  • Creativity follows a familiar path at Southern High School

    Southern High School student Zoe Kasprzyk describes herself as shy and quiet. Though the 17-year-old senior has held several leadership positions in school organizations such as in the Tri-M Music Honor Society and the National Arts Honor Society, she...
  • From 'Salinger' to 'Mitt' and 'Chicagoland,' TV rediscovering documentaries

    From 'Salinger' to 'Mitt' and 'Chicagoland,' TV rediscovering documentaries
    Documentaries were supposed to be a dying genre -- and living proof that we were becoming dumber as a nation. Reality TV is cheaper and easier to make. And who has time for lengthy, in-depth explorations of anything any more in the age of Twitter? Docs...

  • A weekend spent with American voices, for better or worse

    A weekend spent with American voices, for better or worse
      Now that some more pressing things are out of the way (not pressing to you, of course, just my editors), I thought I would share a few thoughts about last weekend, which I spent largely listening to the sound of singing. It was an interesting, if...
  • 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...
  • Catching Up With . . . Former Colts linebacker Dennis Gaubatz

    Catching Up With . . .  Former Colts linebacker Dennis Gaubatz
    The letters keep coming, sometimes 20 a month asking for Dennis Gaubatz's autograph. Sometimes it's a football card that the old Colt receives. More often, it's the cover of one of the three national magazines on which Gaubatz appeared in his five years...
  • '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...
  • 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...
  • Reports of PBS NewsHour's death are greatly exaggerated [Letter]

    Reports of PBS NewsHour's death are greatly exaggerated [Letter]
    While TV critic David Zurawik's article accurately reported that the number of viewers is diminishing for the PBS NewsHour program, as well as for other news programs, there may an alternative view of why this is happening ("'PBS NewsHour' — on...

    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...
  • 'PBS NewsHour' has lost 48 percent of its audience in last 8 years

    'PBS NewsHour' has lost 48 percent of its audience in last 8 years
    Eight years ago this month, I did an interview with then anchor Jim Lehrer in connection with the 30th anniversary of the "PBS NewsHour." It was a laudatory piece, as I had long shared Lehrer's values about journalism and democracy. With "NewsHour" in...
  • A 'NewsHour' filled with reruns and PBS promotion -- not so much the news

    A 'NewsHour' filled with reruns and PBS promotion -- not so much the news
    Earlier this year, I wrote about PBS "NewsHour" losing almost half its audience the last eight years and now averaging under a million viewers a night. I attributed that in part to the program not actually reporting news as much as talking to reporters...
