Former Allegheny County Executive Jim Roddey and Duquesne University law instructor Joe Mistick will resume their political tussling on local TV, starting next week.
“Roddey and Mistick on Nighttalk” joins the Monday night lineup on WPXI-TV’s Pittsburgh Cable News Channel, according to Bob Karlovits of the Tribune-Review.
The hour-long talkfest will air alternate Mondays at 8 p.m. on PCNC.
Roddey, a Republican, and Mistick (shown above), a Democrat, were regular panelists on WQED-TV’s “On Q” until the latter wrote a column for the Trib ripping the station for its layoffs and calling out its management.
After the column ran, both men say the station stopped calling them to appear on WQED.
WQED-TV Vice President Deb Acklin denies any connection and told the Trib she wishes them well.
