CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - “Sunny Side Up” is a daily morning talk show that airs on CBS-19 News featuring Neeha Curtis and Julian Glover.

Hijab Hooplah: A student-athlete in Toledo is outraged that she wasn’t told that she was disqualified from a cross country meet until after she ran the race.

The reason? She was wearing a hijab.

Everyone from her coach to the refs knew she was ineligible to run the race, but didn’t tell her and give her a chance to fix the problem as they did another runner who had issues with her shorts.

It’s our big talker this morning on Sunny Side Up with Neeha and Julian.
