More Les And More Rants

These two items also revolve around local sports personality Les Levine and his two local TV shows, oddly enough.

MORE LES: It’s something we thought might happen in one of our earlier items.

Levine announced on his “More Sports and Les Levine” show last night that the Time Warner Cable show will expand to the company’s entire Cleveland/Akron/Canton footprint starting with tonight’s program.

Well, at least to the original Time Warner areas such as Akron/Canton, which were specifically mentioned. We also believe we heard him mention former Comcast areas like Mentor and Elyria.

We don’t know if that means the company’s local programming “main” channel will be consolidated, or if that means the WKYC-produced “Akron/Canton News” will start showing up in the former Adelphia service area in Summit County, at least.

Yes, as we’ve said about three dozen times by now, former Adelphia subscribers living within the Akron area – in the former Northampton Township in Akron or Cuyahoga Falls, along with Bath and Copley – still can’t see the newscast ostensibly aimed at them…

MORE KIM: And Les’ other television show, FSN Ohio’s “Cleveland Rants”, will gain another radio personality in addition to new co-host Kendall Lewis.

We didn’t know this one until we stumbled onto the new FSN Ohio page for “Rants”, but here it is:

New to Rants this season is WNCX morning host, Kim Mihalik. As a roving Rants reporter, Mihalik will frequent some of northeast Ohio’s hottest lunchtime spots to get the pulse of Cleveland sports fans for the show. Fans can expect to see Kim and her camera crew at their favorite restaurants beginning next month.

The co-host with “Mud and Mike” on WNCX/98.5’s morning drive show, of course, has something of a sports-related radio background…as the former co-host of the sports-heavy WTAM/1100 afternoon drive show with Mike Trivisonno.

Fans might also expect to see a new picture of Lewis on the page. Right now, his bio is next to a picture of WKNR/850’s Neil Bender, who was last year’s co-host…
