friday news review

The deadline is Saturday for an Ohio panel to draw legislative district maps. The Ohio Supreme Court rejected the first set of maps, calling them gerrymandered. The panel is meeting again Friday to try to come up with a plan. WVXU Senior Political Analyst Howard Wilkinson and Business Courier staff reporter and columnist Chris Wetterich have more on the looming deadline.

As the U.S. Supreme Court deliberates a decision on a Mississippi law that could limit or even eliminate Roe v. Wade, lawmakers in Ohio have been formulating ever-more stringent abortion restrictions to prepare for the day Roe possibly falls. That means Ohio’s next governor could play a big role in deciding what, if any, access the state’s residents have to abortion. USA Today Network Ohio Bureau state government reporter Jessie Balmert shows us how that could play out in the governor's race.

The Bengals face the Titans and that has Enquirer sports columnist Paul Daughtery reminiscing about the magic of the 1988 Super Bowl. He joins the show to talk about why Cincinnati isn't a baseball town anymore.
