 The Final Presidential Showdown Hits Las Vegas

In a Presidential race that has been - to put it mildly - contentious, it seems fitting for the final candidate debate to take place in Las Vegas. Tonight (10/19) beginning at 8 p.m., WKSU will cover this last chance for Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton to confront each other and make their case to America. Hear NPR's live broadcast of the debate at 9 p.m. with Robert Siegel. Listen on-air, through the WKSU app or online HERE (where you can also follow NPR's live factchecker). As an opener, tune in tonight at 7 p.m. for the only debate between the two candidates for Summit County Executive.

This Thursday (10/20) at 7 p.m., WKSU turns to the headlining state race with the U.S. Senator Candidate debate between Sen. Rob Portman and his opponent, Ted Strickland. The Debate airs live from Cleveland. See all of WKSU's coverage of Election 2016 HERE.

 Terry Pluto Covers the Run for the Pennant

When the Cavs won the NBA championship, effectively breaking any "curse" that existed, plenty of people joked that the Indians were next. How many believed it was true? Now, the Tribe is one win away from the American League pennant. But, with a broken-down bullpen, that win will be a challenge.
