Abstract (Document Summary)

[Brent O. Gunts Jr.], a pioneering on-air Baltimore broadcaster who was later vice president and general manager of WBAL-TV for 14 years, died of complications from a stroke Wednesday at the Roland Park Place retirement community. The former Homeland resident was 86.

"Brent was a legend in Baltimore. He was a thoughtful, innovative, sincere and honest human being. He was community-minded and never blew his own horn," said Vince Bagli, retired WBAL-TV sports anchor.

In 1973, when Mr. Gunts resigned from WBAL, an on-air editorial praised his years at the station: "It is, in great measure, due to Brent Gunts that the quality of television news and public affairs programming in this town is as high as it is. He set many of the standards. He prodded television news in Baltimore to grow up, and today, it no longer depends, as it once did, on two-alarm fires and expressway accidents."
