Celina Pompeani will be busier than morning rush hour
Those hometown KDKA family promos will really feel natural for Celina Pompeani: She's started working at the station where her father, Bob Pompeani, has been a sports anchor since 1982.
According to Joanne Klimovich Harrop's story on TribLive, the station welcomed Pompeani during the morning broadcast, and she will give traffic reports on a freelance basis starting the week of Oct. 16, replacing the departing Sarah Arbogast.
"Ever since I was little, it was always my dream to work at KDKA with my dad," she says. "I am honored to be a part of the fabulous morning crew."
It will mean going to bed much earlier than usual. Celina Pompeani, 25, of Robinson plans on waking by 1:15 a.m. so she can be there by 4 a.m.
"I don't want to be late," she says.
She will still be working for the Pittsburgh Penguins, where her hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., as well as having to attend home games and weekend and evening events for the team.
