Xtra Xtra!

Good morning!

It's finally starting to feel (consistently) like fall in the Tristate! Meteorologist Frank Marzullo is saying that we can expect cloudy skies with a few showers/thunderstorms for your Monday forecast. Highs will top out in the mid-to-upper 70s.

President Barack Obama will be speaking at the Seasongood Pavilion at Eden Park this afternoon. Doors open at 10 a.m. and the President is expected to speak around 12:25 p.m. The event is free to the public but a ticket is required for each attendee. Officials are also suggesting that anyone who plans to attend should arrive early due to limited parking in Mt. Adams. Brad Underwood will be live this morning with more on today's event.

A little from the Republican side - Congressman Steve Chabot and other Republican leaders will be holding a news conference this morning prior to the President's arrival. The conference will start at 10 a.m. on the corner of Eden Park Drive and Gilbert Avenue.

Officials are saying that hundreds of protesters are burning cars and throwing rocks at a military camp in Afghanistan following the posting of an anti-Islam film on YouTube. U.S. ambassadors in Muslim religions have been notified by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Embassy in Islambad is closed today as a precautionary measure.

If you or someone you know is looking for a job, here's your chance to get up close and personal with some of the biggest events in the Tristate! Jessica Brown will be at the Bank of Kentucky Center on NKU's campus this morning with more on today's job fair.

It was a great day to be a Cincinnati fan as both the Bengals and the Reds took the wins in yesterday's games! Bengals QB, Andy Dalton, threw for more than 300 yards and three touchdowns to beat the Cleveland Browns 34-27 while the Reds took out the Marlins in Miami 5-4. Be sure to tune-in during our 7 a.m. hour for Dan Wells and Sheila Gray to give you the cue to call to win a Reds game on us!

Today marks the start of some BIG changes here at the station! Starting at 9 a.m., you will now be able to get a double dose of the FOX19 Morning Xtra as we are tacking on an XTRA hour to our fun talk show! Following the X, Rachael Ray will be airing at 11 a.m. and later on tonight, you can catch  Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy at 7 & 7:30! We're definitely excited about the new lineup and we hope you are too!
