Kendel Ehrlich leaving WBAL radio

WBAL Radio Friday confirmed that Kendel Ehrlich is leaving the station and will be replaced Saturday mornings on air by Clarence Mitchell IV starting tomorrow, Sun colleague David Zurawik is reporting.

From his post, over at his Z on TV blog:

Both general manager Ed Kiernan and news director Mark Miller characterized the move as something Ehrlich had been considering at least since the election in November that saw her husband, Bob, defeated by Martin O'Malley in the governor's race.

Miller and Kiernan said Ehrlich was making the move in an effort to spend more time at Saturday sports events involving their family. Ehrlich, who also regularly appeared on a weekly roundtable show Friday afternoons on the station, will no longer be part of that group either for the immediate future, Miller said.

He added, however, that she had an invitation to be one of several guests who will be involved in the roundtable as the station works to expand the participants and re-brand it as a "stand-alone show."

If she does appear on that show, it would not be until February, according to Miller.

This indicates that Bobby has given up on any future runs for office?

I mean, that is the only reason for her having had a program in the first place... right?

@mr rational, only an omalley leg humper would make a comment like that. Go shill somewhere else

wow, julie. you post comments like cecil calvert's "leg humper" but not the others that call out the ehrlich's abuse of the airwaves.
maybe you and cecil are ehrlich leg humpers.

Nothing more to be gained from staying on WBAL since the election is over. They used the station for what they could get out of it and now they are gone. I hope WBAL knew this was what was going to happen.

Does she still want to "shoot Britney Spears"?
