Bill Rinehart is Senior Correspondent for 700WLW News. Though despite his best efforts, no-one else will refer to him by that title.
He came to the Big One in August, 2004. His beat covers City Hall, Hamilton County Commissioners, breaking news, and anything else that comes along.

And finally, a recommendation from me:
The band is Molotov, and they're sampling the Magnificent Seven, from the Clash, and two other songs. (At least.) Can you identify the other riffs?
