WKRC-TV

Deb Dixon's first TV dream never came true. Thank goodness for that. She switched majors at Baldwin Wallace College in the early 1970s from sociology to communications because she wanted to host a children's TV show.

Instead she became one of Cincinnati television's best crime reporters, and one of our top TV storytellers, in her 44 years at WKRC-TV. After anchorman Nick Clooney left Channel 12, Dixon became the heart and soul of the newsroom, breaking the biggest crime news, giving hugs and support to her coworkers, and carrying on the spirit of her mentor Clooney.

WEBN-FM

Great music, great memories.

Great fireworks. Great TV.

That, to me, sums up the return to TV of the WEBN-FM fireworks for the 40th annual last blast of summer, after the telecast took a year hiatus, as they say in the television business.
