Pittsburgh N' At with Dave & Dave
A fun and fast-moving hour-long celebration of Pittsburgh, produced and moderated by WQED's Dave Rhodes and Dave Hallewell


PITTSBURGH – The Steelers… the views… Kennywood…PNC Park…the roads… Mister Rogers…bridges…Rick Sebak documentaries…Pittsburghese…parking chairs. All are a part of Pittsburgh, and all are part of the celebration of Pittsburgh’s 250th birthday featured in Pittsburgh N’at with Dave & Dave…and Friends, which premieres on WQED-TV and WQED-HD on Thursday, November 6 at 8pm and repeats Saturday, November 8 at 1am and Sunday, November 9 at 3pm.

This fun and fast-moving hour-long celebration of the Steel City is hosted, produced and moderated by WQED’s Dave Rhodes and Dave Hallewell. The Daves are joined by a wide array of local media celebrities like Rick Sebak, Jim Krenn, Randy Bauman, Sally Wiggin, Stan Savran, Larry Richert, Julie Bologna, Anji Corley, and Mike Lange who call Pittsburgh home to talk about the things that make the city and region unique. From the Terrible Towel to Mister Rogers, from Rick Sebak’s documentaries to PNC Park and all the parking chairs in between, this program captures everything yinz love about the Burgh and celebrates it in a fun way.

"Why do we turn down perfectly good TV sound just to listen to the Steeler games on 'DVE? The reason is simple... it's just the right thing to do,” said Dave Hallewell. “And it's just one of the little, unique things that make Pittsburghers special."

"Since we live here, it's easy to take certain things for granted,” said Dave Rhodes. “That's why we want to highlight and showcase the things we love about Pittsburgh. It's easy to complain about things like traffic and weather, but too often we forget what makes this city so special."

Pittsburgh N’at with Dave & Dave…and Friends is made possible with grants from the Pennsylvania Public Television Network (PPTN), the Richard King Mellon Foundation, Heinz Endowments, McCune Foundation, Pittsburgh Foundation, Grable Foundation, Allegheny Regional Asset District, Highmark, and National City Bank.
