BALTIMORE…
We Never Stop Talking
Baltimore sports…
OUR HISTORY
WNST began as a dream come true
for local sports talk show personality
"Nasty" Nestor Aparicio.
He began his radio career on
December 13, 1991, when he was
asked by Kenny Albert to co-host a
show on WITH-AM 1230.
WNST LAUNCHES ON AUGUST 3, 1998
As Baltimore’s first all-sports radio station, WNST launched in August of
1998. By Sept. 10, 2000, Aparicio and a group of local investors purchased
WNST-AM 1570 outright.
The on-air staff of WNST are all true Baltimoreans, giving fans a perspective
that none of the other local media outlets could possibly duplicate. Memories
of the old Orioles, the Colts, 33rd Street, not to mention the ongoing and
innate passion for Baltimore and for Maryland that only true fans can have.
As a result, WNST has over 13 years of building loyalty with local sports fans.
With the largest sports staff in Baltimore, WNST has created an online virtual
resource that leads the web for the Baltimore sports enthusiast.
WE’RE ONLY GETTING BETTER WITH COACH BILLICK
After nine years coaching football in Baltimore and leading the team to the
world championship, Brian Billick has now joined WNST to take us to the next
level with new media. The addition of Coach Billick only solidifies our position as
the ultimate source for hard-core Baltimore sports fans. Don’t miss Brian onair and online.
