Kevin O’Connor will appear at the Dispatch Home and Garden Show

| The Columbus Dispatch

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.

Register for the show at DispatchHomeandGardenShow.com. Guests who pre-register by Wednesday will receive one free ticket to attend the Spring Dispatch Home & Garden Show presented by Ohio Mulch.

At this year’s online event, guests can still explore home-improvement ideas, talk in real time with knowledgeable local craftspeople and contractors and check off some of the items on their home-improvement project list. 

And, as in previous years, celebrity guests, including O’Connor, will be making appearances.

O’Connor is scheduled to speak to the online audience at 11 a.m. on Saturday and answer questions beginning at 11:30 a.m.

“This Old House” celebrated its 40th anniversary last year.

“It’s the longest running (home-improvement) show, and, without trying to thump our chest, it’s not just something that’s barely hanging on,” O’Connor said.

“It’s still the most highly watched.”

O’Connor was a corporate banker when he and his wife wrote a letter to This Old House magazine asking for help with wallpaper. The couple appeared in a segment of

Jasmine Roth Hosts New HGTV Show That’s All About Renovating Rental Homes

Today, HGTV premiered an exclusive first look at a new series called Rentervention. The show, which has not yet been ordered to air, is exactly what it sounds like: a rental intervention. While many might find it difficult to style a rental, Rentervention shows renters how to make their temporary space feel like home — without getting out the power tools.

The series is hosted by design star Jasmine Roth of HGTV’s Help! I Wrecked My House and TV personality Brian Balthazar. In the pilot episode which debuted today, two renters living in the same complex, Ray and Tamesha, were paired up with designers Kelley Moore and Kyle Schuneman respectively. Then, each tenant-designer duo was given 48 hours to pull off a stunning rental transformation.

To add a little competition into the mix, photos of each transformation were then posted on HGTV’s social media accounts, where fans decided which renovation was best. Yup, your “like” may have helped choose a winner. The prize? Six months of free rent—not too shabby!

As more details become available on Rentervention, we’ll be sure to keep you updated. If this series is ordered to air, it will be one of HGTV’s first show focusing entirely on renovating rentals! You can stream the pilot episode now on Sling.

LSU Football Quarterback Myles Brennan “Motivated” to Show Improvements After Week One Loss

The critiques on Myles Brennan and his first performance as a starter for LSU were varied. While the Tigers’ quarterback looked uncomfortable at times in the pocket and missed a few receivers down field, coach Ed Orgeron saw many positives in the performance as well. 

Brennan threw for 345 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the loss to the Bulldogs. On the surface those numbers aren’t bad but what the program and it’s fans have come to expect from the quarterback position has changed drastically in the last year.

When meeting with SEC media reporters on Wednesday, Orgeron said that Brennan flashed his immense potential against the Bulldogs and now it’s about getting that consistency on the right track.

“Myles made some big plays, he made some big throws down the field, scored 27 on offense,” Orgeron said. “But there are some things he can get better at. We’re just used to seeing elite at that position and we want him to become elite. He’s working towards that.”

Brennan has handled himself well in the week of practice since the program’s first loss in nearly two years. Center Liam Shanahan told reporters on Tuesday that Brennan came into Monday’s weight lifting session locked in and feels he’s ready to take that next step.

“We got our lift in on Monday morning and I could tell he’s ready to kind of bounce back,” Shanahan said. “We’re gonna do everything we can to protect him so he can have an easier job.”

Orgeron said in the two practices since the loss, Brennan has made strides in the areas he needs to work on. 

“He’s stepping up in the pocket, making better decisions and he did it yesterday, he had a really good day yesterday,” Orgeron said. “Myles has been wanting to

“We’re excited to connect homeowners who are eager to get their home improvements underway with local contractors. By hosting a safe and accessible show, we’re helping reopen the economy and support area small businesses,” said Diane Welhouse, executive director of NARI Milwaukee, in a news release. “Nearly 80% of our members are small businesses with fewer than 10 employees so the annual show is important to them.” 

With people staying at home more during the pandemic, NARI members have said that business is good even though some segments of the economy are seeing significant declines as a result of COVID’s effect on business.  

“Today’s home is working overtime as adults and children are using it as their restaurant, office, classroom, entertainment spot and vacation destination,” Welhouse said in the release. “NARI Milwaukee members report many homeowners are looking to improve, repurpose and expand their space due to these increased demands.”

The show will have a limited capacity with one-way aisles to enforce social distancing. All exhibitors
