This is probably as close as I'm going to get to be "living on the air in Cincinnati." Starting today, I can be heard each Monday morning sometime between the hours of 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. talking TV with Mike Miller on WIMA-AM News/Talk Radio out of Lima, Ohio.
Why Lima? Dave Woodward, the program director at the station, sent out a general email to critics looking for an expert to talk about what's coming up in TV each week Mondays with Miller. After careful consideration and intense scrutiny (well, okay, I was the first to actually call him back about this on the phone), I was chosen.
WIMA is a Clear Channel station featuring national conservative personalities such as Rush Limbaugh and Fox News' Sean Hannity; Woodward must be looking to tilt things to the Left by importing a Canuck TV critic. The city is in northwestern Ohio, north of Dayton, not far from Indianapolis, the heart of Buckeye and motorsport country. Ben Roehlisberger, Hugh Downs and comedy legend Phyllis Diller all came from Lima, a city of just over 40,000 people.
Mike's been to Toronto, took his daughter Meredith up the CN Tower this past summer and even visited the set of her favorite TV show--Degrassi: The Next Generation. He has one of those rich radio voices that sounds like maple syrup over butter. Listen to the first of our regular radio chats here and visit the station's web page here.
