Outside a mega-movie theater at the White Marsh mall, people are whispering and staring at the man with white frizzy hair. "You on Channel 13?" a young man asks as he takes a break from sweeping up litter. "What's your name?" It's Richard Sher, former anchor and longtime reporter at Baltimore's WJZ-TV, and he is just emerging on this warm July night from a special screening of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Starring Saturday Night Live alum Will Ferrell, the movie, which opens today, spoofs television news in the 1970s.

Back in July, I wrote about Gov. Martin O'Malley becoming a staple of network and cable Sunday morning TV. Public affairs show hosts ranging from Bob Schieffer to Candy Crowley talked about the attributes Maryland's governor brings to the national conversation about the nation's civic life. This Sunday, he will do less familiar turn on Baltimore TV sitting down for an interview with Richard Sher on the former WJZ newsman's "Square Off" show. I am interested in hearing what O'Malley has to say when he's speaking to a local audience and isn't riding TV point for President Obama's re-election campaign.

Stedman Graham is one self-help author who practices what he preaches almost every day of his life. If he didn't, he would likely be lost in one of the largest and most overwhelming shadows in American life. Graham, known to millions as "Oprah Winfrey's boyfriend," was in town last week promoting his 11th book, "Identity: Your Passport to Success," a guide to creating your own identity rather than letting others define and limit who and what you can imagine yourself being. One of his stops was Richard Sher's "Square Off" show, which airs at 11 a.m. Sunday on WMAR (Channel 2)

Charm City gets plenty of face time in Kitty Kelley's "Oprah," the unauthorized biography of Oprah Winfrey. In fact, "Baltimore" is the seventh word in Kelley's book, appearing well before "Hollywood," "talk show," "book club" or even "successful" (but after "Chicago," Winfrey's base of operations for the past 26 years). Released in bookstores today, "Oprah" follows Winfrey from her hardscrabble beginnings in Mississippi (while quoting relatives who insist her youth wasn't nearly as impoverished as she's made it sound)

Richard Sher's "Square Off," Baltimore's longest-running public affairs, moves to 11 a.m. Sunday on WMAR-TV's schedule. "We're excited about making the move," says Sher, "because we will no longer be competing with shows like 'Meet the Press' or 'Sunday Morning.' By 11 a.m. those shows are gone, and it's clear sailing for us -- and our audience focused on issues that matter locally. "
