After The Whistle: Loyola Men’s Soccer vs. Army

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018 by Stefan Joyce

On Friday, November 10th, the top-seeded Loyola Greyhounds men’s soccer team faced off against fifth-seed Army West Point in the Patriot League Championships. Kyle Wenning and Stefan Joyce, hosts of the After the Whistle sports show on WLOY, were at Ridley Athletic Complex to provide some commentary on the game and get fan reactions during the action. Although the Greyhounds didn’t come away with the win, Kyle and Stefan still had a memorable time on a rainy Friday night cheering on the Hounds.

Don’t forget to tune into After the Whistle with Stefan, Kyle, and Austin on Mondays from 12-1 p.m and Fridays from 2-3 p.m!

The Mayor’s Christmas Parade – Gallery

Monday, November 5th, 2018 by The Professor

WLOY has been a part of the Mayor’s Annual Christmas Parade in Hampden since 2010 when we were invited to enter. We naturally assumed this meant we needed a float so we built one. Unlike all the other media that entered the parade with their generic vans, we got a bit serious… We have lots of photos from the various years but below are links to the official ones on the parade’s website. Perhaps the best result was when the parade was up for US Today’s 10 Best Holiday Parades in the US award. The featured image used worldwide was our very own float with Hillary tossing out fuzzy snowballs to the kids lining the sidewalks. We were pretty overwhelmed to see that as the photo used as it was a complete surprise! The parade is coming back this year (December 2nd, 1:00pm) and runs from Falls Rd & Cold Spring Lane along Falls Road South to 38th Street where it turns East and runs to Chestnut, turning North and ending. Join the fun (and 20,000 friends) and say hi to WLOY. Who knows what this year’s theme will be?? Read on for the image gallery! (more…)

The Charm City Night Market, happening this Saturday, will be the first of hopefully many future Lunar Mid-Autumn Festivals that will be taking place in Baltimore, spanning from the Lexington Market to Park Avenue. Learn about the Chinese culture by listening to the music–not to mention, a WLOY favorite, Cecilia Grace will be performing on the main stage at 5:00pm. Take a moment to experience the art, whether that be in the form of jewelry or lanterns (maybe even buy a few things). And also make sure to take advantage of my favorite part of any culture, and taste as much of the food as your wallet allows. Take a sneak of what there is to offer by accessing their instagram @charmcitynightmarket.

The South African television, radio host and comedian, Trevor Noah, will be making an appearance in Baltimore!

But hurry, the last show sold out in two days.

Trevor Noah has become one of the leading figures in modern pop culture and media. In his short time with The Daily Show, he has been able to accomplish so much in satirical political commentary– including getting a White House interview with Former President Barack Obama. He also finished the first quarter of 2017 with one of the highest rating The Daily Show has ever seen. If you can’t make at to his stand-up show, I encourage you to check out his work!

Explore Baltimore: Common Ground

Friday, July 28th, 2017 by Cara Hullings

What: Common Ground Cafe & Coffee

Where: 819 W 36th St

When: 7am-5pm Everyday

Let me let you in on a little tip: Common Ground is the best place in the world. No matter what you get at this place, you WILL enjoy it. I whole heartedly suggest walking in and just ordering the first thing you read because it’s guaranteed to be good. Common Ground has a little bit of everything from coffee to New York style bagels to sandwiches to vegan/vegetarian options. My personal favorite is the BLT on a sun-dried tomato bagel, which the friendly servers suggested I try one time. This combo did not disappoint and I am now hooked on it, craving my new favorite sandwich basically 24/7. If your not a meat person, then try out Common Ground’s other classics like the Avenue Powerhouse, which is homemade hummus, mixed greens, tomatoes and cucumbers, or go for the quiche of the day. Whatever you decide on, grab a delicious coffee with it (and maybe even use one of Common Ground’s WLOY mugs) and sit down to enjoy the great atmosphere of this amazing cafe.
