Quinlivan Update...More personalities/stations on Twitter

A couple of Tuesday items...

Quinlivan to run for Cincy Council: The former WCPO-TV 9 I-Team reporter currently suing the station over her termination, has announced a bid for Cincinnati City Council.

Laure Quinlivan, who also did some special reports for WLWT-TV 5, announced her plans today at a press conference, according to WLWT today.

Her website has this statement:

Hello and Welcome to my campaign web site. I'm just getting started, having announced for City Council on March 10.

Be sure to check back in a couple weeks for video reports.

I am running to bring a new energy and fresh perspective to Cincinnati Council. My 15 years of investigative reporting has resulted in positive changes for our community. I stand up for taxpayers and average citizens.

People may know me for “Visions of Vine Street” documentaries, investigating Paul Brown Stadium construction and proposing solutions for Ohio’s side of the Purple People Bridge.

I can research important issues, make decisions and communicate with the public. I have the passion, experience and tenacity to be effective on City Council.

We wonder how her bid will affect the lawsuit which we previously reported on...

More Radio, TV Personalities on Twitter: We have a few more personalities and stations to add to the list of Cincinnati Radio/TV people on Twitter.

Much of FOX19 WXIX-TV's staff now tweets, including reporter Sara Gouedy, meteorologist Frank Marzullo, and Morning News anchor Rob Williams.

Over at WKRC-TV, the entire Good Morning Cincinnati team tweets. And meteorologist John Gumm just got his own Twitter account. Otherwise, the station's Chief Meteorologist, Tim Hedrick, tweets from the station's main twitter account.

WLWT and WCPO's weather department tweet, too.

Even a couple of Bonneville's radio stations get into the act, with WKRQ-FM 101.9 and WSWD-FM 97.3 having their own twitter pages.

And, to round out, WKRQ's Brian Douglas is also a tweeter, as he and Laura Powell announced yesterday on-air.

And of course, we can't end this part of the update without a quick reminder to follow OUR tweets at twitter.com/tristatemedia.
