  • 10 Baltimore shows and stories to look for on TV this summer

    10 Baltimore shows and stories to look for on TV this summer
    From Rep. Elijah E. Cummings playing a leading role in televised hearings on American deaths in Benghazi, to the Game Show Network visiting a Baltimore church to play matchmaker for a member of the congregation, there is going to be a distinct local...
  • HBO's 'Normal Heart' is an extraordinary TV movie

    HBO's 'Normal Heart' is an extraordinary TV movie
    HBO’s "The Normal Heart" will do something to you that TV rarely does: rock you to your emotional roots. The power of this HBO movie starring Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts and Jim Parsons is such that you can forget about turning off the TV after the...
  • UM physics professor a lauded scientist, passionate teacher

    UM physics professor a lauded scientist, passionate teacher
    Professor James Gates delivers his big ideas in analogies and metaphors. Setting lax standards for schoolchildren in science classes is like teaching them to dunk a basketball on a 9-foot-high hoop, when kids the next town over play with one 10 feet...
  • Protect children in youth sports [Commentary]

    Protect children in youth sports [Commentary]
    While there has been strong focus on concussions in recent years (all 50 states and the District of Columbia now have concussion safety laws), no similar effort has been made in this country to enact laws to protect children playing sports from abuse...
  • After decades of belief, this is the year I lost faith in '60 Minutes,' CNN

    After decades of belief, this is the year I lost faith in '60 Minutes,' CNN
    This is a column I have put off for weeks, because it makes me sad to write it. And ultimately, it begs an answer, which I am not sure I have. But with the year ending, I can no longer avoid it. After decades of writing about television and media, this...
  • 'PBS NewsHour' - on the brink of marginalization, extinction?

    “PBS NewsHour,” once one of the nation’s most influential broadcasts, is on the brink of marginalization — if not extinction. And for those of us who believe TV needs at least one noncommercial, nightly, national newscast in...
  • Columbia gunman was quiet, didn't stand out, former classmates say

    Columbia gunman was quiet, didn't stand out, former classmates say
    Darion Marcus Aguilar became a vegan after watching a television show about how animals are slaughtered. That transformation, says a family friend, shows just how much the teen cared about life. But with Aguilar, 19, suspected of killing two people...
  • 'NewsHour' criticism misses the mark [Letter]

    In response David Zurawik's column, "A 'NewsHour' filled with reruns and PBS promotion — not so much the news" (Dec. 19), I have to respectfully disagree. I worked at the NewsHour for two years, from 2011 to 2013, and had been an avid viewer long...
  • Baltimore's Center Stage looks very good in PBS documentary on 'Raisin' cycle

    Baltimore's Center Stage looks very good in PBS documentary on 'Raisin' cycle
    These are hard times for PBS. Vast changes in technology and lifestyle, coupled with withering economic forces and timid leadership, threaten the existence of public television as we’ve known it for the past 43 years. So on the rare occasions these...

    Samuel J. English III, broadcaster
    Samuel J. English III, a former WBAL-TV staff announcer and weather forecaster who later held broadcasting positions at Maryland Public Television and Towson University, died Sunday of respiratory failure at his Pikesville home. He was 79. "Jim was...
  • From Brooklyn's 'Streisand' to Baltimore's 'Raisin,' arts thrive on PBS

    From Brooklyn's 'Streisand' to Baltimore's 'Raisin,' arts thrive on PBS
    I don't expect to find much art on TV anymore — especially on the broadcast networks. The medium started out with great promise for the arts. Prime-time variety series of the 1950s, like Sid Caesar's “Your Show of Shows,” regularly...
  • BSO oboist Michael Lisicky's books recall department stores of the past

    BSO oboist Michael Lisicky's books recall department stores of the past
    You might think of Michael Lisicky's obsession with department stores as an orchestral tone poem for a single oboe: at turns plaintive and raucous, eloquent and funny, with unpredictable little swerves. Lisicky is second oboist with the Baltimore...
