WBAL NewsRadio 1090/FM 101.5 Welcomes T.J. Smith as its Newest Midday Host

WBAL NewsRadio 1090/FM 101.5 announced today that T.J. Smith is the newest addition to the WBAL talk lineup and will host weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Smith is a familiar voice to the WBAL audience, serving as spokesperson for the Baltimore City Police Department from 2015 to 2018, where he appeared regularly on the C4 Show spotlighting unsolved cases. Smith later served as Press Secretary for Baltimore County Executive John Olszewski and ran for mayor of Baltimore City in 2020.


“As a native Baltimorean who has gone to school, worked, run for office and even suffered loss in the city, I’m very familiar with the feel of the public from west Baltimore to the waterfront,” Smith said. “I couldn’t be more excited to join the WBAL Radio family. I look forward to delivering straight talk and sharing my opinion based on my experience working in government and in law enforcement. I’m ready to ‘tell it like it is’ in a reasonable manner.”

“The WBAL audience has known and respected T.J. for years for his frank and honest dialogue on the issues that matter most to people living and working in Baltimore,” said Jeff Wade, Director of Programming/News Director for WBAL NewsRadio 1090/FM 101.5. “Whether it’s policing, politics, or talking Orioles and Ravens, we can’t think of anyone better suited to sit behind the WBAL microphone weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.”

The show can be heard locally at 1090 AM or 101.5 FM and streamed at WBAL.com and the WBAL Radio smartphone app. Smith joins WBAL’s live and local lineup that also includes C4 and Bryan Nehman weekdays 5:30 to 10 a.m. and Torrey Snow and Dan Joseph from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
