My Favorite Fright Gag

Here’s another one of my favorite things: It’s goofy, I know, but I laugh out loud every Halloween at Steve Hortsmeyer. The long-time Channel 12 meteorologist does “Good Morning Cincinnati” weather on Halloween in a skeleton suit, standing in front of the weather map. Thought you’d wanna start Monday with a laugh, so tune in 5-8 a.m. Monday on Channel 12.

Three Wishes
Katy Hines, the young Iraq war widow from Fairfield, is given a new start on life by NBC’s “Three Wishes” today (9 p.m., Ch 5). “Three Wishes” gives away three homes to Ohio veterans and their families. But Katy, 23, with a 3-yr-old daughter and newborn son, essentially gets three wishes of her own – a 4-bedroom home in Liberty Township, eight rooms of furniture and a 4-yr scholarship to Miami University.
Says executive producer Andrew Glassman: “We don’t like to be too literal, but we try to do as many things as possible” for people.
For more info, see my story at today.

Did you catch ABC’s “Primetime Live” last night? Kimberly Ray, who used to be half of MIX94.1's “Kimberly & Carson” morning team, was the centerpiece. ABC News did a lengthy piece about the rocky marriage of Kimberly, now a Rochester DJ, and her stay-at-home husband, Jason, and whether they’ll ever stop their bickering – or split.

Sunday best
Michael J. Fox talks about his career and health on “Inside the Actors Studio” 8 p.m. Sunday on Bravo. Don’t worry about “The Simpsons,” because the annual “Treehouse of Horrors” episode won’t air until Nov. 6 (Fox was hoping for Game 7 of the World Series Sunday.) You should know by now: Halloween isn’t over until the Simpsons say it is.

Having once worked at Ch. 12, I can say that Steve Horstmeyer is a real nice guy. Even invited over the low-rung PA's to his house for a party.

Can't say the same about Rob "Rather" (note he says this whenever he screws up) Braun or two-faced Brad Sohandome.

(Also, kudos to John Lomax and Cammie Dierking, both of whom are "awesomely nice.")
