From the original Ludlow Garage to Arnold’s, Peanut Jim to the vice-mayor, Jim Tarbell has earned the title Mr. Cincinnati. There’s never a dull moment in an interview with the man featured in the big mural on Central Parkway as you’ll hear in this conversation with our Media Beat blogger, John Kiesewetter.

John Kiesewetter joined the WVXU news team as a TV/Media blogger on July 1 2015, after nearly 30 years covering local and national broadcasting for The Cincinnati Enquirer. He’ll be posting news about Greater Cincinnati TV, radio and movies; updating your favorite former local TV/radio personalities or stars who grew up here; and breaking news about national TV, radio and media trends. You’ll also learn about Cincinnati’s rich broadcasting history.
