Radio (and TV) Waves
Citing unnamed but "multiple sources," Bob Smizik of the Post-Gazette says that John Steigerwald's contract with KDKA-TV will not be renewed when it expires in October. That would appear to end Steigerwald's 22-year career at KD, except for what Smizik says would be "occasional appearances." Steigerwald recently launched a daily sports talk show on KD's corporate sibling, WTZN-FM (93.7) "The Zone," and sources told Smizik that he is "looking forward" to concentrating on the radio gig. Steigerwald has been a TV fixture in Pittsburgh since 1978, having begun his career in the sports department at WTAE-TV.
