March 28, 2000|By Bill Free | Bill Free,SUN STAFF

"Nasty" Nestor Aparicio is going national five days a week for four hours.

Beginning April 3, Baltimore's Aparicio will be heard in 140 radio markets around the country on the One On One radio network of Northbrook, Ill.

Aparicio, 31, will have the 2 to 6 p.m. time slot Monday through Friday for his "Nasty Nationwide" show that will be aired locally each day from 2 to 4 p.m. on WBIS (1190 AM).

WBIS is a 10,000-watt business radio station located in Annapolis. The station is scheduled to be upgraded to 50,000 watts this summer. WBIS also will carry "Nasty's Baltimore Sports Forum" from 1 to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Aparicio said last night his first "Nasty Nationwide" broadcast will be live from Indianapolis, where the NCAA men's national championship basketball game will be played later that night.

What does Aparicio have in store for his new Baltimore-oriented show Monday?

"I have a one-on-one, half-hour interview with Cal Ripken that I did in spring training," he said.

Aparicio said he received the break he needed to get on the national network by "filling in for two weeks a month over the past six to seven months.

"One On One is a very successful company," he said. "It has markets in New York, Chicago, Boston and Los Angeles, and I have a great time slot."

Aparicio plans to keep his residence in Baltimore and says all his live local shows will "continue to exist."
