Story topic this week…

A Dirt Road to Cleveland and How I Found My Purpose Here – Chances are you’ve probably seen this one in the comfort of your own home. Romona Robinson makes her Cleveland Stories debut to talk about how she broke barriers by becoming Cleveland’s first black primary anchor, and the city’s first female solo evening anchor. One of Cleveland’s most awarded journalists joins us for a night of stories audiences won’t want to miss.

Romona Robinson Bio

Romona Robinson is an eight-time Emmy Award-winning journalist with decades of public speaking experience. She is currently an evening anchor at WOIO in Cleveland, Ohio and broke barriers by becoming Cleveland’s first black female primary anchor and the city’s first female solo evening anchor. She has earned several prestigious awards, including the Edward R. Murrow Award, the YWCA’s Women of Achievement Award, and the Diversity in Media Award.

Romona’s book A Dirt Road to Somewhere
will be available for purchase.

The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
