THIS WEEK at the Church of the Redeemer, I listened to the eulogies for Brent Gunts, the man who was Baltimore's Mr. Television during my youth. A little guy with a crewcut who wore snappy sport coats and bow ties, he came on the air, at least as I remember it, at 1 p.m., just after lunch Monday through Fridays, always on WBAL, the local TV station just down the street at 26th and Charles streets. His colleague and friend, Sydney King, mentioned how delightful local broadcasting was then, say 50 years ago. The national networks were always there, but hometown intimacy had our hearts.
