FOX19 Midday Update - New Years Day Edition

Welcome to 2010 -

Since the holiday falls on a Friday it is a great time to take a long weekend.  But not everybody gets the day off.

Most people here in Cincinnati will be watching the Bearcats on FOX19 tonight as they work to take down the Florida Gators.  We have a preview here on  Plus tonight on FOX19 our coverage starts at 6pm with reports from New Orleans and the UC Campus where the party starts at 3:00.

That is followed by our pre-game special at 7 P-M.  Sports director Brian Giesenschlag is in New Orleans.  Rontina McCann is at the offical alumni party and Zach Wells is with more Bearcat fans here in town.

Kickoff for the Sugar Bowl is at 8:30P-M.

And there are some others who are working today as well.  The folks at Christ Hospital were there at 2:11AM when Kaylee Hayes came into the world. 

And if you haven't been outside - it's cold.  The city of Cincinnati has declared a Winter Shelter Emergency to get folks off the street.  And it is going to stay cold for awhile.

Here is the first StormTracker forecast for the New Year:
