Great job on the followup, Margaret!
Yeah, I don't keep an eye on the Cincinnati market as much as I did in the past...I made a decision to focus on the "home turf" of Northeast Ohio because, well, that's where I am.
Trying to cover Cincinnati from here was difficult, since I didn't really have a sense of the "lay of the land" outside of a familiarity with, well, WLW. Ask Cleveland traffic reporters about that, if Kiese's recent post is to be believed.
But I always thought the hand-wringing in Chicago over McConnell going to Chicago and WGN was a bit overdone. He was lumped in with his former WLW stationmate Bill Cunningham, and they were presented as basically the same kind of host. Willie's a bomb thrower, and McConnell is more measured. I know that even in Cleveland.
I wish we had someone like Margaret doing this here in Ohio. I'd be the natural person to do it up here, but my voice will never be attached to anything connected to OMW, so, sorry.
