Joe Flacco posters in the Mile High City. We’ve been through a bunch. If you need to get caught up on the first part, here’s this. This lead to another contentious (and, frankly, stupid) on-air chat with my new “friends” in the Rocky Mountains. Unfortunately, there was also a Deadspin article posted with a startling lack of context, which lead me to have to explain further.

Deadspin was right about one thing. Almost everything about “postergate” in the last day and a half has been absolutely moronic.

So we’re going to change that.

As I’ve stated numerous times over the last day, the biggest issue I’ve had with any of this has been the notion that murder-of any form or any kind-is something funny. On Tuesday, I thought the appropriate way to make that point was to remind someone who was making a joke about murder that murder happens in every city (not just Baltimore) and is not something to joke about. With the benefit of hindsight, I could have cut the conversation off completely when my guest that day made a murder joke. I probably should have. In fact, on Wednesday’s edition of “The Reality Check”, I apologized for not doing that very thing. It was an option I had and didn’t choose to exercise. Thinking upon it further, I should have.

And it’s with that in mind that I’m hellbent on doing something good with this.

We’re hosting our next “Grab a Bud” Happy Hour at Hooters in Towson tonight. For those that haven’t made it out to any of our past events, they’re very low-key gatherings to hang out, rap about sports, enjoy the company of the Hooters girls and drink some beers.

For tonight’s “Grab a Bud” happy hour, I’d like to try to do something better than that.

I want to try to help people that are aggressively working to make sure that come next August, we won’t already have 150 murders on the year in our city.

I have five autographed Joe Flacco caricatures (none of which have been vandalized in any way) to give away tonight. They all look something like this.

They’re the real deal. We watched the Super Bowl MVP sign each and every one. We’ve been holding on to them waiting for the right time to give them away. This is it.

The first five people to come by Hooters Thursday night and make a $25 donation to the Helping Up Mission will walk away with them.

That’s right. We’re not looking for anything crazy…but we will certainly be willing to accept any further donations on the Mission’s behalf. We have partnered with HUM before and we will be doing so again this holiday season with our annual coat drive (a drive that has always been much more about this community than it has been about WNST). If you want to know more about what the Helping Up Mission does, I’d encourage you to check out their site. What they do for our city is truly remarkable.

We’re going to have other giveaways tonight at Hooters, including registering everyone to win a pair of tickets to see both Nick Offerman (next Wednesday) and Kenny Loggins (Sunday, September 15) at the Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric. We’ll also have copies of “America’s Game: The 2012 Baltimore Ravens” (debuting Monday 9pm on NFL Network) and more to give away.

But the first five who make $25 donations to the Helping Up Mission will walk away with autographed Joe Flacco caricatures. I hope we’ll raise even more than the $125 for the Mission on the night.

There’s nothing the WNST community-the Baltimore sports community-does better. Even at the height of something stupid and moronic, good will come.

I look forward to seeing you tonight.

Big week for charity, giveaways, Ravens shows, bus trips and Hooters girls at WNST!

Big week for charity, giveaways, Ravens shows, bus trips and Hooters girls at WNST!

Posted on 27 August 2013 by WNST Staff

It’s a jam packed week here at WNST, with more chances for you to hang out, mingle, win prizes and meet players than perhaps we’ve ever slammed into a single week before.

THURSDAY NIGHT:

Glenn Clark from “The Reality Check” continues his “Grab a Bud” happy hour series at Hooters in Towson courtesy of Budweiser. Glenn will be rooting the Orioles on against the Red Sox, showing some major support for Towson against UConn and keeping tabs on the Ravens as they visit the Rams. If you stop by Hooters, not only will there be Hooters girls, but you can take advantage of some of their brand new menu additions, including “The Southwestern.”

The WNST.net staff got a taste of this beauty last week. It’s glorious. Everyone who attends Thursday night will be registered to win tickets to see Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson from NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”, who made a hilarious appearance on “The Reality Check” last week that’s worth listening to if you missed it) Sept. 4 or Kenny Loggins Sept. 15 at The Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric. Glenn will be giving away tickets on site, so anyone who stops by between 7pm and 8pm will be registered. There will be other great giveaways as well, and rumor has it there are girls at Hooters. Just a rumor.

FRIDAY NIGHT:

As the Grand Prix of Baltimore gets underway downtown (we encourage you to get your tickets now!), WNST has two incredible events lined up. First, we’ll kick off our 2013 Ravens player show series with Super Bowl XLVII champion left tackle Bryant McKinnie at Adams Jeep in Aberdeen. The show gets underway at 7pm. We’ve had a ton of fun with the man known as “Mt. McKinnie” over the years. Sometimes he even gets into song.

If you want pictures and autographs with Bryant Friday night, make sure you go right now to get your ticket. The autograph ticket will cost you just a $15 donation to Living Classrooms Foundation. (ALL proceeds go to the Living Classrooms Foundation.) Get your tickets now, there are a ton of rowdy Ravens fans in Harford County that will be out in full force.

Later Friday night, Glenn Clark and Nestor Aparicio will wander down Route 40 to Exscape Nightclub for a huge orange celebration. Between 8:30 and 10:30, we’ll be rooting on the Birds as they battle the Yankees with a FREE taco bar and $5 Orange Crush Machados. As if that wasn’t enough, every single person who stops by to see us between 8:30 and 10:30 will walk away with a very awesome “Crush Davis” t-shirt courtesy of The Zone Superstore. See a look at the back of the shirt below. Another rumor? There are also girls at Exscape Night Club.

SATURDAY:

Our tradition of taking Baltimore Orioles fans on the road continues, as our Orange Roadtrip to The Bronx to see the Birds battle the Yanks departs White Marsh at 7am. It’s a tremendous chance for you to root on the O’s in an ALDS rematch against a team they’re fighting with again this year for a postseason spot. The trip is just $119 per person and includes the ride up and back, ticket, beer/soda/breakfast/snacks. With an afternoon start, the bus should return at a very reasonable time.

Here’s trip down memory lane to our first ever trip to the new Yankee Stadium…

Keep all of this in mind as you prepare for your Labor Day weekend. It’s going to be a ton of fun throughout Charm City (and beyond) for the WNST crew. Look forward to seeing you around!

Three-way decision: Radov, Kryglik & Dickinson share 2012 Baltimore Sports Media Superstar crown

Posted on 27 July 2012 by Nestor Aparicio

After three months of exhaustive research, work and auditions, we had a very difficult decision in anointing the 2012 Baltimore Sports Media Superstar crown on Thursday night at Hooters in Towson.

After a lengthy debate and a myriad of input and criteria — from facts, knowledge, video & audio tryouts, live audiences, trivia challenges and panel conversations — we arrived at three winners who will split the $1,000 prize for the 2012 title.

Congratulations to Daniel Radov, Jeff Kryglik and Brett Dickinson for sharing the title this year. All will be given opportunities to participate at WNST.net & AM 1570 this fall as we ramp up our football and weekend coverage, led by the re-emergence of Fox Sports Radio at WNST.

Many of the remaining 13 finalists will also be given chances to contribute at WNST.net as well.

Here’s the speech I gave last night regarding the process and the presentation of the winners:
