Cornell McCleary, former Columbus talk show host dies

He also was a blogger. He will be missed. Story here.
    A longtime critic of Mayor Michael B. Coleman, McCleary had posted comments in recent days critical of the decision to demolish Columbus City Center. McCleary had wanted the city to subsidize the relocation of businesses from poorer communities into a new center named Columbus International Unity Center.

    He ran unsuccessfully for Columbus City Council as a Republican in 2001.
    He hosted a radio show on 610 AM WTVN for eight years, ending in March 2006.

Hi Norma, thanks for your post about the loss of Cornell. I worked with him for a few years here at wtvn. With the weather on that night I was fortunate to be called in to go to local coverage. I spent the opening of the show doing a tribue to him. You can listen to it on my personality page on
