I think the moderator thinks it should only be for "good old days Pittsburgh broadcast nostalgia." I don't agree with that. Not all hosts were sweethearts and some were very different off air than on air. Some who are admired, like Hoerth, caused a lot of their own problems.

You see this with one of Doug's big advocates: Lynn Cullen formerly of WTAE and WPTT. She is now stuck doing a podcast for City Paper because she had trouble not keeping her temper under control on air when she argued with callers on her "Lone Liberal" political talk show at PTT.
