I think all of us who went out to GABP to watch our Reds take on the Braves last night could probably agree that it couldn't have been more perfect! Between the Reds winning (4-3), Aroldis Chapman getting a standing ovation as he made his way onto the field in the 9th inning, his 100 mph pitches AND the beautiful weather...it was definitely a great night for baseball!
Speaking of beautiful weather, it looks like it'll be sticking around! Meteorologist Katy Morgan is saying that our warm up begins today with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 80s. You can watch Katy and Frank all morning long starting at 4 AM for your current weather conditions and a complete seven-day forecast to start making those Memorial Day plans!

Anyone else looking to "fly high" today can should make their way down to Party in Park at Yeatman's Cove! The weekly summer party will be featuring a zip-line starting near the purple people bridge and ending in the middle of the lawn and is running at $10/person.
Our morning show anchors have put blood, sweat and tears (slight exaggeration) into the FOX19 grill-off challenge and I'm wondering if we saved the best for last! If you ask Rob Williams, he'll tell you yes, but we'll just have to see coming up at 8:15 when he grills up some BBQ ribs!
24 finalists are now down to two: Phillip vs Jessica are duking it out for the title of the next American Idol. Both have some serious pipes and I think it'll be down to the wire with who wins!

Be sure to tune-in at 8:20 AM for this exclusive interview!
