Halloween tricks and treats
Expect to see or hear some Halloween tricks and treats around the TV and radio dial Tuesday.
One of my favorite stunts – it’s just goofy fun – is Ch. 12 meteorologist Steve Horstmeyer doing the weather in his skeleton costume against the green screen, so you just see the bones (5-8 a.m., Ch 12). Maybe it’s because Horstmeyer can be such a sliderule geek at times, but he always makes me laugh.
And this year he may be joined by traffic reporter Bob Herzog in his blue Genie costume from"Aladdin Jr.," the Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati show this weekend at Taft Theatre. You can read more about him and the play at
I’m hearing that the country "STAR" simulcast on 94.9 and 96.5 could end tomorrow with some sort of Halloween stunt on 96.5. It’s a tease to a change in format on 96.5 to talk, coming sometime soon. Trades had said the format flips on Nov. 1, but I’m hearing that it won’t happen as early as Wednesday.
TV treats or tricks?
