The A Team is Coming!

The No. 1 team is coming to Cincinnati this Sunday, and I don’t mean the undefeated Indianapolis Colts. CBS is sending the A team – top play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz and lead analyst Phil Simms -- for the 4:15 p.m. national broadcast (Chs 12, 7) from Paul Brown Stadium. The game, moved to 4;15 p.m. last month, also will be broadcast in high definition TV.

Big One Talk Radio Idol
Only two more days for folks to get their monologues ready to compete for a talk radio host shift on WLW-AM. The “Big One Talk Radio Idol” contest starts 6-8 p.m. Thursday at Rick’s Tavern, 5955 Boymel Drive, Fairfield. Contestants will have 90 seconds to impress judges Scott Sloan, Jim Scott and other WLW personalities with their take on a topic. Top three from audition, and a fourth from website entries, will make semi-finals. Listeners will pick two finalists on line, and then pick a winner on line after the two co-host a show (during which they’re grilled by Bill Cunningham, Sloan and other WLW hosts). Winner gets to do one three-hour show in January or February.
