Joseph Visits Kennywood On KDKA Summerblast Day (Part 2)

Yesterday, in the first part of this two-part blog post, I told you about my trip to Kennywood by describing the day in general.  In it, I told you about the clouds that I saw in the skies above the amusement park, I told you about the friends that I met while I was there and I told you about the station’s Mobile Weather Lab.  Now, today, in the second part of this two-part blog post, I’m going to tell you about some of the personalities that I met while I was at Kennywood Park.  One of them recently retired from KDKA after working there for 37 years … and I will tell you which one it is before I end the two-part blog post.  So, without further ado, let me show you the personalities that I met while I was at Kennywood back on July 26th.

On July 26, 2019, I met KDKA anchor Susan Koeppen while I was at Kennywood Park. Susan anchors KDKA’s afternoon and evening newscasts during the week.

The first personality I bumped into while I was at Kennywood was Susan Koeppen.  Susan anchors the 4:00 and 6:00 newscasts with Stacy Smith … and she anchors the 11:00 newscast with Ken Rice.  She does this during the week.

On July 26, 2019, I also met Lisa Washington and Amy Wadas while I was at Kennywood Park. Both Lisa and Amy are reporters at KDKA … and, just last month, Lisa became the anchor of KDKA’s weekend morning newscasts.

I also met Meghan Schiller, who is a reporter for KDKA, while I was at Kennywood Park on July 26, 2019.

I also bumped into three of KDKA’s reporters while I was there.  They are Lisa Washington, Amy Wadas and Meghan Schiller.  Now, Lisa, Amy and Meghan are some of KDKA’s reporters … and, just last month, Lisa became the anchor of KDKA’s weekend morning newscasts.

Before I tell you which KDKA personality retired after working there for 37 years, I’d like to give you a fun fact.  Just last month, KDKA added a regular Sunday morning newscast for the first time in the station’s history.  It airs from 7 until 9 on Sunday mornings.

Now, I’d like you to see the personality who retired recently after working at KDKA for 37 years.

On July 26, 2019, I met Jon Burnett while I was at Kennywood Park. Jon retired from KDKA back in June after working there for 37 years. He was the weatherman there for a number of years … and, before that, he did “Pittsburgh 2Day” and “Evening Magazine.” He also co-hosted “Pittsburgh Today Live” in recent years.

I was able to meet Jon Burnett while I was at Kennywood Park.  He retired from KDKA after working there for 37 years.  He did “Evening Magazine” and “Pittsburgh 2Day” before he became a weatherman for KDKA.  He also did “Pittsburgh Today Live” for a while in recent years.

I hope you guys were able to enjoy this two-part blog post as much as I enjoyed it.  I really enjoyed myself at Kennywood during KDKA Summerblast Day.  I did see some other KDKA personalities while I was at Kennywood, but I did not want to disturb them since they were fairly busy.

Enjoy the rest of your day, my friends!
