At least in 1973, KDKA-FM was stereo. Daytime was easy listening, evenings were classical until 1am. FM signed off then because the transmitter was locally controlled at the TV site,so they signed FM off when TV went off. FM ran AM news at 8, noon, and "60 to 6". It was all non-commercial (except the newscasts) because Group W didn't want to pay the talent fees for commercials. They still didn't see FM as being particularly commercially viable then.
FM ran the Pirates network on its SCA, and Pirates baseball when AM was running the Watergate hearings,when I worked there.
