by Paul Orlousky

Cleveland TV viewers are undoubtedly familiar with Paul Orlousky - known as Orlo to most. After all he worked in broadcasting for over 50 years, landing in Cleveland on WEWS TV (Channel 5) in 1981. For the next 38 years he was a fixture on nightly Cleveland TV newscasts on Channels 5, 3 and 19.

As an "aggressive" reporter, Orlousky was involved in many of the major stories that happened in Cleveland during the past 4 decades. This book gives an insider's look at many of them. Cleveland viewers will recognize the names such as Dorothy Fuldheim, Dick Feagler, Albert Belle, John Demjanjuk, Jim Trafficant, Dennis Kucinich and others.

He covered major Cleveland events such as the Christmas Story movie, the final Browns game before the move to Baltimore and the RNC in Cleveland.

And what he calls the "horrific" stories such as Ariel Castro abducting the 3 girls, Anthony Sowell murdering the 11 women and the shootings at CWRU and Chardon High School.

All are presented in quick, easy to read vignettes. You may sit down to read one or two and find yourself turning page after page as your interest builds.

It's a fun look that gives another view of people and events that Clevelanders are so familiar with.
