On this page, you will find his weekly column, Politically Speaking; the Monday morning political chats with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik and other news coverage by Wilkinson. A native of Dayton, Ohio, Wilkinson has covered every Ohio gubernatorial race since 1974, as well as 16 presidential nominating conventions. Along with politics, Wilkinson also covered the 2001 Cincinnati race riots, the Lucasville prison riot in 1993, the Air Canada plane crash at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in 1983, and the 1997 Ohio River flooding. And, given his passion for baseball, you might even find some stories about the Cincinnati Reds here from time to time.

The first of three presidential candidate debates is just more than three weeks away. 

As of now Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will be on the stage, but Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson is trying to join them in what will surely be the most unusual presidential debate in recent memory.

Joining us this afternoon to discuss the current state of the presidential race are Political Junkie Ken Rudin and WVXU political reporter Howard Wilkinson.
