Condolences to family and friends of longtime PITTSBURGH radio and TV personality BILL BRANT, who died FEBRUARY 5th after a long battle with multiple system atrophy at 84, according to the PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE.
BRANT hosted shows on WWSW-A, WJAS-A, KDKA-A, and KDKA-TV/WDTV (TV)/PITTSBURGH over a career that started when he was a teenager at WJPA-A/WASHINGTON, PA.
