A change in the weather is coming to WKRC-TV, and to Scott Dimmich's career trajectory.

Dimmich, weekend meteorologist for six years, leaves Channel 12 – and television – on Wednesday.

Fox Broadcasting

Fox pays tribute to one of my all-time favorite "Simpsons" episodes, "Homer At The Bat," with a one-hour baseball special – but it airs in the middle of NFL Sunday afternoons this weekend, opposite the Bengals-Steelers game.

Why did North Bend native Sydney Benter leave hometown WKRC-TVfor Austin, Texas?

Because success came too fast. Again.

Look for a change in the weather at WLWT-TV, and a new co-anchor for WKRC-TV's 10 p.m. news on WSTR-TV (Channel 64).

Erik Zarnitz, weekend meteologist for seven years, left Channel 5 on Friday. Sydney Benter, the North Bend native who came home from Terre Haute three years ago, anchored her last newscast here Friday before heading to Austin's KXAN-TV.

WKRC-TV adds another hour to "Good Morning Cincinnati" on Oct. 2 by bumping Harry Connick Jr.'s "Harry" to WSTR-TV.

Didn't get a ticket to FC Cincinnati's sold-out U.S. Open Cup semi-final match Tuesday? You can see it on TV.

WSTR-TV (Channel 64) will broadcast the match with the New York Red Bulls live from University of Cincinnati's Nippert Stadium at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 15, and stream at fccincinnat.com/match-stream.

WKRC-TV to the rescue again! WKRC-TV executives reversed a July decision and announced Monday they will broadcast the 40th anniversary Western & Southern/WEBN-FM Riverfest fireworks live at 9 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 3.

Two weeks ago, WKRC-TV (Channel 12) general manager Jon Lawhead was emphatic in a July 26 email to me by writing: "We are NOT carrying the fireworks."

WLW-AM's iconic diamond-shaped radio tower and historic transmitter building on Tylersville Road soon will be casting their shadows on retail stores, restaurants and offices beneath it.

The "Tower Park" planned unit development along Mason's booming Tylersville Road corridor was approved by city council earlier this year, a city staffer tells me.

If you want to see the 40th anniversary WEBN-FM fireworks, plan on seeing them in person.

Managers of all five Cincinnati TV stations – WLWT-TV, WXIX-TV, WCPO-TV, WKRC-TV and WSTR-TV -- tell me they're not planning to broadcast the Western & Southern/WEBN-FM Riverfest fireworks live at 9:05 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 3.  

ABC Television

My favorite memory of Adam West, the 1960s TV icon who starred as "Batman," was when he swung by to visit a local TV icon, Bob Shreve, on Channel 12's "Past Prime Playhouse."

West, who died Friday June 9 at age 88, visited the crazy overnight movie host in late 1975 or early 1976 while in town for a custom car show.

It's the biggest story of my news career, one I've written about for 40 years – the 165 deaths in the Beverly Hills Supper Club fire on May 28, 1977.

For the past two months, I've been speaking to Beverly Hills employees and patrons, firefighters and journalists, for a one-hour documentary. "Inside the Beverly Hills Supper Club Fire: 40 Years Later" airs 7 p.m. Sunday May 28, and 1 p.m. Monday, May 29.

Could Sinclair Broadcast Group's $3.9 billion purchase of the Tribune Media Co. help the Maryland-based media giant launch a competitor to Fox News?

WLWT-TV is "actively recruiting" for a full-time traffic reporter in addition to replacing weekend morning meteorologist Jennifer Schack,  says Branden Frantz, Channel 5 president and general manager.

Northern Kentucky University

You knew her as Anna Townsend when she anchored WKRC-TV's "Good Morning Cincinnati" 2005-2009 with John Lomax and Steve Horstmeyer.  She replaced Cammy Dierking in November 2005, when Channel 12 moved Dierking to afternoons after 13 years.

WKRC-TV

Main sports anchor Brad Steinke is leaving WKRC-TV after two years, so Channel  12 is looking for a "great sports anchor/reporter" with "solid experience" creating online and social media content.
