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.

News anchor Rob Braun said in a WKRC-TV staff meeting Wednesday that he's been getting death threats after Channel 12 started airing a statement by owners Sinclair Broadcast Group complaining about media companies pushing "their own personal bias and agenda."

10 a.m. Thursday March 15 update: Jeff Brogan, WCPO-TV general manager, tells me: "I can confirm that Chris Riva’s last day with WCPO was last Friday. We decided to go in another direction with the position for Good Morning Tri-State and his contract was not renewed. We’re working to position the show to offer the best coverage for our audiences and will determine whether we will have two anchors or one. Kathrine Nero will solo anchor the show for now.

WXIX-TV

This doesn’t surprise me: Morning news co-anchor Kara Sewell is leaving WXIX-TV for a major market, WFAA-TV in Dallas, in her home state of Texas. She’s that good.

The Houston native was hired three years ago by Fox 19.

WKRC-TV

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

WEWS-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.

WEBN-FM

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.

Meghan Mongillo

Former WXIX-TV morning news anchor Meghan Mongillo returns to Cincinnati TV in March as weekend anchor on WKRC-TV (Channel 12). And she can’t wait.

“I don’t start till March, but I’m thrilled with this opportunity! I’m going to be working in a city I love at the number No. 1 station. It’s truly a dream job for me,” says Mongillo, who will fill the vacancy created last summer when weekend evening anchor Curtis Jackson took a Detroit TV job.

For six years, Mongillo was a very popular “Fox 19 Morning News” reporter and news anchor when Sheila Gray, now at Channel 12,  co-hosted the program.

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.
