New York -- Howard Stern said yesterday that "a personal vendetta" was behind a $218 million lawsuit from his former employers in terrestrial radio. CBS Radio is suing Stern, his agent and Sirius Satellite Radio Inc., accusing them of "misappropriating millions of dollars" of CBS airtime by promoting Stern's move to satellite radio before he made the shift. (CBS Radio had formerly been known as Infinity Broadcasting, part of the Viacom Inc. conglomerate before CBS split up with Viacom at the beginning of this year.

Baltimore is going to have a new all-news radio station. Or part of one, anyway. WNEW-FM (99.1), a CBS-owned Washington-oriented station, is repositioning itself as a Maryland station focused on Baltimore, Annapolis and Washington as of 5 a.m. Monday, according to Steve Swenson, senior vice president and market manager for CBS Radio in Washington. Will the change really mean more and better information for listeners in Baltimore, which does not have a 24/7 all-news station? Or is it mainly a matter of rebranding by a Washington station with a big signal that has failed in its two years as an all-news outlet to put a dent in WTOP's dominance in the D.C. market?

The Ravens are upset with the city's parking authority for leasing a lot used for game-day bus parking to a local radio group and say the team was not given a fair shot at bidding on the space. The city agreed to lease Lot O, a space not far from Russell Street near M&T Bank Stadium, to CBS Radio last July. But the Ravens say the city reached the deal without notifying the club, the Maryland Stadium Authority or major local parking companies that the space was available. In an April 19 letter to the parking authority, team president Dick Cass said the Ravens would have bid at least $60,000 a year compared with the $25,000 CBS paid and would have guaranteed far more space for game-day parking.

At 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Baltimore will have a new sports radio talk lineup on WJZ-AM (1300) with the launch of CBS Sports radio at that frequency on the dial. The CBS-owned station will run 24/7 with syndicated talk, while its sister station, 105.7 The Fan, will continue with its locally produced and hosted lineup of sports talk. Chris Oliviero, senior vice president of CBS Radio, says Baltimore is one of the cities where his network has both an AM and an FM sports-talk station, and that it could be a model for the future of CBS Sports Radio.

If all the trades and free-agent signings don't improve how the Orioles look in 2007, maybe the games at least will sound better. The Orioles confirmed a long-standing rumor yesterday and announced that the team is leaving its radio home of 19 years, WBAL (1090 AM), for CBS Radio's WHFS-FM (105.7). According to a release issued by the club, WHFS will become the flagship station for the 16-station Orioles Radio Network, which will carry all 162 regular-season games, as well as some exhibitions beginning in March.

When Orioles vice president Jim Duquette appeared on The Mark Viviano Show yesterday, he did something on ESPN Radio 1300 (WJFK/1300 AM) that he couldn't do on other radio stations in town - take questions from listeners. Last week, sports talk host Steve Davis of WBAL (1090 AM) went public with what he characterized as an Orioles-imposed ban on call-in questions for club management when on stations not owned by Orioles rights-holder CBS Radio. But a top manager at CBS Radio - whose WHFS (105.

Last Monday, one of the most famous sets of call letters in the history of Baltimore radio was resurrected on local airwaves. And so far, listeners are split about the new HFS. Broadcasting on 97.5-FM, the newest incarnation is patterned closely after the influential alternative rock station once found at 99.1 on the dial — until its abrupt switch to Latin pop station El Zol in 2005. "The music made popular by HFS has lived on long after the station went off the air," CBS Radio senior vice president Bob Philips said last week when announcing the new station, noting that the brand had been kept alive as a streaming Internet station over the past six years.

The Orioles wanted creative control of all pre- and post-game programming on WBAL Radio (1090 AM), and the station's objection to that was a major reason its 19-year relationship with the club ended, said WBAL vice president and station manager Jeff Beauchamp. The Orioles counter that between a clearer FM signal on WHFS (105.7), the ability to promote the club on five different stations, a strong investment in high-definition radio and creative ideas for pre- and post-game content, CBS Radio offered too good a package to turn down.

The uproar over talk-radio host Don Imus' racially charged remarks about a women's basketball team prompted NBC News and CBS Radio yesterday to suspend Imus in the Morning for two weeks, starting Monday. The action follows Imus' reference last week to members of the Rutgers University women's team as "nappy-headed hos." CBS, which oversees Imus' daily broadcasts to more than 70 radio stations, said yesterday, "We are disappointed by Imus' actions last week which we find completely inappropriate.
