Cincinnatians – and especially many former Cincinnatians – love and appreciate their hometown. No matter where you go after you graduate high school, some things define a Cincinnatian. It doesn’t matter whether they settle in Price Hill or Knob Hill, North Hollywood or North Avondale, Cincinnati – for good or bad – kind of sticks to your insides. And because Cincinnati and the region proudly boast some of the best secondary and post-secondary educational institutions in the world, kids heralding from Cincinnati often do pretty well out there in the big, broad world. Not bad for the world’s biggest small town.

From Cincinnati’s first episode: Monday, December 23, 2019.

From Cincinnati is a Podcast from Loveland Local News and High Priority Partners LLC hosted by longtime journalist and experienced radio show host, Joe Wessels. It aims to track down people with Cincinnati-style chili in their DNA to hear their story and tie it into their upbringing in Cincinnati – whether they left and found their way in the world and now only visit, or they still live in town. Everybody has a story – but not everyone is from Cincinnati.

From Cincinnati isn’t a show with a specific agenda. Casual, free-flowing, long-form interviews and the conversations goes where it goes. It’s a chat more than an interview, but there will be questions – and likely lots of them.

If you’re interested in being a guest or know someone who could be, please contact producer/host Joe Wessels at [email protected] or call/text (513) 899-NEWS (6397).
