As WTK noted, Perry went to KDKA from KQV. He took over KD's all-night show after Jack Wheeler was fired in 1974.

Cigna was looking to move to San Francisco after the WJAS/13Q switch in '73. Alan Mitchell, who was PD at KDKA then, called and invited him to do some fill-in work. Cigna figured he'd do that for a few months, then move west. Things went well, and Cigna wound up with the 9 to midnight show on KDKA. He stayed there until 1983, when he moved to mornings to replace Jack Bogut. He stayed on the morning shift until his retirement. He had a longer tenure on the KD morning shift than either Bogut or Cordic.

Cigna made the 9 to midnight show successful after Jim Jeffrey's show had failed in 1972, trying to fill the old "Party Line" slot.
