First Edition with Sean Yoes

Monday-Friday, 5 p.m.-7 p.m.

First Edition is Baltimore’s evening drive-time source for the latest news and information from around the city to around the world. Host Sean Yoes leads roundtable discussions with correspondents, politicians, and community leaders to provide the most relevant news for listeners – from policing and law enforcement policy to education to local, state and national politics. But after the hard news, the show shifts gears to bring words of inspiration, celebrate local students, and talk arts and culture. First Edition closes out the week with Friday’s popular Happy Hour segment, where the team spins the hottest tunes while sampling dishes from Baltimore’s best restaurants.
