PITTSBURGH SHUFFLE

Two former high-profile Pittsburgh tv news personalities are getting bounced around the schedule at formerly relevant KDKA Radio, now an Entracom property

Since last December, for KDKA-TV reporter Marty Griffin and ditched WTAE anchor Wendy Bell have been sharing the afternoon drive mic on the onetime legacy radio station.

Now they are going their separate ways, with Bell hanging on to afternoon drive and Griffin returning to his old slot – mornings from 9 to noon,

Bell’s announcement for the change turned out to be divisive on social media.

The love-her-or-hate-her media personality had re-posted a fake tweet a friend had created.

It resembled the President’s account, announcing Bell’s new show. Despite the fact that her Facebook page immediately posted a disclaimer, the damage was done in the eyes of social media troll community.

And it was on.
