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.
In his private life, he likes books, movies, television shows, and music. He is also a big fan of certain foods, and beverages. His hobbies include doing things, not doing other things, and blogging.
This blog takes an unflinching look, behind the scenes, in the newsroom. But mostly, it's just an excuse for you to not do any real work.
Last week, 700WLW saluted Marty Brennaman, for his 40 years with the Reds. Tuesday was my 9th anniversary. Willie is probably making a big deal as I type this, about his 30 years at the Big One.
But, a milestone slipped by earlier this month, almost unnoticed. News Director Jeff Henderson, my boss, has been at 700WLW for 30 years, beating Cunningham by a few days. So, we got him face cake.
Happy anniversary, Chief.
Riverfest is this weekend, and this video shot just a year and a day ago still applies... mostly.
