From the Post Gazette:
- The “Scary Voice” known for doing news promos on KDKA-TV has disappeared. The station has hired a “New Voice.” Neither one has a name apparently.
- Programming note: The Friday night prime time slot for WQED-TV’s Black Horizons has been taken over by the new Bill Moyers’ Journal from PBS. Black Horizons will continue to air on Sundays at 2 PM and re-air on Tuesdays at 12:30 AM.
- If you’re awaiting the new Pittsburgh-set sit-com “Action News” starring Kelsey Grammar and Patricia Heaton, you better prepare for a change. The program title has been changed to “Back to You.” Apparently the title change has nothing to do with WTAE-TV’s newscast name but has more to do with other projects of the same name.
- Looking for your “Weather Watch 4 forecast” and traffic anytime? WTAE has launched a 24-hour channel. It’s available on digital transmission on Channel 4.2, Comcast channel 204 and Armstrong Channel 450.
