Best of 2011: The Best People, 12 Jan 2014 [cached]
Lisa Baden Traffic Reporter This February we didn't experience a plan-spoiling, mood-dampening Snowmaggedon like that of 2010, but one decision at top-rated WTOP left residents of the entire Metro-D.C. region incredibly discouraged. Lisa Baden, the voice of D.C. traffic, was suddenly scrapped from their airwaves. The station decided to take traffic in-house and was unable to hire on Baden, under contract with Metro Networks through July 2012. Ever since it's as if WTOP listeners are reminded on every "8" that their daily commute is now sans their best travel mate. And according to The Washington Examiner, which quoted Baden as saying, 'I've spent an enormous amount of time, shoulders bobbing, snot pouring, on the floor,' regarding WTOP's decision, "the voice" shares our despair. Want to hear Baden with your behind-the-wheel breakfast? For now you'll have to tune into WAVA 105.1, a Christian station (every half hour from 6-9 a.m.). You can also catch Baden on WJLA-TV 7.; -NK

"In Maryland, Montgomery County, the computer that controls the traffic signal apparently has crashed," said WTOP morning traffic reporter Lisa Baden.
She went on to report, "Your signals are not in rush hour (mode) and there is nothing Montgomery County can do to change that except ask for your patience."

Lisa Baden
Lisa is one of the fortunate few who always knew the answer to the often-asked question, "What do you want to be when you grow up? Without hesitation, she'd reply, "I want to be on the radio!"
Her destiny was revealed when she was in the 3rd grade. Her debut: leading the school in the Pledge of Allegiance and playing a patriotic record on the school Public Address system.
With years of experience doing PA announcements and a Mass Communication degree in hand, Lisa (who has a little moxie, if you haven't noticed), walked into a local radio station and announced to the Program Director, "I want to be on the radio! (By the way - this isn't the method of choice.)
He kindly explained that she needed more experience and suggested she get it at the University of Maryland campus radio station, WMUC. The next hurdle: in order to "work" at the campus radio station, you had to be (at least) a part time student. But school costs money, and Lisa didn't have any of that.
Determined to achieve her goal, she found out that full time employees of the University receive the benefit of 2 free classes on campus each semester - just enough to meet the requirement for working at the radio station.
Six months later, she had a job at the University, lots of experience at WMUC, and the Program Director was so impressed - he hired her part time!
Lisa never imagined being a traffic reporter, but she's found it challenging and rewarding. - News Archive, 20 Sept 2012 [cached]
Several months ago, DCRTV reported a rumbling that longtime morning traffic diva Lisa Baden (right) might be leaving Allbritton's Channel 7/WJLA and its "Good Morning Washington" show. Well, we're being told that she's been missing from DC's ABC affiliate for the second week, even though she's not on vacation and is still being heard on CBS Radio all-newser WNEW, 99.1 FM. Baden works for Total Traffic, which supplies traffic and news reports to area radio and TV stations.
Baden Joins WNEW DC traffic diva Lisa Baden (right) joins new CBS all-newser WNEW, 99.1 FM. Baden is currently heard on Cumulus news talker WMAL and also does morning traffic for Allbritton's Channel 7/WJLA. Baden reported morning traffic for all-newser WTOP, now owned by Hubbard, from 1996 to 2010, when WTOP took its traffic reporting in-house. DCRTV hears that Baden will continue to be employed by Total Traffic, the new name for Silver Spring-based Metro Traffic. And WNEW will be getting its local traffic reports from Total.
