The Ravens have to be a little nervous about the number of players doing radio shows this season. There also seems to be heated competition between the Ravens' flagship station, WBAL, and the former flagship, WJFK. WBAL is supposed to have wide receiver Derrick Mason on Monday nights and coach Brian Billick on Tuesdays. WJFK is supposed to counter with Ray Lewis on Mondays, Bart Scott on Tuesdays, Jonathan Ogden on Wednesdays and Willis McGahee on Thursdays. It has to irk WBAL because the station spent a lot of money for the rights to the Ravens.

With the pending addition of Stan "The Fan" Charles to its nighttime lineup, the folks at WJFK (1300 AM) nudge ever closer to an all-sports format, a first in Baltimore radio history.It would seem to be a natural for the Infinity outlet, given its status as the flagship station of the Ravens, not to mention the increased presence of NASCAR, college basketball and football and other talk shows, as well as the addition of Sunday night baseball.But not quite yet, says Gary Balaban, WJFK's operations manager.

Yesterday, you carved up your turkey. Today, it's a sliced-up column. Amber Theoharis will be leaving Channel 45 at the end of the year. Theoharis, who joined WBFF in September 2004 as No. 2 sports anchor/reporter behind Bruce Cunningham, doesn't have a new full-time gig lined up yet, she said. She has appeared on CBS Radio's stations here, which include all-sports WJFK (1300 AM), and has been hosting a couple of shows on Mid-Atlantic Sports Network. Perhaps she could surface in a bigger role with MASN, which will be adding baseball programming for its Orioles and Washington Nationals coverage next year.

A $50 million lawsuit against two WJFK radio personalities raises fundamental questions about "what is proper to put on the airwaves and what is not," says the attorney who filed the suit Tuesday in Baltimore Circuit Court.Joanne L. Suder filed the suit on behalf of Dawn Tritaik, public relations director for WWMX-FM (106.5). It charges disc jockeys Don Geronimo and Mike O'Meara of WJFK-AM/FM (1300/106.7) with invading Ms. Tritaik's privacy by "outing" her on the air as a lesbian.The 10-count action also accuses the hosts of "The Don and Mike Show" of defamation by broadcasting in early April "a litany of outrageous and highly offensive comments and threats" about Ms. Tritaik.

AFTER 27 consecutive years on WBAL Radio, the University of Maryland is spinning the dial. In a deal announced yesterday, Maryland chose new flagships for Terrapins football and men's basketball games - two of Infinity Broadcasting's Baltimore stations, WJFK (1300 AM) and WHFS (105.7 FM). "Every element of the deal makes this a terrific deal," said Michael Lipitz, Maryland senior associate athletic director. The deal does contain new elements. All men's lacrosse games will be broadcast on WJFK and an increased number of women's basketball games will be carried on the same station.

BALTIMORE'S airwaves have been without the dulcet tones of Stan "The Fan" Charles since he left his sports talk show at WJFK (1300 AM) in November 2001, but Charles is back in town and back on the air on at least a limited basis. Charles will be on from 11 a.m. to noon tomorrow on Tom Davis' talk show on WJFK. Davis said he doesn't have a regular slot for Charles but will use him occasionally, perhaps filling in when Davis or partner Phil Wood aren't on the air. If you took all the hours those three have logged talking about sports in Baltimore and laid them end to end ... Well, I'm not sure how you lay hours end to end, but you get the idea.

Another year, another series of moves on Ravens radio.For a third straight season, the cast of characters is being changed on Ravens broadcasts on WJFK (1300 AM) and WLIF (101.9 FM), with the biggest shift coming among the game announcers themselves, where former analyst/sideline reporter Bruce Cunningham has been taken out of the mix on game days.Also, Tony Harris, news anchor at channels 45 and 54, will be host of the team's Sunday pre-game show, with Stan "The Fan" Charles, last year's pre-game and post-game host, taking over just the post-game program.

Your new afternoon talk host? It's been a few weeks since I started hearing a buzz about a new afternoon (4 p.m.) talk host on WJFK (1300 AM). The Sports Idiots have been filling that slot, but rumor was they were just a place-holder. There is no official announcement yet, but it would appear that a woman from South Florida named Anita Marks is headed to WJFK. Thanks to the Web site dcrtv.com for pointing out the report in The Miami Herald that says Marks is coming to Baltimore. The Herald doesn't name the station, but putting 2 and 2 together, as both dcrtv.

Veterans Scott Garceau and Tom Matte have been ushered out as the radio broadcast team of the Ravens, but their dismissal should have been handled in a more professional manner. The Ravens are expected to announce shortly after the season that they are changing flagship stations from Infinity-owned WJFK (1300 AM) to WBAL (1090 AM) and 98 Rock (WIYY, 97.9 FM). It's more than likely Gerry Sandusky will do the play-by-play and Stan White will be the analyst. No problem there because Sandusky is excellent.

The Ravens are on the verge of moving to a new radio home. After 10 seasons on Infinity-owned WJFK (1300 AM), the team is in final negotiations to have WBAL (1090 AM) and 98 Rock (WIYY-FM) broadcast games and related content next season. Though Ravens spokesman Kevin Byrne said a deal might not be announced for several weeks, he said the team and WBAL are "trying to finalize an agreement right now." WBAL Radio station manager Jeff Beauchamp had no comment. Robert Phillips, market manager for Infinity's Baltimore-area stations - 102.7 FM also broadcasts Ravens games - said WJFK decided not to match WBAL's offer for the broadcast rights.

SPILLING OUT the notebook and offering up small pieces of my mind (which is about all I can afford to give up): On Sunday, ESPN begins its "SportsCenter Across America" summer tour, in which various anchors fan out across the country, appearing at sporting events in all 50 states on 50 consecutive days. We'll get plenty of baseball drop-ins - from the majors to minors to youth league - and a few more off-the-beaten-track appearances, such as from skydiving, freestyle Frisbee and pie-eating events.

Bayhawks today Matchup: Philadelphia Barrage (0-2) vs. Bayhawks (2-0) Site: Johnny Unitas Stadium, Towson Time: 4 p.m. TV/Radio: ESPN2 tape delay (Tuesday, 4 p.m.)/Live on WJFK (1300 AM) Tickets: $8 to $18. Call 1-866-99-HAWKS (42957). Outlook: Depth defines the Bayhawks' offense as the starting attackers - Gary Gait, Mikey Powell and Tom Marachek - have contributed only a third of the team's points. Ten players scored in a 24-8 victory over the New Jersey Pride last week. Named Major League Lacrosse Rookie of the Week for his efforts, midfielder Brodie Merrill scored two long-stick goals in the win. Bayhawks goalies Rob Scherr and Trevor Tierney have allowed just 19 goals, a league low. Though last in the American Division, the Barrage has history on its side.

THE KENTUCKY DERBY is a big hole in the ground. That's sort of how NBC's Derby producer, David Michaels, put it yesterday. During a conference call, Michaels recalled asking jockey Pat Day about how to present the spectacle of the Derby. Day told him the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs is like the Grand Canyon. "Every year, I look at the show as the Grand Canyon," Michaels said. "It's the challenge of capturing this." That won't include new, big technical innovation, he said, "until the time comes when somebody invents a rail cam that won't spook the horses."
