Condolences to family and friends of longtime "THIS IS PENNSYLVANIA" feature host PETE WAMBACH, who died THURSDAY in HARRISBURG at 90. WAMBACH's feature, with the memorable catchphrase "It's a beautiful day in PENNSYLVANIA," aired on over 100 stations from 1969 through 1985 (with a brief haitus in 1979-80).
He also hosted shows at WKBO-A and WCMB-A/HARRISBURG and at crosstown ABC affiliate WTPA-TV (now WHTM-TV) and served as a columnist at the HARRISBURG PATRIOT-NEWS and owner of the WAMBACH WAXWORKS record distribution company in the 1950s and 1960s.
