BALTIMORE'S talk-radio fans now have to do some irksome changing of listening habits and time schedules. Their loyalties are being tested as both AM talk stations, WBAL and WCBM, take on new talkmeisters and revamp their lineups.For many years, for example, WBAL's afternoon host, Ron Smith, and morning man, Allan Prell, provided a comfortable symmetry. This duo satisfied the ideological needs of most area listeners, conservatives choosing Mr. Smith, liberals listening to Mr. Prell, and many of each opting for both.

Chipping away at this week's sports media notes so no one slips off the couch from a thin layer of information: * We've seen a flurry of activity in local sports talk radio in recent weeks. First, Rob Long left WNST (1570 AM) for Fox Sports 1370, where he has been doing a 9 a.m.-noon show for a couple of weeks.

The November ratings period that helps to set advertising rates is all but complete. And both of the Titans of Television Hill are busy bragging. For the "sweeps" period ending tonight, WBAL-TV seems highly likely to take top ratings for its 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts, and for the 11 p.m. news programs on Monday through Friday. The NBC affiliate also has the highest-rated weekend morning shows as of the figures available early yesterday morning. Yet it is possible that WJZ, a CBS station with the No. 1 prime-time lineup in the market, will snare highest ratings for the 11 p.m. newscasts when the full week is considered.
