Good thing I had both hands on the steering wheel when I was listening to 105.7 FM yesterday. Anita Marks was praising some of the Orioles' moves since Andy MacPhail's arrival and ranked the Miguel Tejada trade among the majors' all-time best. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/mediumwell)

Sports reporter Jennifer Royle is leaving Baltimore radio station WJZ-FM (105.7 The Fan) at the end of the Baltimore Ravens season, she said Tuesday. "I've been going back and forth in my head for months about what I want for myself in 2012," Royle said Tuesday night in a telephone interview. And while her next career move is still undecided, Royle says she knows that she wants to return to Boston. "I can't confirm that I'm making a career move," Royle said. "But I've been away from home for 15 years, and in my heart, I want to replant my roots in Boston.

In their roles as co-hosts on the new 105.7 FM The Fan, Scott Garceau and Anita Marks will both be on during Ravens players shows. Speaking of the Garceau-Marks pairing, CBS Radio Baltimore executive Robert Philips said: "I think Scott has been around and they'll make a great team. It's not so much Anita losing [her own show] - she's gaining a partner. I think they offer great balance." (For more, go to baltimoresun.com/mediumwell)

I'm surprised at the amount of feedback I got from yesterday's post about Bruce Cunningham leaving his weekday radio show on 105.7 The Fan. I know many Baltimore sports fans are passionate about their talk radio, but wow. To sum up the comments, there were mixed feelings about Cunningham, people love his replacement, Bob Haynie, and a bunch of you don't care for Damon "the Bulldog" Yaffe. Oh, and one guy misses Anita Marks. Anyway, this whole debate got me thinking about national sports media personalities -- Chris Berman is the worst -- and I'm wondering how you guys feel about the big boys in my profession.

Each weekday, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Anita Marks is naked. Not physically naked, mind you - although anyone with an Internet connection and a basic understanding of Google can, if he's so inclined, see pictures of Marks in little more than her birthday suit - but emotionally naked. To be truly good at sports talk radio, you pretty much have to be. You have to share a little piece of yourself every day with your listeners, and delicately balance confidence with curiosity and vulnerability.

I don't care if Ramon Hernandez hits .632 all season, and he just might. I think he's worth every penny just for his arm. He adds a new dimension to this team. ... I received a few suggested titles for Anita Marks' sports talk show on 1300 AM, which begins May 22. Anita Sports Fix, Mark My Words and Anita Marks THE SPOT were among the entries. I like AM Radio, for her initials. roch.kubatko@baltsun.com For more Roch Around the Clock, go to baltimoresun.com/roch

A remark Tuesday by sports talk-show host Anita Marks has offended some blacks. Marks, on ESPN Radio, 1300 AM, referred to Shawne Merriman, a San Diego Chargers linebacker who is under suspension for steroid use, as a "juice monkey." "It's inappropriate," said Rob Long, a black host on a competing sports station, WNST, 1570 AM, who received several calls about the remark. "It was careless, and I think she should apologize." Marks, a former professional football player, did not return two calls seeking comment, but apparently said on the air yesterday that she uses the remark to refer to steroid users regardless of their color.

ESPN.com's Keith Law wasn't impressed by Orioles pitching prospect Pedro Beato at the Futures Game. During a phone interview on The Anita Marks Show yesterday, Law said Beato's fastball was clocked at 87 mph, and the right-hander appeared to be throwing with maximum effort. Not the power arm that Law anticipated. Because one of you asked: Major League Baseball is expected to return to alternating host cities for the All-Star Game between the two leagues. Commissioner Bud Selig doubled up on the National League to squeeze in more new ballparks.
