Another governor debate takes shape
...speaking of debates, looks like we have another one.
Baltimore radio talk show host Larry Young announced on his program this morning that Gov. Martin O'Malley and former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. have agreed to a debate on WOLB. It will be broadcast live on the station from 8 to 9 a.m. Oct. 21.
O'Malley spokesman Rick Abbruzzese confirmed O'Malley's participation, and Ehrlich spokesman Henry Fawell said Ehrlich also has agreed to the debate.
Young, a Democratic former city senator friendly with both candidates, has worked for months to secure a debate for his Radio One station. He provided few details but promised more information in the coming days.
"Thank you for keeping your word," Young said, announcing the debate moments ago on his morning program.
Young has been on WOLB since 1998. The station's web site describes The Larry Young Show as the No. 1 black talk show in Maryland. O'Malley and Ehrlich have been guests on the program several times this election season.
