I thought you said…

A week or so ago we posted that Kathy Berggren was leaving er post as the AAA traffic reporter for KDKA-AM (1020). But you’ve likely heard her since. The Monday and Tuesday after her farewell, she was off the air but back on Wednesday. Larry Richert announced following the traffic report we heard that Berggren is responsible for finding her replacement. “So she’ll be filling in for herself in the meantime.”

Alert reader, Doug, tells us that he saw Bill Phillips on WPXI over the weekend despite the post late last month that he was returning to WTOV beginning January 3. Seems that he was covering the Steelers for both stations during the season. Now that the season is over, it’s unclear if he’ll remain a part of 11’s sports team although as of this writing, his bio is still there! The station were sisters under Cox ownership for about 13 years and Phillips moved to WPXI from WTOV in 2001 under the co-ownership. WTOV was sold (with WJAC) to Sinclair in 2013.
