Copter Question

I keep getting asked about whether Ch 5 has a helicopter. The answer: No, not until after first of year. WLWT contract for Sky 5 ended Labor Day, when Metro Networks traffic deal expired. GM Richard Dyer says the station will have new Sky 5 in 2006.

Halloween soundtrack
Here's an early reminder that WGUC-FM (90.9) again will air its wonderful Halloween soundtrack, “Tunes From The Crypt,” 6-10 p.m. Monday. Crank it up during trick-or-treat.

FX’s controversial “Over There,” the Iraq war drama, ends its run of 13 new episodes at 10 p.m. today. The war could be over on FX. No official word from the network, but creator Steven Bochco is busy running ABC’s hit “Commander In Chief.”

Big News At CBS News
This could be why CBS hasn’t named a successor to Dan Rather, who left the anchor chair in March: CBS today named Sean McManus to the dual duties of president of CBS News and CBS Sports. Out is Dan Rather's boss for nearly 10 years, Andrew Heyward, whose contract was not renewed. McManus is son of legendary ABC announcer Jim McKay. CBS Sports has experienced a resurgence under his leadership since 1996. Should we consider Heyward another casualty from the faked Bush military records story a year ago? Could we see big changes in the CBS Evening News, 60 Minutes or elsewhere?
