Nathan Sterner

Local Host, Morning Edition

"If radio were a two-way visual medium," Nathan would see WYPR listeners every weekday between 5am and 3pm. Weekday mornings, Nathan serves up the latest Maryland news and weather (interspersed with the occasional snarky comment).  Nathan also does continuity breaks through the midday, edits Sheilah Kast's "On The Record," infrequently fills in for Tom Hall on "Midday," and does all sorts of fundraising stuff. When not at WYPR, Nathan teaches a class on audio documentary at Towson University, and spends spare time running around Baltimore's streets and hiking around Maryland's natural areas. Before coming to WYPR, Nathan spent 8 years at WAMU in Washington -- working every job from part-time receptionist to on-air host, gaining experience in promotions, fundraising, audience analysis, and program production. Nathan has also served as a fundraising consultant, and helped dozens of public radio stations nationwide with their on-air fundraisers. Originally from rural Pennsylvania, Nathan has called Charm City home since 2005.

Back To School: It’s back to school time –nearly all public schools in the listening area that didn’t open last week are starting classes today. That includes schools in Baltimore City, Baltimore County, and pretty much every other jurisdiction that didn’t open last week. Anne Arundel County schools do a staggered opening – so kids in some grades and at some buildings won’t return until tomorrow. And while most Cecil County kids got back to school last week, pre-K and kindergarten in Cecil won’t start ‘till tomorrow.

The Baltimore City Council is set to vote tonight on a controversial plan to provide $107-million of tax increment financing for the Harbor Point development. Two Baltimore City Council members are asking the state to reimburse the city for property tax money it didn’t receive because of a miscalculation made, at least in part, by the state’s Department of Assessments and Taxation. MD’s limited tax-free shopping week is underway; we’ve got a link to information about what’s exempt and what’s not. Plus: the DGA wants to be more active in gubernatorial elections nationwide (and, critics say, in federal races), Charles County businessman Charles Lollar says he plans to seek the GOP gubernatorial nomination, the DNR bans ginseng harvesting from state-owned lands, and more.
