From WHGM AM & FM (The Point):
Steve Rouse, known as one of the most successful and well known Baltimore radio personalities, is making his return to the radio airwaves on Monday October 12th at 6am on Havre de Grace radio station WHGM AM & FM (The Point).
“I’m not sure what has happened here.” Rouse Said. “I was pretty convinced that I was done with radio and enjoying the farm. Next thing I knew, I was sitting in a meeting with General Manager, Jeff Davis, Sales Manager, Bob Mathers and a young, enthusiastic sales, programming and marketing staff. There was some magic there that I wanted to be a part of again. Havre de Grace has always been a favorite spot of mine, with its arts scene, history, great restaurants, beautiful waterfront and the cool people that live here. I’m looking forward to making Rouse & Company a fun place to be every morning and Northern Maryland’s morning show!”
“We are extremely excited bring The Rouse & Company morning show to the station and allowing our younger demographics the opportunity to experience a morning radio show that focuses on Harford & Cecil County”, says General Manager Jeff Davis.
Annie Beccio AKA: Annie B will be joining the Rouse & Company morning show. Annie is longtime friend and band mate of Steve’s band, Stevie & the Satellites. She also was a co-host of Steve’s TV show “Baltimore Saturday Night” which aired Saturday nights on WMAR TV 2. “I am extremely thrilled to be working with Steve again, we’ve had so much fun in the past with music, parodies and most of all, friendship. I look at this as a continuation of where we left off”, says Annie.
The new Rouse & Company show will be filled with features, parodies and great camaraderie between Steve & Annie and others who will be joining the show.
The Rouse & Company show ran for 17 years, from 1988 to 2005 on WQSR in Baltimore prior to the stations switch to the Jack FM format. After the Rouse & Company show ended, Rouse did fill in stints on WBAL, 98 Rock and hosted the morning show on WLIF 101.9 Lite FM. Since then, Rouse has been farming full time on his organic farm in Fallston, rightfully named “Rousedale Farm.”
