KDKA-AM, Pittsburgh PD Dave LaBrozzi Announces Retirement

Via a message on Facebook, programming pro Dave LaBrozzi – currently brand manager for Audacy’s news/talk KDKA-AM, Pittsburgh – announces he’ll retire in early April. He writes, “I look back with gratitude. It began a long, long time ago at 1250 WLEM in my small wooded hometown of Emporium,im and I would have never imagined that all of my dreams would be multiplied by two. I was blessed with an amazing journey; from Emporium to New York City and every city in between including Nashville, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Baltimore and Pittsburgh…. The best part of my job was working with some of the best talent in the country. I tried to never get in their way, and I listened in awe to what they created daily. They were the reason for my success, and I am thankful for the privilege of tagging along… The time has come for me to walk away, and I do so with the deepest appreciation. If I worked with you, I hope you can say that I gave you my best and that I helped you succeed. I know my life was richer because of you and I will cherish the memories we created together. Thank you! Now, about that last break…”
