Since the digital conversion was supposed to happen in February, sweeps month was pushed back to March. However, you won’t see KDKA-TV’s (2) Patrice King Brown for at least part of the ratings period. She tells the PG that she’s recovering from surgery of a torn Achilles tendon. She plans to be back in a few weeks when she can bear weight on the leg, but until then she’s on the couch.

Brown joins co-worker, traffic reporter Jim Lokay on the list of the recovering. Lokay has spent a few weeks recovering from surgery for a torn ACL. PBRTV has kept a watchful eye on his progress and recovery is slow but sure.
