A couple of things to know about WKRC-TV's Rich Jaffe -- and what made him one of the city's best TV reporters -- before he retires Wednesday:

HE STARTED AS A PHOTOGRAPHER: Jaffe first worked in television at WLWT-TV as a photographer, so he knows how to tell a story in words and pictures. Jaffe also shot news at WKRC-TV in the mid 1970s, often paired with Howard Ain. He left Channel 12 just before the 1977 Beverly Hills Supper Club story.

How did Delhi Township native Diana Maria Riva get the role of Mimi, the costume designer on Eva Longoria’s “Telenovela” (8:30 p.m. Mondays, Channel 5, NBC).

Longoria, an executive producer, invited Riva to talk about the role when the former “Desperate Housewives” star was putting together the half-hour comedy about the star of a popular Spanish-language soap opera (Longoria) who doesn’t speak Spanish.

“I had never worked with her or met her. She asked me to come in and meet with her for this role," Riva says.
