Hosting City Talk Radio at 7 p.m. tonight

I will be hosting City Talk Radio 7 to 8 p.m. tonight (Sunday) on SuperTalk FM 96.5. It’s my first solo gig on the new show, so I’m pretty excited. Tonight’s guests are Hamilton County Commission President Todd Portune to discuss the proposed sales tax increase to fund a new jail. After the last break (around 7:40), Cincinnati City Council Member Cecil Thomas, chairman of the Law & Public Safety Committee comes in to discuss Friday’s night shooting of a suspect by Cincinnati Police in Over-the-Rhine.

Join the discussion by calling (513) 749-TALK, or #965 from your Cincinnati Bell Wireless phone. You can also listen live.
