The new year brings some new jobs on radio and Internet for one-time Baltimore media figures Anita Marks, Marc Clarke and Troy Johnson.
Marks, a former show host at 105.7 The Fan, will start Jan. 5 as a weekend host on NBC Sports Radio. Her shift will run from noon to 3 p.m. Saturdays.
At this point, no Baltimore stations carry the NBC Sports Network. Several stations in Washington do, but none carries the full lineup of NBC programming.
You can, however, listen to NBC Sports Radio online here.
The new job for Marks was announced and reported on Dec. 18. You can read one of those reports at sportsmediajournal.com.
I wonder if the Baltimore guys who seemed to so love hating on Marks when she was at 105.7 The Fan will be checking out her new network gig.
Meanwhile, Clarke and Johnson, of The Big Phat Morning Crew that left the airwaves at Baltimore's WERQ (92.3 FM) in 2006, can be heard again starting Wednesday at the Internet radio operation Power1047.com.
Don't be confused into thinking you can hear The Big Phat Morning Crew at 104.7 FM on your radio dial in Baltimore -- even though a press release sent to the Sun uses the 104.7 designation in referring to itself. The website uses the 104.7 designation at the top of its website as well.
The radio frequency of 104.7 in this market actually carries country music station WAYZ-FM.
Power1047 is Internet radio. Here's how the operation self describes at its website:
Power1047.com is a 24-hour commercial-free Hip Hop and R&B; formatted radio station owned and operated by Hopkins & Ricks Media Group, LLC - an employee-owned media company, operating businesses in the areas of broadcasting and publishing.

Power1047.com plays today's hottest jams as well as exclusive music that you typically would not find on traditional fm radio stations.
