For the past 50 years, the Cuyahoga River’s fortunes have risen and fallen just like the water that flows down the crooked channel and into Lake Erie.  This week, we’re answering our first question submitted by a listener as part of a new project we’re calling, “OH Really?”  WKSU’s Kabir Bhatia takes us on a river tour.

The 5th Annual Crooked River Commute took place over the weekend as a group kayaked from Kent to Cleveland on the Cuyahoga River and noted how the landscape has changed over the past five years.
