Dribs and drabs from the notebook...

Marc Steiner, whose afternoon radio show on WJHU-FM (88.1) is a highlight of that station's daily programming, as well as its only local talk show, is soon to become a TV star.

"MPT On the Line," to follow PBS's televised debate on "The Future of Congress" Sept. 29, will feature Steiner taking calls from viewers interested in talking about what they've just seen, whether they want to react to what was said or give their own views on the subject.

A second show is scheduled to air in October. Plans after that zTC are indefinite, but MPT hopes to make the show a monthly or quarterly event.

Steiner is a Baltimore native whose past includes stints as

everything from political activist to teacher.

WJHU's "The Marc Steiner Show" debuted in 1993. It is heard weekdays from noon to 2 p.m.

Going to Korea

Wasn't it Eisenhower who said, "I will go to Korea?"

Nowadays, it's the folks at WMAR, Channel 2, who will be joining a group of Korean and African-American ministers on a trip to the Asian country Sept. 9-19.

The trip, mounted in reaction to what is viewed as strained relationships between the African-American and Korean communities in Baltimore, will be led by the Rev. Chun Chong You, president of the Council of Korean Churches in Maryland, and the Rev. Frank M. Reid III, pastor of Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Others going include the Rev. Norman Handy of Unity United Methodist Church, Baltimore, and Bishop Frank C. Showell of First Apostolic Faith Church of Jesus Christ Inc., Baltimore.

WMAR, represented by reporter Terry Owens, videographer David Brazelton and public affairs director Lori Grant, is set to be the only local news operation accompanying the delegation.

A series of reports on the trip, to be titled "Bridging the Gap: Korean-American Relations," will air in October.

New voice

There's a new voice on the air at WBAL-AM (1090).

Rosearl Julian, who spent 15 years at WFBR before leaving that station in 1987, will join the WBAL staff Tuesday.
