Chronicle: Pittsburgh’s Holiday Traditions highlights the remarkable ways the holidays come alive for families in western Pennsylvania. The hour-long program follows the old customs, new traditions and hidden celebrations of the season.
World class parks, fishing, river gorges, thousands of miles of trails — all in Pittsburgh. Who knew? An hour-long special explores outdoor life in Western Pennsylvania. “This special just might introduce you to places and experiences you didn’t even know existed,” says Charles W. Wolfertz III, WTAE’s general manager.
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.
