TV stations help their local communities countless ways, year after year. These days, the need for food, warm clothes, toys, and Thanksgiving turkeys is much greater because of the pandemic. And stations are responding to the need.
To celebrate the station’s 60th anniversary, WTAE chose to draw attention to Pittsburgh’s hungry with an all-day telethon to collect food for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. “In our minds the only way to truly honor our 60-year relationship with the Pittsburgh community was to give back,” said Charles W. Wolfertz, WTAE’s general manager.
