Radio host Brett Hollander will shift from talking sports in the evenings to discussing the issues of the day during the 1-3 p.m. weekday slot at WBAL 1090, the station announced today.

“I’m entrenched in this community in every which way,” Hollander said in an introductory video for the new show. “What matters to you matters to me.”

Hollander also hinted that he will trying to find a sort of non-partisan middle ground, saying that no matter which side of the political spectrum listeners fall on, “the world is not ending every single day, I promise you that.”

The first broadcast will be this Thursday at 1 p.m. The move comes, as The Sun noted, following the December departure of Derek Hunter.

Hollander’s father, Rich, was a reporter WBAL-TV in the 1970s and 1980s, the station said. The younger Hollander interned on the radio side as a Gilman student and returned in 2010, after graduating from Dickinson College, to host WBAL’s “Sportsline,” which later became “The Brett Hollander Show.”

A replacement for Hollander’s weeknight evening slot has not yet been named.
