"Who wants to be a millionaire"? Apparently Fox 45 reporter Keith Daniels does. The local newsman appeared on the program today, competing for the grand prize of $1 million. Even more surreal for Baltimore viewers, his appearance -- taped in October -- was part of By the Decade Week. Today's decade was the 70s, which resulted in Daniels and host Cedric the Entertainer dressing in leisure suits and bushy wigs. “Yes, it was me,” tweeted Daniels (@KeithDFox45), with a picture capturing the insanity.

"You were originally supposed to appear in Northwest Baltimore at 8pm tonight, but never arrived. You are 52 year old male, five foot something tall, and reside in Prince George's county. " After Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown skipped last night's debate on Fox 45, someone posted a " Missed Connection " for him on Craigslist. The post accuses Brown of being "last seen raising funds from special interests. " "You also have a hobby of failing assigned tasks in your job as Maryland's Lt. Governor," it continues, chastising the gubernatorial candidate for the shortcomings of the state's health exchange, which he was tasked with implementing.

Sinclair Broadcast Group is warning DirecTV customers in Baltimore and other markets they could lose access to Sinclair-owned stations starting March 1 because of an inability to reach agreement over the amount the satellite company pays to carry the stations and their programs.

Sinclair's "carriage" agreement with DirecTV, which includes both stations, ends Feb. 28.

The next televised debate in the governor's race likely will feature two candidates and an empty lectern. Baltimore Fox affiliate WBFF-TV announced "finalized" debate plans Monday that include only two of the top three Democrats in the race: Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and Del. Heather R. Mizeur. The pair are scheduled to face off next Tuesday without the candidate leading the polls, Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, who has declined to participate. Brown's campaign consistently has told debate organizers the lieutenant governor has no plans to attend, but the Sinclair-owned Fox affiliate plans to leave an empty lectern on the stage in his place.

When an Air Force F-117A stealth fighter jet broke apart in midair during a 1997 air show and George E. Weiss Sr. caught it on videotape, he knew he had valuable footage.But his ownership of that footage was short-lived. And just how valuable the video was remains for a court to decide, if a federal lawsuit goes forward that pits Weiss, a roofer retired on disability, against Chesapeake Television Inc., owners of WBFF-TV Fox 45.Weiss and his son, George E. Weiss Jr., 29, allege that Fox 45 took the video the father and son gave them to review minutes after the crash near Martin State Airport and aired it on television without permission.

When Bruce Cunningham, the sports director at Fox 45 News, got the Candid Closet call, he was a little surprised. It seems he's only recently become a dapper dresser, and that's just because of a deal between Gage Menswear and Cunningham's new weekly show, Fox 45's Football Playbook. "I got a whole bunch of new suits," Cunningham, 43, says from the Fox studios. "I never used to care about this before -- I'm kind of famous for my sloth -- and I'm taking a lot of abuse around here since the change."
