Congrats to my coworkers (especially Tana Weingartner) at WVXU-FM, who won first place for "Best Newscast" at the Ohio Associated Press Awards presented Sunday in Columbus.

Weingartner also brought home three awards. Here's the scoop from WVXU's Kevin Reynolds:

WNKU-FM

Veteran program director and music host John Patrick has left WNKU-FM (89.7) after 13-1/2 years.

Patrick, hired in September 2002, also was executive producer of the station's "Studio 89" TV show. He starts this weekend as a part-time staffer here at WVXU-FM, and will continue as a part-time producer/engineer for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Radio Network.

You just know that jazz expert Oscar Treadwell is smiling on Cincinnati.

Ten years after his death, his adopted hometown provides the background for a major motion picture about jazz icon Miles Davis, Don Cheadle’s new "Miles Ahead."

Treadwell, who died on April 1, 2006, at age 79, was the jazz voice and conscience for Cincinnati for 46 years.  

If a Miles Davis tune was heard on radio here, most likely it was on Treadwell's shows on WVXU-FM, WNOP-AM, WGUC-FM, WVAE-FM or WZIP-AM. In fact, "O.T." is such an institution that his shows are still on the air here at WVXU-FM 10 p.m.-midnight Sunday.
