NewsNight Akron to return to 9 p.m.

Well, it was nice while it lasted.

Beginning Jan. 15, NewsNight Akron will move from its 9:30 p.m. time slot back to its original time of 9 p.m. The show had changed times to allow NeoTropolis time to debut at 9. The Thomas Mulready production will now air at 8:30 p.m., so both shows will remain interlocked.

The Jan. 8th show will be our traditional "Newsmaker of the Year" debate. Last year's winner was Ralph Regula, and Dr. Luis Proenza won the previous year. This year's show will include a live audience as members of Leadership Akron will be in attendance.

As a new nugget to the debate, we are inviting the public to weigh in as well. A list of the 16 finalists should be on-line soon at Western Reserve Public Media , so weigh in and vote. You can also share your comments here.

I can tell you that the panelists have already begun quite a debate with email traffic .. I can only imagine the fireworks for the actual show.

The guy with the hat must go. Program is not bad but we cannot stand looking at that absurd hat anymore.

Where is the common sense which we credit to the station??

what hat? no one wears a hat on the NNA broadcast .. or are you referencing the NeoTropolis show?
