WVXU politics reporter Howard Wilkinson talked with Maryanne Zeleznik this morning on a wide variety of subjects: David Pepper's new job as Ohio Democratic Party chair, Gov. John Kasich's inaugural gala going on at the same time the Ohio State Buckeyes are playing for the national championship, and the legacy of the late Judge S. Arthur Spiegel.

Howard Wilkinson joined the WVXU News Team after 30 years of covering local and state politics for The Cincinnati Enquirer. A native of Dayton, Ohio, Wilkinson has covered every Ohio governor’s race since 1974 as well as 12 presidential nominating conventions. His streak continued by covering both the 2012 Republican and Democratic conventions for 91.7 WVXU. Along with politics, Wilkinson also covered the 2001 Cincinnati race riots; the Lucasville Prison riot in 1993; the Air Canada plane crash at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in 1983; and the 1997 Ohio River flooding. The Cincinnati Reds are his passion. "I've been listening to WVXU and public radio for many years, and I couldn't be more pleased at the opportunity to be part of it,” he says.
