  The consensus among Baltimore’s 2016 Mayoral Candidates: Housing Commissioner Paul Graziano must go. It was announced early this week that the HABC and the women who are alleging sexual abuse from maintenance men will enter into settlement discussions early next year. WBAL's veteran reporter, Jayne Miller, gives us the details. Plus, we speak with Sandie Nagel  who has embarked on a needed mission in some of the city’s schools. We’ll also talk to Pressbox Online's Steve Jones about the longstanding rivalry between the Gilman and McDonough football teams. This weekend marks the the 100th regular-season meeting between the Baltimore schools. And musician Victoria Vox shows off her skills on the ukulele.
