CBS Talk KDKA-A/PITTSBURGH adds a new local show with former sister Talk WBZN -- now Top 40 WBZW (B94) -- hosts SCOTT PAULSEN and JOHN STEIGERWALD for a "limited engagement" 7-10p weeknights starting FEBRUARY 18th through the end of MARCH. PAULSEN is a veteran of several PITTSBURGH stations, including WDVE, WRKZ, and WBGG-A and STEIGERWALD served as a sports anchor at CBS O&O KDKA-TV from 1985 through last year; both were in the lineup at WTZN in its FM "guy talk" format last year. The new show replaces JONES RADIO NETWORKS' NEAL BOORTZ in the schedule.
CBS RADIO/PITTSBURGH VP/Programming KEITH CLARK said, "SCOTT and JOHN have a wonderful chemistry for two people with such different views of the world. We’re excited to give them an opportunity on KDKA to see what develops with this show. We’re hopeful this show will become a ‘must hear’ for our audience.”
PD MARSHALL ADAMS added, "SCOTT and JOHN will talk about current topics you would expect to hear on KDKA, but with the twist of their different personalities and with a decidedly PITTSBURGH perspective.”
KDKA is also picking up WESTWOOD ONE's DENNIS MILLER, also previously heard on WTZN, for midnight-3a, followed by the syndicated MIDNIGHT RADIO NETWORK 3-5a, replacing the overnight GARY DICKSON show.
