Clarke hasn't done an official show yet, but in several short introductory recordings, the 26 year radio veteran was very excited and intrigued about the possibilities of the medium. He promised big things were coming there, calling it "the future."
Clarke also gave a glowing review to long time, Baltimore independent, multimedia investigative journalist, A.F. James MacArthur, aka "The Baltimore Spectator," heard on WBAL, WOLB, WFBR, and numerous other outlets.
Passing The Torch
Referring to coverage of a brutal home invasion, triple-shooting last night in Baltimore, broken by The Baltimore Spectator, Clarke said in the comment section of the "BREAKING NEWS" portion of MacArthur's podcast, "Such a sad story but great job reporting...you really are filling a void that is needed and I think this is really going to blow up, keep up the good work my brotha!"
According to recent statistics provided by search giant Google.com, The Baltimore Spectator was ranked number one and in the top 20 results for several Baltimore related search terms. The site was also top 20 in the nation for search results related to the General David Petraeus sex scandal.
