On July 26, 1949, WCPO-TV debuted on Channel 7 as Cincinnati's third television station.

WCPO-TV – which was moved to Channel 9 by the federal government in 1952 – has done a wonderful job in recent weeks recalling its rich history.  And it will air a one-hour anniversary special Thursday, July 25 (7 p.m., Channel 9).

For more than 30 years, people here have eaten dinner while watching Carol Williams deliver the evening news on WCPO-TV.

Starting Monday, she'll be at home watching the evening news like the rest of us. Williams, who has been working part-time since the start of 2016, retires Friday.

I'm guessing Bill Hemmer knew what his good friend Megyn Kelly was up to when we spoke before his lunch address at Xavier University Wednesday.

It was about 11a.m. – just as Kelly was heading to her secret noon meeting with Donald Trump in Manhattan's Trump Tower. Kelly told "The Kelly File" viewers Wednesday night that she requested the meeting, and they "had a chance to clear the air" during hour-long session.

I  wanted to hear Hemmer's take on Kelly, his Fox News Channel co-anchor for three years (2006-09), whom Trump has demonized as "crazy" and "highly overrated," and boycotted a Fox News presidential debate because of her presence.

Bill Hemmer takes a break from “America’s Newsroom” to head home and speak at Xavier University on April 13.

The Fox News Channel anchor from Delhi Township will address Xavier University’s Williams College of Business Distinguished Speakers Luncheon. His topic: “Leadership: How To Get ‘From Here To There’ Through Technology, Experience And Hard Work.”
