WPXI loses a Major Partner in news content due to a badly worded story.


Recommended Posts

DK Pittsburgh Sports has terminated its contract with Pittsburgh PA NBC Affiliate WPXI (owned by Cox Media Group) after a badly researched story aired on their newscast and social media by reporter Nicole Ford. 

 

DK Pittsburgh Sports  has been helping WPXI with sports coverage for 8 years. https://dkpittsburghsports.com/2022/06/23/dkps-terminates-partnership-wpxi-tv-dk

Good riddance, The Final Word doesn't hold a candle to KDKA-TV's competing  Sports Showdown.  I believe WTAE has a competing sports show as well.

I agree The Final Word can't hold a candle to Sports Showdown. 

 

WTAE does an extra Half hour of news on Sunday Nights instead of a Sports show.

I absolutely love this. The local media needs to be called out more often. They report things in one community and then not in others, when it suits their narrative. Props to Dewan and DK Sports for not just calling WPXI out, but actually doing something about it.
