Here's how it works out: WAMO-FM will move its 106.7 signal from
Beaver Falls to Wexford, running 38 kW at 568 feet from a new tower
where I-79 meets Wexford Bayne Road just south of the
Turnpike. WAMO-FM's simulcast, WSSZ (107.1 Greensburg), will move from
its current site west of Greensburg way out to a new site south of
Latrobe, just off route 217 north of US 30, where it will run 4300
watts from 305 feet AAT, with a directional antenna. And religious
WRIJ (106.9 Masontown) will move its tower south across the West
Virginia border, where it will run 980 watts from 810 feet AAT from
the same ridge where West Virginia Public Television's WNPB-TV
(Channel 24 Morgantown) broadcasts.
Finally, we're saddened to report the death of Patti Burns, who spent
23 years anchoring at KDKA-TV (Channel 2), much of the time alongside
her father, the legendary Bill Burns. "Patti and Daddy" were the first
father-daughter anchor team when they began doing the noon news
together in 1976; the younger Burns quickly built a reputation of her
own, though, which followed her after her 1997 departure from KDKA and
her subsequent work at public TV WQED-TV (Channel 13).
Patti Burns died Tuesday (October 30) after a battle with cancer; she
was just 49.
