Former CINCINNATI ENQUIRER political reporter HOWARD WILKINSON has joined CINCINNATI PUBLIC RADIO noncommercial WVXU/CINCINNATI.
WILKINSON, who had been with the ENQUIRER since 1982 and left the paper in a buyout this week, is joining the station's news department and will be heard in interviews on "CINCINNATI EDITION" and as an analyst on "IMPACT CINCINNATI." He will also blog for the WVXU website. "I've been listening to WVXU and public radio for many years, and I couldn't be more pleased at the opportunity to become part of it," said WILKINSON.
"HOWARD WILKINSON is such a respected name in journalism, and is one of the hardest working men I know," said News Director MARYANNE ZELEZNIK. "When he told me he was going to be retiring, I knew that he wasn't done working. Bringing him to WVXU where he can continue his political blog, provide expert analysis on our 'IMPACT CINCINNATI' show, interview some of the key city and state leaders for 'CINCINNATI EDITION,' and still be able to follow his beloved REDS, it was too good to be true."
WILKINSON will start with WVXU on APRIL 25th.
