PHILADELPHIA, PA – November 16, 2021 – Audacy welcomes Dave LaBrozzi as Brand Manager of KDKA News Radio (KDKA-AM/100.1 FM) in Pittsburgh and elevates Kraig Riley to the same role for sister station 93.7 The Fan (KDKA-FM). Both LaBrozzi and Riley will oversee content strategy, talent, operations and branding for each station, effective November 29.
“As both KDKA and The Fan continue to evolve into full multi-platform operations serving our listeners in new ways every day it is clear that both stations need focused leadership,” said Michael Spacciapolli, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Audacy Pittsburgh. “The addition of Dave and promotion of Kraig will help us continue that evolution. There is an expectation of excellence at both stations from the city of Pittsburgh that I have no doubt Dave and Kraig will continue to build on every day.”
“I am thrilled to be back in my favorite city and second home,” said LaBrozzi. “I consider it an honor to lead KDKA, a true legend in the industry. Thank you to Michael Spacciapolli for the opportunity to return to the city I love and lead an amazing group of talent on such a legendary station.”
LaBrozzi has nearly four decades of experience in radio, most recently as Vice President of Programming for WABC Radio in New York City. Prior to WABC, he was Program Director of WPLJ-FM. In addition to his work in New York, Dave spent 14 years as Vice President of Programming for Audacy’s Baltimore stations and has also spent time programming in Nashville, Austin, San Antonio and Pittsburgh.
“I’ve had a passion for 93.7 The Fan since joining the team as a producer on its first day on the air in 2010,” said Riley. “Growing into a role that now gives me an opportunity to influence the station and move it into the future is something I’m equally excited about and proud of.”
Riley has been with the station since its inception in February 2010 and has been the afternoon drive producer since August 2010. He has also hosted the station’s Pirates pre and postgame shows from 2018 through 2021.
