Good Sports


Jeff Jacobs and Joe D’Ambrosio have taken top honors from the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.

Jacobs, of the Hartford Courant, has been named best sports columnist in Connecticut and D’Ambrosio, who does almost everything at WTIC-AM and does play by play for UCONN Men’s basketball and football, was named the top Connecticut sports broadcaster.

They’ll receive their awards at a banquet later this year in North Carolina.

Something different may be happening at WDRC-FM.

RadioInsight is reporting the station has registered a new website domain that may indicate new branding. And this new branding, may or may not have something to do with Hartford’s former NHL hockey team, the state animal, or just because it sounds cool.

We’ll keep watching.

All Things Connecticut Airs Tonight with a British Accent

Christina DeFranco writes:

A new year and a new season of CPTV’s flagship magazine show All Things Connecticut! It premieres tonight at 8pm on CPTV with new host David Bibbey, who hails from England. He explores Connecticut with a fresh pair of eyes, bringing viewers a new appreciation for the people and places that make this state so unique.

I’m back, along with my colleague the Emmy-award winning Ed Wierzbicki, the only arts correspondent in Connecticut. In tonight’s episode, I tour Gillette Castle, home of the late eccentric actor William Gillette. I’ll show you some of the castle’s unique features, designed by Mr. Gillette himself to trick his quests: Legend has it he even punk’d Albert Einstein!

Tonight’s episode also features my inspirational Made in CT segment on Tucci Lumber, the Norwalk-based baseball bat company owned by former pro Pete Tucci and his wife Amy.

In his Spotlight on the Arts segment, Ed takes us to Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts to celebrate its 40th Anniversary.

All of this…along with David’s new segment “Breaking Bread” – first stop the Udupi Bhavan restaurant in Middletown.

You Don’t See This Every Four Years

ThemisAt last night’s inaugural ball the state’s top office-holders were introduced and walked the red carpet. Many were accompanied by spouses, but the escorts of incoming House Republican Leader Themis Klarides stood out. Accompanying Rep. Klarides were two longtime friends who happen to be prominent Democrats: Special Counsel to the State Senate Vinnie Mauro and the Governor’s Chief of Staff, Mark Ojakian.

The Return of the Lock Box

As Governor Malloy makes a pitch for a transportation lock box, we are compelled to make this trip back to the future.

For the next few minutes, think of your computer, phone, or mobile device, as a time machine. The year is 2000:

Daniels Leaves 3


WFSB I-Team reporter Hena Daniels is leaving channel 3 and it appears she is leaving Meredith Corporation as well.

Her last day was Monday. In a statement made to Java, Hena did not reveal much about her future plans. Hena was employed by WFSB twice since 2005 in various roles. She left WFSB once to work at a Meredith station in Atlanta before coming back to Hartford for a second round. We wish her the best.
