Weekend Notebook: Local Tidbits

By admin Published: May 30, 2009

Readers of the HeldenFiles print edition will recall a mention that low-power stations WAOH/WAX (also known as the CAT) are affiliating with the Retro TV Network, which carries vintage programs. They're not alone. Mike Tonges of low-powers WIVM/WIVN/WIVX says that those stations in Canton, New Philadelphia and Loudonville areas have also connected with RTN, and began carrying its programs on Friday afternoon.

This from Fox Business Network:
FOX Business Network (FBN) is declaring the week of June 1 “Red Ink Week,” dedicating a full five days to exploring the increase in government spending over the last 7-8 months and the long-term implications the recovery plans will have on the American taxpayer. The network’s resident ‘Red Fox’ Liz Claman will lead the charge, following the money trail and uncovering just how taxpayers in each state will be affected.

Each day will focus on a different state, with Ohio in the spotlight on Tuesday. Local viewers will remember Claman from her stint at Channel 5 from 1991 to 1994; she also worked at CNBC before going to FBN in '07.

From the folks at Western Reserve Public Media (Channels 45/49): Seth Stewart, a graduate of Kent Roosevelt, is a principal performer in the Broadway show “In the Heights” ( A "Great Performances" documentary about "In the Heights," which also includes Stewart, will air at noon Sunday on 45/49. The show was going to air on the stations earlier this week but "had technical difficulties at the beginning because of the bad weather impacting the satellite feed."
