Sexual harassment allegations against former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes reportedly reach back more than 45 years, when Ailes worked on WKRC-TV's daytime "Dennis Wholey Show" in 1969.
Ailes, then in his late 20s, harassed a 19-year-old model auditioning for Channel 12's short-lived syndicated show, according to Gabriel Sherman's July and September stories in "New York" magazine after former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson sued Ailes on July 6. Two weeks later Ailes resigned.
WKRC-TV viewers will see a female meteorologist on "Good Morning Cincinnati" next month, but she's not who you might expect.
Channel 12 hired morning meteorologist Tera Blake from Cleveland's WEWS-TV Monday to do mornings newscasts with John Lomax, Bob Herzog and Sheila Gray. Evening meteorologist Erica Collura had been seen on "Good Morning Cincinnati" in late October.
Changes are coming to WKRC-TV weather sooner or later. My guess is sooner. In 10 days, the November ratings' sweeps start. Don't be surprised if WKRC-TV names a chief meteorologist to succeed the late Tim Hedrick before sweeps start Oct. 27.
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.
