Around Cincinnati

Sundays at 7 PM

Greater Cincinnati has a vibrant arts scene, and Around Cincinnati keeps you up to date with local, regional and national guests. 

Each week from 7-8pm on Sunday evenings, you'll hear from local contributors who with their guests explore a wide range of subjects from books & poetry, art exhibitions, theatrical productions, area choirs, concerts and musicians, as well as festivals and dance groups.  Some of the contributors include Rick Pender, Anne Arenstein, Jim Stump, Roberta Schultz, Robert Nave, Jane Durrell, David Delegator, Barbara Gray, Dave Lewis, Ron Esposito, Stuart Holman, and Kelly Blewett.  Brian O'Donnell, Frank Johnson, Suzanne Bona, Howard Wilkinson, Robyn Carey-Allgeyer, and Jim Nolan, staff members of Cincinnati Public Radio, also help out.

If you have an interview idea for Around Cincinnati, please contact Lee Hay, Producer/Host of Around Cincinnati, at Lhay@wvxu.org.
