Catching Up With One Of The City's Most Popular TV Personalities, Ira Joe Fisher



He's worked in local and network radio and television, performed in film and on stage, taught in college classrooms and authored several books of poetry. 

He's found success as a talk show host, DJ, reporter, writer, poet, song and dance man and business consultant. But most locals who were in Cincinnati during the eighties will remember him first as the cheerful, backward-writing weatherman.

Today, Ira Joe Fisher continues to write, perform and teach, and he joins us this afternoon, along with WVXU media blogger John Kiesewetter.
