In the past couple of days it has been made official that two hosts are departing from the Red Maryland Network. Andrew Langer announced yesterday morning that he was leaving and Doug Gill’s announcement took place since then.
Brian Griffiths of Red Maryland made the following statement about the departures:
I can speak for all of us at the Red Maryland Network that we’re sorry to see Andrew and Doug go. Andrew has been instrumental in helping to grow the Red Maryland Network and was a source of many ideas and concepts that worked their way into our coverage and our programming. Doug’s work as a journalist and radio host, both with us, and with WBAL speak for itself. We will miss them both as colleagues and as friends, but as often is the case it’s not a goodbye but a so long for now, as you will certainly hear them on our airwaves again.
As usual, we at Red Maryland never rebuild, merely reload, and there are more great things ahead for our Network.
Langer posted the following on Facebook on Monday morning:
So, I have a bit of a melancholy announcement. It’s with a heavy heart that I have to announce that I am stepping away from the Broadside after just over two years.
As many of you know, since Halloween I’ve been single-parenting for much of the month, since my wife, Janice Moseley Langer, was transferred to her new assignment at Langley AFB in Virginia.
This has put my time, and scheduling, at a premium, and with the new year upon us and a move for the whole family in six months, I’ve decided to do a wholesale review and refocus of my efforts – especially since I’ve got some new professional projects that I’m trying to roll out.
I have nothing but respect and love for Mark Newgent, my Broadside partner, andGregory M Kline & Brian Griffiths, my friends and the other founders of RedMaryland, and my broadcast colleagues on the RedMaryland Network, Jackie Wellfonder & J Doug Gill.
When reached for comment, Doug Gill told me “he appreciates the opportunity given him by the Red Maryland editorial board.”
Doug also went on to tell me that he left more for personal reasons than professional ones, and that he’s grown weary of the sorry state of the opposition party in Maryland.
