However, when I was back in PA, I always enjoyed catching the weekday morning sports briefs on WDUQ 90.5 FM, Pittsburgh's NPR affiliate.
I listened for those morning sports briefs because of the distinctive voice and personality of DUQ sports director Sean Doherty -- and his quirky interactions with morning jazz host Bob Studebaker.
It was thanks to Doherty and Studebaker that I had some general sports knowledge -- especially about basketball and hockey, of which I never knew much.
DUQ and the P-G report that Sean Doherty died Saturday night at the age of 47.
A voice of the Steel City has gone silent.
An aside: I loved it when Doherty referred to Heinz Field as "the mustard palace."
