Light It Up Like Vegas

FOX Sports Ohio is thrilled to offer a unique Cavs preseason special featuring Mike Polk called Light it up Like Vegas. Light it up Like Vegas, presented by Yes on Issue 3 and Labatt, is the story of a Cleveland sports fan who's tired of being disappointed. While he struggles with the decision of whether or not to leave his hometown for a bigger market, he is given hope in a futuristic glimpse of Cleveland after the Cavaliers win an NBA Championship.

Created by EMMY Award winning Producer and Director Leo Simone, this 60-minute program features local comedians Mike Polk and Chad Zumock, community activist and artist Rashad Jabri as well as a cameo appearance by Wayne Newton.

We hosted an exclusive screening event at Cleveland's PlayhouseSquare Allen Theater in which over 700 fans were treated to a private premiere of the show. It hits the air Oct. 26 at 9pm.
