KQV News Director Frank Gottlieb checked in with PBRTV today. Gottlieb said, “KQV is Pittsburgh’s Knowlegable, Qualified Voice for news. We’ve been here when you need to know from downtown Pittsburgh studios since 1919.”

Gottlieb says the station was first in bringing listeners the news that the jury in the Cyril Wecht trial was deadlocked and ordered to continue deliberation next week. He added that while reporters Elaine Effort and Walt Golden were covering that story, the station was airing live updates from a major fire in Brockway and gathering reaction on the effort to combine city and county governments.

The station is available via 1410 AM and www.kqv.com.
