WTMD adds HD-2 local bands channel


In the ultimate act of local programming, WTMD-FM Baltimore has launched The Baltimore Channel on WTMD HD-2 and on line at wtmd.org. The Baltimore Channel airs music from Baltimore-based musicians 24 hours a day, seven days a week — the only public radio station in the country to give local bands, singers and artists their own full time radio station.

Free music downloads are also available from the Baltimore Channel’s featured artist of the month. Several Baltimore bands will be on hand to celebrate the launch of The Baltimore Channel on Wednesday during WTMD’s Winter Fund Drive. Baltimore musicians will answer phones and solicit station memberships on air with WTMD disc jockeys.
