New local political pundit segment for television hosted by…Tom Coyne?

From Openers:

Former Brook Park Mayor Tom Coyne, whose drunken antics in 2004 gave local news stations their most sensational footage in years, returned to the airwaves Tuesday.

No, he wasn’t found passed out in a suburban driveway with his pants down. That’s old news. He returned fully dressed and with credentials as an WOIO-Channel 19 political commentator.

Coyne is the lead anchor of a segment called “Politics” that airs during the station’s 5 p.m. hour on Tuesdays and replays during the weekend. Coyne will share the spotlight with various local pundits.

“We are going to have real discussion about things,” he said. “We are going to talk about race, we are going to talk about money and we are going to talk about power and politics.”

Some suggestions: make it available as a podcast and/or with a transcript. Because right now? The WOIO website has no RSS for politics, period. Just local, sports, entertainment, health, business, investigative and editorial.

I couldn’t find any mention of it on the WOIO website, but it’s a pretty visually hard to navigate place. I might have missed it or not searched well enough.

Looking forward to hearing who they choose as the “various local pundits.” Will there be any bloggers in the batch?

Update: Wendell likes the Tom Coyne thing. Or so he blogs.

  1. Apparently, the programmming whizzes, channel 19’s tasteless ratings whores, are trying to replicate the Don Imus incident.
