Jennifer Royle, a sportscaster at 105.7 The Fan, confirmed Monday that she has dropped her defamation lawsuit against Nestor Aparicio and two of his colleagues at radio station WNST. “All I wanted was for the harassment to stop,” Royle said. “Nestor wrote on his blog that he will never speak my name again. It looks like I won. " But Aparicio doesn't see it that way. "If she wants to go around proclaiming victory,' she's wrong," he said in a telephone interview Monday.

Adam Jones, the always-opinionated center fielder for the Orioles, gave a bizarrely cantankerous interview to a few reporters last week. What he said became a little kerfuffle on the eve of the Orioles opening their quest for their first .500 or better season since 1997. Let me be up front and say that I don't know anything about Adam Jones, other than what I've read in The Baltimore Sun. Generally cast as a jovial, playful guy, he's probably weary like anyone would be after answering years and years of reporters' questions.

A female sports reporter for 105.7 The Fan has filed an $800,000 defamation suit against WNST station owner Nestor Aparicio and two of his hosts, saying they diminished her reputation by calling her "trashy" and incompetent on-air and online. Jennifer Royle, who has been covering the Orioles and the Ravens for WJZ-FM and Mid-Atlantic Sports Network for about a year, filed the suit March 10 in Baltimore Circuit Court. 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.

Like the NFL players he used to cover for his radio show, Jerry Coleman considers himself to be locked out. Let go by WVIE (1370-AM) last week when the station switched to a news/talk format, Coleman is looking for a new gig in the Baltimore-Washington area and is optimistic he will be covering an NFL team in 2011. “I love covering the Ravens,” Coleman said in a phone interview Thursday. “I want that to continue in some capacity and I have spoken with people about that. I hope to be back there when they're playing again.” In September 2008, WVIE announced that it was switching to a sports talk format as an affiliate of FOX Sports Radio, and the station hired Coleman as its sports director and asked him to host a show, of course.

Judging by the comments on David Zurawik’s posts about Mark Viviano leaving 105.7 The Fan , sports fans in Baltimore are almost as passionate about the broadcasters who cover their hometown teams as they are about the actual teams themselves. Every Baltimore broadcaster who has been in front of the camera or behind the microphone has had his or her fair share of loyal supporters -- yes, even Anita Marks. It seems as though many of you were fond of Viviano, who left his morning show at The Fan after more than six years because he needed a break from working two jobs (he is still the sports director at WJZ)

Jamison Hensley Steelers 30-3 Even if the Steelers are playing their backups, the Ravens are still playing their third-stringers. Edward Lee Steelers, 41-9 No Willie Parker, no problem for the Steelers. Ben Roethlisberger might toss five touchdown passes - again. Rick Maese Steelers, 27-23 I say the Ravens give Erik Bedard a shot at the quarterback job, and if that doesn't take, hold tryouts at a carnival dunking booth. Don Markus Steelers, 21-7 Even without Willie Parker, the Steelers will have too much - and too much at stake - for a team that is down to second- and third-stringers.

I am late getting to this, but I can't let the weekend pass without some praise for Glenn Clark and the interview he did on his WNST radio show with Ralph Friedgen, the former University of Maryland football coach. The interview has been excerpted, carried and commented everywhere in the last 48 hours as it deserves to be. Clark did excellent work in showing us how self-centered, immature and reckless with his words Friedgen could be. Here's the portion of the interview causing all the discussion: Clark: Is it tough for you to watch?

All-sports-talk radio has returned to Baltimore's airwaves, courtesy of the man who first brought the format to town, Nestor Aparicio. Aparicio, whose original foray at running WNST (1570 AM) ended last August after a year, is back at the same spot on the dial and with the same format. However, unlike last year, when he was leasing the time from the station's co-owner, David Eppler, Aparicio is heading up a consortium of investers to buy the station. "When all is said and done, I'll be a majority owner.
