Bill Burns' 11:00 news on KDKA-TV was sponsored by Duquesne beer in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The newscast opened with a shot of a bottle of Duke being poured into a glass next to a clock resembling the huge "Have a Duke" (later Stroh's) clock on the South Side, with the hands at 11:00.

I think that was followed at 11:10 or 11:15 by the above mentioned Ken Kirk in his Atlantic gasoline uniform.
