Couple WLWT Quick Hits

Two Quick Hits on this Friday, both having to do with WLWT-TV 5/Cincinnati:

QUICK HIT 1: Congratulations to WLWT's Sandra Ali and WKRC-TV 12/Cincinnati's Shawn Ley. Their baby boy, Roman Alexander Ley was born Thursday. John Kiesewetter reports that Ley emailed his co-workers that mom and baby are doing just fine.

QUICK HIT 2: WLWT has hired back John Bateman, reports Kiese in the above link.

Bateman had left Channel 5 back in May, when his contract was not renewed. He gets the call back following the unexpected departure last week of Derek Beasley, who bolted out of town to the chief meteorologist job at WPMI/15 in Mobile, Alabama. (And really, working the split shift, who could blame him?)
