Starting in April, former Orioles catcher Chris Hoiles will co-host a new afternoon sports talk radio show on Fox Sports 1370 AM.

Adam Gladstone, the former director of minor league operations for Ripken Baseball and ex-director of baseball operations for the York Revolution, will join Hoiles in discussion about the Orioles and other baseball news. The show will debut next Monday and will air every weekday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., featuring interviews with baseball executives, phone calls from listeners, live remote broadcasts and behind-the-scenes looks at Orioles baseball.

"We are thrilled with the prospect of having [Orioles] Hall of Famer Chris Hoiles as part of the Fox 1370 lineup," said Bob Pettit, the radio station's general manager.

Hoiles, a native of Bowling Green, Ohio, was a 19th-round draft pick of the Detroit Tigers' in 1986 but spent his entire 10-season major league career with the Orioles. From 1989 to 1998, he played in 894 games for the team, hitting .262 with 151 home runs and 449 RBIs.
