Bengals scrimmage on the 'net

With little publicity, drew about 13,500 hits Friday night for live videostreamed coverage of the Bengals scrimmage at Georgetown. Video from two cameras accompanied the Bengals commentary from Brad Johansen and Dave Lapham. It was kinda spartan, but Bengals fans were able to see the action. Says GM Chris Sehring: “It was an interesting experiement. We are very pleased with it.”

New radio station finally on the air
WMWX-FM (88.9), licensed to Miamitown, signed on Sunday, a week later than expected. Owner Bill Spry says the format is a mix of AAA and classic rock. The signal covers northwestern and western Hamilton County, and most of Butler County.

Can you get more information about the new deal with the Reds and Fox Sports Net? I am hoping that there might be a chance for games to be broadcast in HD.

yeah and marina was on the 11pm newscast. So I guess that means derek is going back to the am shift on tuesday. Thursday the same thing happened with derek and john bateman. John bateman is a very underated meterologist.

Do you guys really care that much who does weather at what time? Find something better to focus your attention on. It amazes me the scruitiny and fascination bloggers here have on dissecting weather coverage on 5. It's all pretty mediocre if you ask me. And on-air people DO have the right to take vacations just like everyone else. The sky isn't going to fall if Jim O'Brien isn't on TV. In fact, he's probably more likely to make you think the sky IS falling when he IS on TV, which seems to be 24 hours a day.

Agree with the previous poster, some folks take their weather a little too seriously...
