Martha Stewart, Bob Vila and you

Consider this an open audition call for “anyone who knows their way around a drill or a shovel.”
Jay Shatz, the former Ch 9 reporter who produces 700 hours of “how-to” TV shows for DIY and other channels, is looking for the next Martha Stewart or Bob Vila to star in a show for fall 2006. Newport-based JayTV wants “energetic, enthusiastic and motivated” weekend do-it-yourselfers or experienced professionals in both home improvement and gardening categories.
All entrants must submit a photograph, a biography with qualifications, and a brief explanation of why they should be chosen to host a TV program. E-mail entries to

Cincinnati on CNN Sunday
Union Terminal will serve as the backdrop for CNN’s “War in Iraq: Voices from the Homefront” documentatry on “CNN Presents” at 8 p.m. Sunday. Don’t expect to see a whole lot from Cincinnati in the one-hour show, taped in locations from North Carolina to Idaho. CNN Senior White House Correspondent John King taped the opening at Union Terminal Oct. 6 because President Bush had made his case for going to war in a national telecast from the rotunda in October 20002.

Here are two cable shows to put on your weekend TV radar: Elton John talks about his career on “Inside the Actors Studio (8 p.m. Sunday, Bravo)....
"Off To War" (10 p.m. Sunday, Discovery Times Channel) follows Arkansas National Guard soldiers to the battlefields of Iraq. From 7-10 p.m. Sunday, Discovery Times repeats three episodes from 2004 showing the same soldiers preparing to go to war. Seven new shows will air through November at 10 p.m. on Discovery Times Channel. I repeat: the Discovery Times Channel, way up the dial on the ditigal level, NOT the basic-cable Discovery Channel.
