Jeff Weiss may just be the busiest man in Baltimore right now.Four weeks ago, he was named to head a television station that didn't even exist until last Monday, a station cobbled together to ensure the UPN network's continued presence in the Baltimore market.The big problem Weiss and his staff faced wasn't getting the UPN shows on the air; they were ready to go. Problem was, UPN only airs programming three nights a week (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday), and then only from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. What was his new station, WUTB, Channel 24, going to air the rest of the day?

He's bald. He's glamorous. He's building the next television network. And though most people didn't realize it at first, Barry Diller is doing it using Baltimore as a key building block.This is true because one of the details widely overlooked when the TV tycoon agreed to buy working control of Silver King Communications Inc., an obscure Florida company whose 12 UHF stations mostly run the Home Shopping Network, is that one of those stations is WSHW-TV, Channel 24, in Baltimore. So as Mr. Diller sets out to shake up the TV business, Baltimore will be near the epicenter.
