PHILADELPHIA (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — KDKA Radio's Chris Moore was inducted into the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' Silver Circle Society at Saturday’s Mid-Atlantic Emmy Awards in Philadelphia.

The group honors broadcasters of 25 years or more who have made significant contributions to the industry.

Requirements for induction include service to the community involving television or allied media and service to people training for media careers.

Moore was recognized for his work on KDKA Radio and as a host and producer at WQED.

He has been with KDKA Radio for almost 25 years. His talk show airs on Sundays from 5 – 9 p.m. Moore has also hosted “Pittsburgh Now” on Pittsburgh Cable News Channel (PCNC) for nearly a decade. 

Moore worked at WQED from 1980 until 2014, when the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) member station cut several positions due to budget concerns.

His work there included hosting “Black Horizons,” later “Horizons,” that explored local minority communities and the news discussion panel “4802.”  

He is a not only a broadcast veteran, but a Vietnam veteran as well. Moore also produced several documentaries including “Wylie Avenue Days,” “Reflections on Vietnam” and “In Country: A Vietnam Story.”

Moore served in Vietnam from 1970 to 1971.
