CLEVELAND - Interesting places, people and history. That's what you'll see in Leon Bibb's debut show, "My Ohio."
Bibb was raised in Cleveland, he went to school here, married the love of his life and raised his children here.
In the 30 minute show, Bibb takes you around northeast Ohio to the National Air Show at Burke Lakefront Airport.
"It is really a mainstay in Cleveland," Bibb says. Cleveland's director of airports, Ricky Smith says it's truly one of a kind.
"Burke relieves Hopkins of the smaller aircraft, which makes Hopkins on-time performance, which is important to passengers there, one of the best in the country."
That's not all you'll learn about in "My Ohio." Bibb discusses the Cleveland Catholic Diocese, walks us through local census data, genealogy and comics.
"My Ohio" is an inside take on the things, and unique people, that have shaped Cleveland's history.
To Bibb, Cleveland is -- and always will be -- home.
