The long-time host of “This Old House,” the ground-breaking home-improvement television show, will appear — virtually — at the Fall Dispatch Home & Garden Show on Saturday.

Kevin O’Connor, who has been host of the PBS show since 2003, last appeared at the Columbus show two years ago. On that occasion he was here in person, of course.

“I do a lot of home shows, but this is my first virtual one,” said O’Connor, 52. 

“But I think people understand why that’s necessary this year, and know exactly what to expect.”

Because of the pandemic, this year’s home and garden show will be online and on demand. The show will be live online Thursday through Saturday and the online exhibit hall will remain open through the end of the month.

Titans’ Kevin Byard can share home-birth story with his son ‘for the rest of our days’ – Tennessee Titans Blog

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Kevin Leon Byard IV was due to be born on Aug. 24. But he had his own schedule, coming a day early and forcing his dad, Tennessee Titans safety Kevin Byard, into action.

Byard helped deliver his son at home on Aug. 23 while receiving instructions over the phone from a doula.
