KDKA (1020) reporter Rob Milford has resigned, the station announced during its morning newscasts today.

Milford, 53, of Castle Shannon was arrested Monday after sheriff’s deputies said he tried to bring a loaded .38-caliber revolver into the Allegheny County courthouse.

He was covering the trial of the alleged East End rapist and told police he forgot the handgun was in his briefcase.

An announcement read by morning anchor Bill Rehkopf during the 8 a.m. news said that the resignation was by mutual agreement.

Milford had worked at KDKA since 2006.
