Longtime WKRC-TV anchor Cammy Dierking has told her bosses she's leaving the station at the end of her contract in December, multiple sources tell me.

WKRC-TV adds another hour to "Good Morning Cincinnati" on Oct. 2 by bumping Harry Connick Jr.'s "Harry" to WSTR-TV.

WKRC-TV viewers will see a female meteorologist on "Good Morning Cincinnati" next month, but she's not who you might expect.

Channel 12 hired morning meteorologist Tera Blake from Cleveland's WEWS-TV Monday to do mornings newscasts with John Lomax, Bob Herzog and Sheila Gray. Evening meteorologist Erica Collura had been seen on "Good Morning Cincinnati" in late October.

If you're not heading to the Ohio River banks Sunday, here are the broadcasting plans for the Western & Southern/WEBN Fireworks on WEBN-FM (102.7) and WKRC-TV (Channel 12).

WEBN-FM will celebrate its 40th annual fireworks with Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks choreographed to a "40 years of fireworks themed soundtrack" on the radio station, WEBN-FM announced in July.

The fireworks will air at 9:05 p.m. Sunday.

What happened to Bob Herzog’s weekly “Dance Party Friday” segments on WKRC-TV? Why did Local 12 stop the music – or make them so sporadic?

Why so few sequels to the clever “Bridgetown Funk” (to “Uptown Funk,” with Green Township firemen and police, and  John Lomax driving Ron Roost’s “Roostermobile”), or “Just Don’t Go” (advising people not to drive during bad snow storms to the tune of “Let It Go” from “Frozen”), or "Traffic Man" (to Elton   John’s “Rocket Man”).

There are two reasons, explains Herzog, co-anchor on top-rated “Good Morning Cincinnati” (4:25-9 a.m., Channels 12, 64):

Sheila Gray and Bob Herzog will be working longer starting Sept. 21, when WKRC-TV expands “Good Morning Cincinnati” to 7-9 a.m. on sister station WSTR-TV (Channel 64).

Gray, who jumped to WKRC-TV last year from WXIX-TV, will be competing longer with her old station. Channel 19 airs local news until 11 a.m. Channel 12’s morning show will air 4:30-9 a.m.

The expanded “Good Morning Cincinnati” premieres Sept. 21, the week most of the new fall TV prime-time series debut.

The majority of daytime changes start the week of Sept. 14, including WCPO-TV’s new 7 p.m. half-hour newscast.  See the list below.
