Reds press conference alert

If Bob Castellini’s purchase of the Reds is approved today by Major League Baseball, he plans a 4 p.m. Friday press conference to speak to the fans from Great American Ball Park. So far Channel 12, WLW-AM and WSAI-AM (HOMER 1360) plan to cover it live.

Nightly Sundance updates
We could see coverage of “A Lion in the House,” the documentary about five Cincinnati area kids with cancer in the Sundance Film Festival competition, in the nightly “Festival Dailies” special reports on the Sundance Channel.
Comedian Whitney Cummings hosts the half-hour show from Park City, Utah, at 9 p.m. beginning Friday, and continuing through the festival conclusion Jan. 29. The Sundance Channel can be seen on Time Warner Channel 158 and Insight Channel 366.
The five families, their doctors and Yellow Springs filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar are participating in Q&A panels after screenings of the film, which is one of 16 nominees for best documentary. The film was shot at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center from 1997 to 2004. Here’s the link to my Sunday story on the film:

Kiese watching
ESPN makes the Crosstown Shootout a national game at 9 p.m. today, or after the North Carolina-Virginia game.
Can you believe that ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” was the No. 7 show in the ratings last week? Drew Lachey still looks like he’s the only guy in the competition having any fun. He should go a long way. I wouldn’t be surprised if he won.

Kiss Heather Graham and John Stamos goodbye. ABC has pulled their "Emily's Reasons Why Not" and "Jake in Progress" after only two telecasts on Mondays. They might return in March or June, but consider them dead.
