Anchor Patrice King Brown to Retire from Pittsburgh’s KDKA After 32 Years

Anchor Patrice King Brown is set to retire from Pittsburgh’s KDKA after 32 years with the CBS O&O.

“Patrice has spent most of her adult life at KDKA-TV and has made a significant contribution for more than half of the station’s existence. Her warmth and grace have endeared her to viewers and co-workers alike,” said Christopher Pike, KDKA’s vice president and general manager.

King Brown, 55, joined KDKA in 1978 as co-host of the station’s afternoon lifestyle show “Pittsburgh 2Day.”  She would later go on to helm the station’s anchor desk, covering the 4, 6, and 11 p.m. newscasts.

Her final day is scheduled for January 28.
