Tim Benz is headed back to Pittsburgh after 15 months at WEEI in Boston. He announced today on his Facebook page where he’ll be working next.
Starting Monday 8/10 I’ll be starting a new job with Trib Live Radio. Pleased to say that I’ll be joining my friends Ken Laird, Guy Junker, & Josh Taylor on Trib Live Radio M-F/10-1. I’ll also be returning to the hosting chair during the Steelers post game show on WDVE and 970 ESPN with Charlie Batch. Plus, on Wednesday’s listen to Countdown to Kickoff on 970 ESPN at 7:00. I really enjoyed my time in Boston, even though it was very short. Those I worked with at WEEI were tremendous. I was given an incredible job there. And I was honored to have been given the chance. But working in Boston, with Kate still living at home in Pittsburgh meant we were only seeing each other about 40 hours a month. So when the chance arrived to work back in Pittsburgh again I thought it was best for us personally and professionally to come back. I’m thrilled to be with her again full time and to be back in a place I called home for most of my adult life. And I am grateful for the year+ I spent in Boston. Looking forward to getting re-established in Pittsburgh and seeing friends I thought I may not see again for a long time.
