John Shumway steps down from KDKA Radio
John Shumway has stepped down as the morning news co-host on KDKA Radio. His last day was Wednesday.
He will remain on KDKA-TV as a general assignment reporter, according to a statement from Michael Spacciapolli, senior vice president of Entercom in Pittsburgh, shared by KDKA.
“(John’s) tireless work ethic and news judgment has been a cornerstone of KDKA Radio mornings,” Spacciapolli said. “His integrity is unquestionable. Simply put, John is one the most gifted, well-respected journalists in our city.”
Shumway has been doing double duty at KDKA Radio and KDKA-TV for over 15 years. He co-hosted the morning radio show weekdays from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. with Larry Richert.
Spacciapolli said the company worked with Shumway to address his schedule and determined it was best to end the radio gig.
