In the upside-down world of radio and TV, where careers come and go like chunks of ice in pre-Christmas storms, Adam Vorce is making his mark. And he is doing it the old-fashioned way, by wearing out shoe leather, by developing contacts, by staying positive. The North Laurel resident, a 22-year-old student in TV and radio at Howard Community College, is an eager, fresh-faced sports junkie who can rattle off box scores and factoids like nobody's business. With a goal of a career as a sportscaster, he knows that getting your foot in the door means paying your dues, sacrificing your time and energy and making a name for yourself in a field that's rife with competition.

The suit alleges that during her time at MASN, Aparicio, Glenn Clark and Drew Forrester made repeated statements about Royle on WNST 1570AM, on blogs and on Twitter.

CBS Thursday announced the launch of a national sports radio network that will include two stations in Baltimore and looks to seriously challenge ESPN dominance of the sports-talk airwaves. The CBS action, which includes Cumulus Media, another broadcasting giant, will make for an audience of about 10 million listeners when the network debuts Jan. 2. CBS Sports Radio will be able to draw on such resources as CBS Sports, CBS News and cbssports.com, making it one of the most impressive sources of sports information in broadcasting right off the bat. In Baltimore, CBS Sports will air 24/7 on WJZ-AM, while only certain elements of it will be carried on WJZ-FM (105.7 The Fan)

Though she's miles up the East Coast, former Baltimore sports reporter Jen Royle's bad feelings for Baltimore seem fresh as ever. Royle, a radio personality left WJZ-FM (105.7 The Fan) after Ravens season to return to Boston, her hometown. That followed a very public spat in which she sued Nestor Aparicio and two of his employees at radio station WNST for defamation. Though she dropped the suit a few months later, and before she left Royle told Sun writer David Zurawik last December that "nothing negative" was driving her from Baltimore,  she seems to be singing a different tune now. Monday night on Twitter Royle unleashed a stream of smack against Charm City in exchanges with a few of her Twitter followers.

The radio home of the Orioles, 105.7 FM, changed its format yesterday from news talk to sports talk, giving Baltimore its first FM sports station - even though programmers there stopped short of embracing sports 24/7. From 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., the newly christened WJZ-FM, formerly WHFS-FM, will feature local sports-talk programming, with hosts including such familiar names as Mark Viviano, Scott Garceau, Bruce Cunningham and Anita Marks. Ed Norris, the former city police chief and state police commissioner whose afternoon news-talk show had been one of the few ratings bright spots in the 105.7 lineup, will move to the key weekday morning drive time slot.
