Pittsburgh sports reporter, Celina Pompeani, will join her dad, longtime sports anchor Bob Pompeani at KDKA in Pittsburgh
According to Tribune Live, Pompeani will join the station’s morning show and do traffic on a freelance basis. She replaces Sarah Arbogast.
“Ever since I was little, it was always my dream to work at KDKA with my dad,” she says. “I am honored to be a part of the fabulous morning crew,” she told the paper.
Pompeani interned for CBS affiliate and worked for WTOV-9 in Steubenville after attending Point Park University.
“She’s told me since she was a little girl that she wanted to work on the same station as me. She will have to wake up early, but she is a coffee drinker like me, so we plan on buying stock in coffee. I am excited to watch her,” Bob told the paper about his daughter’s hire.
She currently works for the Penguins as a TV host and producer and will continue working for the organization while taking on this new role.
