Orioles Release TV, Radio Schedules; Mickey Cucchiella Heads To WNST

March 6, 2015

The Orioles' 2015 TV and radio schedules have been released and are available on the team's website.

The Orioles' March 7 Grapefruit League game against the Boston Red Sox can be heard on the team's new radio flagship, CBS sports talker 105.7 The Fan, WJZ-FM. The station, which recently snatched the team from Hearst news talker WBAL, 1090 AM, will carry all 162 regular- season games, including 30-minute pre- and post-games shows for all games.

Like previous seasons, a select number of Orioles games will be heard in the Washington, D.C., market on Red Zebra's ESPN 980, WTEM, and its sister sports talker, WSPZ, 570 AM.

Regionally, the team will also be heard on WNAV, 1430 AM, in Annapolis, Md., WTTR, 1470 AM, in Westminster, Md., and WTHU, 1450 AM, in Frederick, Md.  

New radio affiliates this season include stations in Hagerstown, Md., as well as stations in Lynchburg, Va., and Crewe, Va.

The team's games can also be seen on the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network.


Former 98 Rock, WIYY, morning man Mickey Cucchiella will officially become a contributor to Nestor Aparicio's Towson, Md.,-based sports talker, WNST, 1570 AM.

"Mickey will be doing his own thing interspersed throughout our daily programming, but on Fridays and weekends you'll hear some segments where we'll be chatting with each other and attempting to have some fun as a radio tandem," Aparicio wrote Feb. 24 on Aparicio does the morning show at WNST.

In November 2014, Cucchiella, a local stand-up comic, guest hosted mornings at 105.7 The Fan.

Since leaving 98 Rock June 28, 2013, Cucchiella has been running the Vape Lounge in Harford County, where he sells electronic cigarettes.


Santino Quaranta, a Baltimore native and former D.C. United midfielder, is back this season as an analyst for Comcast SportsNet's coverage of the Major League Soccer team. He'll be joined by Sebastian Salazar, who rejoined CSN Dec. 2, 2014, as sideline reporter and game-day show host.

Comcast SportsNet will carry 24 D.C. United matches in 2015, kicking off with the team's season opener against the Montreal Impact at 3 p.m. March 7.  

The Bethesda, Md.,-based network will again present game day shows "D.C. United Pregame Live" and "D.C. United Postgame Live" surrounding select games.

Also, CSN will launch a new monthly show, "D.C. United Central," starting in April.

Dave Johnson will again serve as the team's play-by-play man. He's held that position since the team's inaugural season in 1996.


105.7 The Fan, placed fourth in the Baltimore market radio ratings for the month of January. WBAL-AM, 1090, which does sports talk in evenings, placed ninth. CBS's Washington, D.C., news talker WNEW, 99.1, the flagship of the Washington Wizards, placed 17th in the Baltimore market.
