The Bob Haynie Show
 
Host: Bob Haynie
Station: WNST 1570 AM 
Slot: Weekdays 10AM – 2 PM
National Media partner: Fox Sports Radio
 
Styling: Mid-size SUV
 
Overview:  The Bob Haynie show is as versatile as it is reliable.  The local flavor of this show oozes with honesty and is a pleasure to listen to. This show offers a daily dose of scores, analysis and editorial with large doses of Baltimore-area flavor. The college scene gets more air time here than any other show on the Baltimore sports radio dial. Star rating:  9.0
 
Performance & Handling: This radio show will keep you in comfort whether on the highway of your local college and pro sports talk or going off road with national beat writers for MLB, NBA or NFL.  Hearing the stories from Haynie’s youth growing up as a Baltimore sports fan only adds to the appeal of this locally built machine. Star rating:  8.5
 
Standard features:  Caller interaction is standard and varies depending on the hot topic of the day. Haynie has in-depth interviews with national sports writers almost daily and always gets the guest to give their thoughts on the local teams.  Terrapin Times’ editor Keith Cavanaugh joins Bob every Thursday for the latest from College Park. Star rating:  8.5
 
Accessories:  ESPN Baseball journalist Rob Neyer and ProFootballTalk.com writer Mike Florio join the show in season on a weekly basis. Star rating:  8.0
 
Buyer beware: The bump music is the hardest around with bands like Iron Maiden and Motley Crue. Also, be prepared for a Van-Halen reference sometime during the show. But rest easy, don’t jump to another station…Haynie is worth the little detours down heavy metal lane. Star rating:  8.0
 
Recommendation:  This truck scores medium on styling, but it’s big on value and substance.  This is a vehicle you’ll want to drive for a long time. Star rating:  9.0
 
Overall score out of 60:  51
