Katie Reider Special Tomorrow Night

UPDATE 6/28/09 6:05 PM: We were asked in the comments to this item if the special will re-air.

The answer for you Katie Reider fans out there is: "Yes, it will."

The repeat will be next Sunday night at 6 PM.

We get this news from the Kiese Blog - and will be reaching out to officials at WCET 48/Cincinnati for more information...

WCET will be airing a one-hour special, titled "No Retakes 2009: The Lives and Love of Katie and Karen Reider". The show airs at 8 PM tomorrow night.

As locals may know, Katie Reider, a local singer/songwriter, died last July at age 30 from a cerebral hemorrhage. (A personal aside: A cerebral hemorrhage also killed Your Tri-State Media Watcher's grandfather just over 2 years ago.) Reider's music won 5 local music awards and had been featured on several programs televised nationally, on networks like Lifetime, ABC, and (in 2005) on the WB hit show Dawson's Creek.

According to Kiese:

Local filmmaker Robert Parish produced the film, which includes video from the Katie Reider band playing at the Taste of Cincinnati in May, some 2005 Reider concert clips, and interviews, including one with her partner, Karen Boone Reider. About one-third of the show will be from the "No Retakes" YouTube videos posted by Karen as she drove cross-country with their two children. (Search YouTube for No Retakes Katie Reider.)

Here's a YouTube clip of the show:

Dang! I missed this... Is there a chance they will re-air it? If not, can I watch the entire thing online somewhere? Thanks!
