I’ve been a fan of Baltimore’s 98 Rock (WIYY) for many moons now. There are very few radio stations that I listen to, but this one so happens to be one of the best…in my humble opinion. Today, Baltimore’s queen of rock, Sarah Fleischer is rocking the airwaves for the last time. After 38 years of service, she decided to open a new chapter in her life by taking off her headphones and setting her sites on family and charity work. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the early 2000’s and it is well deserved. As a radio junkie myself (catch me yelling on numerous stations across the Baltimore area), I can only imagine how hard it must have been to really make your mark as a woman in radio…let alone a rocker! Today, it is an honor to listen to her lineup of artist like Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith. She is on the air until about 3 this afternoon, so if you get a chance, turn your radios up for one last time!
Peace and blessings to Sarah in all of her future endeavors. To me, she is: an inspiration, an icon, and an icon. On behalf of women in broadcasting everywhere, we thank you for your service.
