The Stash?!!? Not the Stash!


KDKA is not going to renew its contract with John “The Porn Stash” Steigerwald.

Mike Zuppone, a producer who has been doing more on-air work, will get consideration. Paul Alexander, formerly the No. 3 man in the KDKA sports department and now with FSN, also would be a candidate, if he is interested. If KDKA is looking for a female, and some insiders insist they are, Trenni Kusnierek, also of FSN, would be a leading candidate.

What this city needs, in addition to warmer weather, dryer weather, and less pigeons, is a kickass female sports anchor who knows her shit.

Could be Trenni. Should be PittGirl.

Sonni Abatta: Tonight at 11:00, my friend PittGirl breaks down the ten hottest local sports stars and has a special one on one interview with Big Ben Roethlisberger in which she finally comes to terms with just how much he annoys her.

    He’s got his new radio show, so I’m sure John and his ‘stash will be alright!

    I’d rather see an interview with Troy too. Or James Farrior. Or Willie Parker. Or Heath Miller. Or Alan Faneca for that matter. Basically anyone in the black and gold BUT Ben.

    I know, it’s nitpicking, but I can’t believe the PG spelled Mike Zappone’s name wrong. Come on, Smizik, do you even watch this stuff?

    They must have heard me complaining about his incoherency in reporting from Gateway Center.

    Um…you said “and knows her shit.”

    That automatically disqualifies you.

    Steigy was not afraid to voice his opinion, which helped him gain loyal fans. But I am sure some of his comments did not sit well with KDKA. Steigy thought the “fix was in” for the Casino slots license. He also stated how pathetic the Pirates are and will be if they continue to be the lowest paying team in MLB.

    No more Steigerwald? Quick … somebody fly an ugly sweater at half-mast.

    Note to the suits at KDKA: If you don’t hire Pitt Girl, please bring on some young hot sports stud.

    A hot chick doing sports. Okay by me. But don’t badmouth John S. His radio show is okay. Better than okay. I heard his interview with the Chartiers Valley fired/then re-hired coach and the school board member who apparently led the charge to have the coach canned. John was (as Smizik pointed out) very fair in letting both express their opinions. A few days later, the coach is rehired. John shed light on an decision apparently made in the dark. And he did it on a show barely two weeks old. HELLO??? Someone was listening. John realized this was an important LOCAL story and did everything he could to show all sides. TV doesn’t always allow you to do that… John was smart enough to keep trying anyway. Nice.
