Michael Monks prime quality

It is so clear Michael Monks has his thumb on Cincinnati’s pulse. From his thoughtful questioning that stays engaged to acknowledge the often complex answers solicited, to his distinctive voice and palpable concern for and knowledge of the most relevant and interesting aspects of Cincy, we all get to explore her civic and cultural life.
My only fear is that he will be picked off for a national show like The One A. My hope is that he will bring national notoriety to our region as Terry Gross has done with Fresh Air. He has that potential if the metroplex can recognize it and parlay it into a show to meet his caliber.
