"As we celebrate the centennial of KDKA Radio, the world’s first radio station, we were focused on adding a host that can reflect the energy and pulse of where Pittsburgh is in 2020 and beyond," said Michael Spacciapolli, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Pittsburgh. "Kevin Battle is the perfect person to join Larry Richert on the KDKA morning show and tell the story of our great city."

"There have been three morning hosts at KDKA Radio in my lifetime – Jack Bogut, John Cigna, and Larry Richert, and I am thrilled I get to work with one of them," said Battle. "Larry is part of the fabric of Pittsburgh. I have been a fan of KDKA for a long time and fondly remember listening with my family each morning. I cannot wait to help our listeners start their day off well-informed."

Battle, a Pittsburgh area native, is a news anchor, journalist and a member of the inaugural staff of "Fox News Headlines 24/7."

Previously, Battle served as Program Director and on-air personality for sister station 105.7 The Fan (WJZ-FM) in Baltimore.
