At least two dozen riders were stuck on a roller coaster at Six Flags in Upper Marlboro, Md., earlier Sunday afternoon, according to Prince George's County police.
Various reports say the riders are suspended anywhere from 45 to 75 feet in the air on a ride called Joker's Jinx.
I began my radio career in Washington in 1993 at a news/talk station, working overnight playing back reruns of talk shows that aired earlier the day before. At that time we were recording the shows on reel-to-reel tapes!In order to get my foot in the door with an on-air position, I took a job with a station in Winchester, Virginia. Once a weekend (and sometimes twice), I would trek 75 miles from Rockville, just to have the opportunity to open the microphone! Within a year I was able to cut that commute in half, working in Frederick, Maryland. In mid-2005 I joined WMZQ, cutting my commute about as much as possible (unless I ever have a home studio built!). I'm here most weekends, and regularly cover a weeknight or two.While I'm coming up on nearly two decades in radio, I'm approaching a decade in real estate, as well. I obtained my Maryland real estate salesperson license in 2003, and have since added salesperson licenses in Virginia and the District of Columbia.In my personal life, I can attest that good things come to those who wait. In mid-2010, a few months before my 39th birthday, I met the love of my life, Claire. She's everything I could have asked for, and more. One year after our first date, I proposed, and (as Chad Brock sang) "she said 'Yes!'" The wedding was one year later, on the same weekend as our first date and our engagement.
